    The number of people who become involved with partners who abuse them emotionally and/or who are emotionally abusive themselves is phenomenal, and yet emotional abuse is the least understood form of abuse. In this breakthrough book, Beverly Engel shows us what it is and what to do about it. Whether you suspect you are being emotionally abused, fear that you might be emotionally abusing your partner, or think that both you and your partner are emotionally abusing each other, this book is for you.

    Would you listen to The Emotionally Abusive Relationship: How to Stop Being Abused and How to Stop Abusing again? Why?

    I may refer to it. I'm not sure if I'd like to listen to it over again. It's somewhat difficult to hear and it's very emotionally draining to actively try to recognize and change your behaviors.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Emotionally Abusive Relationship: How to Stop Being Abused and How to Stop Abusing?

    I'm not sure. The entire thing had very profound moments.


    Have you listened to any of Deanna Hurst’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. However, I absolutely loved her voice narrating this. She did a wonderful job.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Emotionally Abusive Relationship: How to Stop Being Abused and How to Stop Abusing?

    I will apply this to my relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    I already knew that I had an abusive past. I am a Psychology major and I've been very introspective. I also knew that I was in a constant battle of emotional abuse in my current relationship. However, I knew I wasn't innocent, and I knew he wasn't either. We played off of each other. When one person was emotionally abusive, the other person would just emotionally abuse them later. We both came from parents that emotionally abused us. After reading this book, I realized that we were both reenacting our pasts in an attempt to solve them and end up with a better outcome. I have some similarities with his mother and he has some similarities with my father. However, he doesn't see it this way.

    That's why I needed to find this book, so I could attempt to discover ways to change my patterns, and hopefully, in turn, change his as well. It's only been a couple days, but I already notice a difference in how I perceive my feelings and how he reacts to my words. I express myself by saying how I actually FEEL instead of blaming and threatening to leave. When he insults or degrades me, I point it out assertively but not painstakingly and he admits to it, and stops. I have a lot of hope that our relationship will benefit from this. I know we can get past our communication challenges. It was an amazing book.
