BLAMES OTHERS FOR THEIR PROBLEMS

warning sign in abusive relationship

Blaming others for their problems and feelings

when the victim of a crime, an accident, or any type of abusive maltreatment is held entirely or partially responsible for the transgressions committed against him or her (regardless of whether the victim actually had any responsibility for the incident)

EXTRA FACTS

  • The abuser may say that he or she was asking for it
  • To try and stop victim blaming try to find out why the abuser is blaming you
  • Don't agree with the abuser if he or she is saying why they hurt you
  • Don't let the victim keep on making excuses for their actions
  • If the abuser did something wrong to you but they don't want to admit it they might say something like "well you shouldn't have come here anyway"
