Publisher's Summary

The number of people who become involved with partners who abuse them emotionally and/or who are emotionally abusive themselves is phenomenal, and yet emotional abuse is the least understood form of abuse. In this breakthrough book, Beverly Engel, one of the world's leading experts on the subject, shows us what emotional abuse is and what to do about it. Whether you suspect you are being emotionally abused, fear that you might be emotionally abusing your partner, or think that both you and your partner are emotionally abusing each other, this book is for you. 

The Emotionally Abusive Relationship will tell you how to identify emotional abuse and how to find the roots of your behavior. Combining dramatic personal stories with action steps to heal, Engel provides prescriptive strategies that will allow you and your partner to work together to stop bringing out the worst in each other and stop the abuse. By teaching those who are being emotionally abused how to help themselves and those who are being emotionally abusive how to stop abusing, The Emotionally Abusive Relationship offers the expert guidance and support you need.

A very controversial subject, very honest

I’m not sure what my thoughts are on this book, I’m about half way through and I’ve followed the material thus far. However, I would like to advise future readers to use discernment with the material written as I found it a bit triggering myself. It’s great to understand the perpetrators of domestic or emotional abuse. However, I would like to emphasize that when reading this book, I had to take some key points and leave the rest of the message behind. It’s definitely thought provoking for sure

Amazing SELF GROWTH

I cannot summarize my entire life in this review, but I can say that this book was recommended by my therapist that I’ve been seeing every week for the past six months, and I’ve loved listening to every minute of it. The accountability and self growth I’ve gone through just by actively listening to this book and facing myself through the process has been very challenging, but highly gratifying. Those I love, including my two young children will endure less abuse and more love and joy. Kudos to Beverly Engle. What an intelligent and truth spoken woman. Thank you for your help, Beverly.

Life changing

Extremely helpful in how it walks you through recognizing emotional abuse and healing yourself from it. It not only addresses the causes of how somebody allows themself to be emotionally abused and is often unable to extricate themselves front the abusive relationship, but it addresses how the abuser get there and how he/she can also make the necessary changes to stop the cycle of abuse.
