Share Article

Victims of emotional abuse often assume that they are the problem because abusers use an arsenal of tricks to keep them confused, scared and dependent. Learning to identify these tactics is the first step toward changing or ending an unsatisfying personal relationship.

Kroulik's gift to her readers.

Always remember that knowledge is power. And with that, let me introduce you to the emotionally abusive partner's bag of tricks.

Crushing anxiety. Depression. Sleep disturbances. These are just some of the everyday realities experienced by women in a relationship with an emotionally abusive partner. Author and emotional abuse expert, Lisa Kroulik, identifies eight common tactics used by emotionally abusive men to exert control over their partners in her new book "Emotional Assault: Recognizing the Abusive Partner's Bag of Tricks." The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions at Amazon. Barnes and Noble, Abe Books and several other online book retailers also carry the print edition.

Kroulik experienced all of the behaviors she describes during her first marriage to a man with narcissistic personality disorder. A lifelong writer, she wrote about her experiences online as a means of healing. Her readers expressed admiration for her ability to name their experiences in simple ways that they could relate to. As one reader commented on the article "Poor Me! How Emotional Abusers Play the Victim to Manipulate You": Let me thank you from the bottom of my heart and my psyche for posting such wonderful articles that aren't full of psycho-babble." Kroulik's articles, and later her book, are both compassionate and empowering to women who know there is something deeply wrong with the way their partner is treating them.

Even in a clearly unhealthy relationship, making the decision to move on is never an easy one. Kroulik walks readers through the types of reactions they can expect from others as well as a range of emotions they might feel when ending an abusive relationship. It is clear that she speaks from experience when discussing the failings of the Christian church to adequately support women in abusive marriages. However, the book is inclusive of all women, not just those from conservative Christian backgrounds.
