Different forms of psychological abuse, perceptions, causes and effect of psychological abuse were discussed. The main objective of the study is to determine the perception of students on the cause and effect of psychological abuse. Two hypotheses were raised and analysed, and the first was concluded that, there was no significant difference between male and female students perception on the causes of psychological abuse, the second hypothesis also conclude that there was no significant difference between male and female students' perception on the effect of psychological abuse. It was revealed that students of senior secondary school in Borno State perceived causes of psychological abuse to be late coming, poor performance and the use of vulgar language by the teachers. It was therefore recommended that awareness programme such as workshops, seminars and conferences should be conducted by the stakeholders, for teachers, parents and students to enlighten them on dimensions of psychological abuses within the school context and home, and the effect of psychological abuse on students. School administrators should also set up body to check the prevalence of psychological abuse and possible control measures.
