Deaf Power and Control Wheel

General Material
Published Date
January, 2006

Developed based on interviews with Deaf survivors of domestic violence, this power and control wheel highlights some of the dynamics of abuse when the abuser is a hearing individual. Domestic violence manifests itself differently in each culture based on the language and values of their people. The Deaf community is unique because it has language and cultural norms without geographic borders. Domestic violence in the Deaf community is often overlooked by hearing professionals (advocates, law enforcement, medical professionals, etc.)
