The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence defines psychological abuse as “the systematic perpetration of malicious and explicit nonphysical acts against an intimate partner, child, or dependent adult”. In her new book, “Emotionally Abusive Husbands and Boyfriends: Learn about Their Mentally Abusive Behaviors So You Don’t End Up Crazy!” (published by iUniverse), Sharon Walsh Cook reaches out to women involved with psychologically abusive men and shows them how to take steps to protect themselves.
“My experiences inspired me to write this book because I could not recognize the emotionally abusive behaviors that affected my emotional and physical well-being,” Cook says. “I have learned that emotional abuse involves more than just derogatory name-calling and that there are other behaviors that are not verbally communicated that are also damaging to one’s emotional health.”
Written in plain, practical language, “Emotionally Abusive Husbands and Boyfriends” explains the effects of emotional abuse and identifies, names and categorizes emotionally abusive behaviors under specific abusive personality types to make them easier to recognize. The book also provides information about other damaging nonverbal behaviors and discusses the particular danger of stalking. Finally, Cook offers tips for how victims can protect themselves and heal from emotional abuse.
