Share Article

Repeated emotional abuse can make victims feel like they are trapped in a mental fog. In this book, author Lisa Kroulik identifies eight common tactics that emotionally abusive people use to control their partners, such as giving the silent treatment or playing the victim.

Often times, it's not just the abuser who tries to silence his partner. It is important to consider someone's motivation who won't allow an abused women to identify her experience.

The author's personal experience and ability to step beyond the abuse enables readers to recognize their own circumstances and brings hope to those who are in the midst of an abusive relationship.

In addition to dealing with overwhelming confusion, women who are in a relationship with an emotional abuser are often shamed into silence or made to doubt their own perceptions. The abusive person tells her that she is crazy while his family, friends and other supporters greatly downplay her experiences or dismiss them altogether. It's no wonder, then, that many women feel they don't have the right to "complain" when the men in their lives belittle and verbally abuse them. After all, they are not being hit and emotional abuse is very hard to prove. If the woman comes from a conservative religious background, the guilt is often intensified even more.

At the heart of every abusive man is the insatiable desire to control another person and the inability to take responsibility for his actions. This can manifest itself in many ways. Some men who would never raise a hand to a woman think nothing of not speaking to her for days, threatening suicide, projecting his own issues onto her and a whole host of other maladaptive behaviors. In this book, first-time author Lisa Kroulik identifies numerous forms of emotionally abusive behavior by using examples from her first ill-fated marriage. Readers feel an instant connection just knowing there is someone out there who understands what they are going through. The book never tells readers what to do; rather, it serves as part guide, part moral support to lead women towards their own decision.
