Observations

Up to now the periodicity has been five years, but it has changed to four years.Psychological violence is defined as that intentional and prolonged behavior in time, which attacks the psychological and emotional integrity of a person and his dignity as a person, without any intervention of physical contact between the people involved.It includes the behaviors of control and those of emotional abuse.
