The Power and Control wheel was originally developed by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project in Duluth, Minnesota. This wheel has been adapted from the original. It gives you the ability to examine different types of abuse.
The wheel is divided into sections. Each section is given a heading of type or category of abuse. Examples of that type of abuse are listed inside that section of the wheel. At the center of the wheel is written “Power and Control”. All types of abuse are used to establish and maintain power and control in the relationship.
