Spyromancy
Multiple characters have their memories questioned and even overwritten, or find themselves unable to discern between their memories and reality. One particular character regularly acts the victim despite hurting others, and shifts blame accordingly. The entirety of Kinderheim, an orphanage prominent in the story that reprograms the minds of children, could apply to this as well.

Children being abused is a major aspect of the plot (though a lot of it is psychological and not shown directly) so it is hard to make a complete list.
In episode 11, a boy is physically abused by his foster father off-screen. The main character finds him to be covered in bruises, with broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder.
In episode 19, we hear a recording of a character describing that he was physically abused by his mother.
In episode 67, a character describes a childhood experience of being locked in a dark room for several days.
In episode 68, a boy is physically abused off-screen by his alcoholic father.

For those comcerned with alcoholism/relapse, Ep27 follows a recovering alcoholic who is triggered consistently throughout the episode. There are a few scenes that are pretty immersive from the point of view of an addict. He does not relapse.

As a warning, there is a scene in ep. 49 where a minor is forced to watch intercourse. While the act is "skipped", it might still be quite triggering esp. if you're not ready.

Putting it in the "assault" section, as its the one that sounded most fitting.

Certain cuts can be sudden, but they are just abrupt and not scary or loud. The show is a thriller so tension can be high and that could contribute, usually you can tell before it happens from camera angles and the soundtrack.

YES, there are, twice.

1º - In the middle of episode 48, after a inspector's vacation came up in a conversation, you'll hear music and some shots of a city are shown. After some street musicians, there is a puppet with a clown's face playing a guittar. You can just wait for the applause's sound, when it start is already safe to look.

2º - Close to the middle of the episode 56, a female character will faint and the scene fades. After it, two puppets (these two are safe to look at) appears and one of them is killed by the other. You'll hear the applause sound, that's your signal, during that sound the clown puppet is showed again. Just wait for the applauses cease completely and you'll be safe.

I hope this helps

Several characters have pretty immersive flashbacks as a result of having inflicted or witnessing violence/murder.

Nina especially has constant stimuli that trigger traumatic memories. This causes her distress and often panic attacks or fainting.

Episode 10 shows a man commit suicide.

Episode 25 and 29 feature supposed suicides, 25 shows the aftermath but 29 is only the lead up but doesn't show it or the aftermath. There is no confirmation whether they are staged or legitimate though.

No. A main antagonist dresses as a woman several times to impersonate his sister, but it's played dead serious, not as a joke or as something perverted. It's just a disguise to hide his identity while gathering information. In these scenes, he's drawn/animated to look exactly the same as his sister, not as a 'man in a dress' caricature. To the audience, there's no visual clues it's him until it's directly revealed. He seems to pass without a problem - guys think he's an attractive woman, and a character who spends more time with him goes in for a kiss but is turned down, but it's not framed as emasculating or embarassing for them.
