Emotional Abuse – What It Is and How It Hurts Us
Part of the Hazelden Classics for Clients Collection
Author: Peg Thompson, PhD, LP
Emotional abuse can be just as damaging to its victims as physical abuse. This pamphlet defines emotional abuse, explains the forms it can take and the effects it can have, and offers suggestions on how to work toward change.
Excerpt from the Introduction:
“This pamphlet will help you learn more about the abuse you have suffered or inflicted on others. You may find that without the insulation of your addiction to blunt your suffering, you face a great deal of pain… In recovery you are claiming your right to thrive and grow, not just to survive!”
