FORT MILL, S.C. (PRWEB) November 08, 2011
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, only about 50 percent of domestic abuse cases are reported. In their new book Silent Abuse, Control (published by AuthorHouse), authors Freddie Power and Sharon Stafford offers these victims a path toward a victimizer-free life.
Controlling behavior is a very real form of abuse that verbally, mentally, and psychologically batters a person into a state of defeat, virtually erasing any self-esteem or confidence. Because it is the most undetectable, common and misunderstood form of abuse, its affects are devastating.
The first step in dealing with this abuse is to recognize it in every form it takes. Power and Stafford offer examples through relatable, attention grabbing stories based on facts, told from the point of view of people who have experienced this specific type of abuse. These personal stories expose the common behavior and characteristics of controlling abusers. Abuse doesn’t care who you are, what your age, ethnicity or social class is; it doesn’t discriminate. It is important to understand that abuse in any form is never deserved or acceptable.
Inspiring stories offer hope and will leave readers feeling encouraged through the true accounts of people who have emerged from a dark pit of despair as they are guided to the source of needed strength to prevail. Silent Abuse, Control will make readers feel encouraged knowing that there is a very real possibility of peace and happiness. A life without control and verbal abuse is possible and accessible!
