Aggressors exist in all cultures and societies. Often they are to be found in your environment of your family, leisure, friends, sport, and school as well as religious, medical or social active environment. In the beginning victims often percept their contact with an aggressor as empathizing, supporting and helpful. Only after some time the victim percepts the contact as more and more powerful and humiliating. Victims can be forced to keep quiet by their aggressors. Child abuse can have a short time impact, but unfortunately most likely live long impacts on victims.
