OASIS information is meant to be educational in nature and to help increase dialogue and discussion about this important topic. Refer to ETSU’s Student Sexual Misconduct Policy for specific ETSU policy information.
Relationship Violence is a pattern of behavior in an intimate relationship that is used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation. The patterns of behavior are in the form of repeated use of words or actions that are designed to demean, intimidate, threaten and instill fear. These behaviors can be VERBAL, EMOTIONAL, SEXUAL and/or PHYSICAL.
Is your relationship based on power and control?
Relationship violence does not discriminate. Violence does not recognize gender, ethnicity, color, socio-economic status, sexual/affectional orientation or age. If you feel you may be in a relationship of power and control, it is not your fault and you are not to blame. The ETSU Counseling Center (423-439-3333) can offer support and confidentiality as you explore your options towards staying safe and taking care of yourself. If you are in immediate danger, call ETSU Public Safety (9-4480) or 911.
