I am a Mental health counselor and see a situation that is so common that there must be a name for it. What do you call it? When there is an incident between an abusive person and his or her usual victim, then the abuser calls the cops. They may or not have self harmed, but they tell a tall tale that gets the victim arrested. Often the victim doesn't refute the story to prevent the abuser from going to jail, since they already have a criminal record. The victim gets coerced by the court system to take a plea deal for domestic violence which has many oppressive effects on the victim for sometimes decades after that.
Is there a name for that situation? If not let’s create one.
I recently asked a couple ladies from the local women's shelter. They said "reactive abuse", but that's for an incident when a victim has a fight reaction and, for the moment, becomes physically violent. In all the cases I hear about, the victim was not more violent that the abuser, often not physical at all.
