Identifying emotional abuse - are you a victim?
In order to avoid getting stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship, you'll first need to identify the signs of emotional abuse. This book will help you see the red flags, and to get out of potential relationships where emotional abuse is at play.
Most people only think of the physical aspects of abuse, but emotional abuse can be just as painful. Emotional abuse, or psychological abuse, is a little more subtle and can be harder to detect. All of us can fall victim to it in our relationships, and its signs may be clouded by other emotions, particularly if these relationships are with people we love and care for genuinely.

If you are being mistreated and you find yourself believing that you deserve all of it, then you are likely a victim of emotional abuse. Abusers like to degrade their partner's self-image and self-worth.

Yes, you never know who may need help getting out of an abusive relationship or seeing the signs in someone they care about.
I am unaware of other books like this.
There weren't any scenes, but I appreciated the part that described exactly what emotional abuse is, so now I can recognize it if I need to.
I will be able to notice when certain behaviors aren't right and may be a sign of a problem in a relationship, especially in terms of the people around me. That means I will be able to help them if they need help.
This book has information that everyone should know. Even if you aren't in an abusive relationship, it may come up at some point, because it doesn't just happen in romantic relationships.
What really stuck with me about this was the focus on staying out of an abusive relationship by recognizing it early.
So much literature on this focuses on how to get out once you're already in a bad relationship. This actually helps you recognize the warning signs so you can avoid one in the first place.
Although the narration was difficult to listen to, I thought this was great information. I would recommend it to someone curious if they're in the early stages of abuse or in the thick of it. It was good to review, especially having already studied it in depth while going through it with various partners previously and wanting a quick refresher. The details of different types of emotional and psychological abuse was very helpful.
