This questionnaire is designed to help to help you decide if you are living in an abusive situation.
There are different forms of abuse, and not every person experiences all of them. Below are various
questions about your relationship. As you can see, each possible answer has points assigned to it. By
answering each question, and then totaling these points as directed, you can compare your score with
the abuse index. You will know if you are living in a potentially violent situation; and if abuse is
occurring, you will have an estimate of how lethal the abuse is.
