1.21 DOUBLE STANDARD -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Double Standard

MEANING: A standard that is applied strictly to one person but more leniently to another.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: A double standard is unfair. It means that the abuser, for example, can demand immediate compliance with his or her wishes but the abused person cannot.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: Since unfairness is one of the marks of an abusive person, I believe that many abusers employ double standards. People who are questioning whether they are in an abusive relationship should look for double standards or contradictory behavior as one of the key components.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: rules of conduct, principle, violation
