Question Breaking the ice in suspected abuse

Ok, here is a deal everybody. You suspect abuse in your case, but pt is not responding to your statements as "were routinely screening for domestic violence and its a lot of cases like that.. etc" or your promises such "I can assure you it will be absolutely confidential and not be released to any agencies unless youre willing to do so etc". How your break the ice? any suggestions are welcome

"You are not alone in this."

"I want you to trust me"

"I am here for you."

"I understand that you might not want to talk about this right now but I want you to know that if there is any chance that you are being abused, you are safe, the law is on your side and we can help you provide a shelter"
