Up to now the periodicity was five years, but it has changed to four years. Psychological violence is defined as that intentional and prolonged conduct 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 persons involved. It includes the behaviors of control and those of emotional abuse. The psychological violence of control is that relative to the behaviors of control (to prevent seeing friends or the family, to insist on knowing where the woman is at every moment, to get angry if the woman talks with another man or woman, to ignore him and to treat him with indifference, etc.).
