Abuse of power occurs where the protagonist has control of the contingencies in a situation (those in power, wether through authority,coercion, dominance or leadership etc), and because of the lack of countercontrol, acts in ways which are damaging to the other.

Abuse is a general term for the use or treatment of something (person, thing, idea, etc.) that causes some kind of harm (to the abused person or thing, to the abusers themselves, or to someone else) or is unlawful or wrongful. Its close synonyms are mistreatment and maltreatment. The word "misuse" has a more distant meaning of incorrect, uneducated use, not necessary harmful.

Psychologists have studied abuse in a wide variety of contexts.
