Format: Paperback
Having suffered many years of emotional abuse, as a child and as an adult, I was desperate to find out what the reasons behind it were so that I could put a stop to it once and for all. This book identifies the different types of emotional abuse and helped me to understand WHY people use it on others. I am now able to notice when it is happening and act immediately by speaking up. My relationships with family and friends have improved because I no longer accept put downs or being undermined in any way. As for love relationships, I feel confident that I will now be able to make good choices because I would recognise an insecure, controlling bully early on. I had spent enormous amounts of thinking time and emotional energy trying to work out the 'why's' and this book gave the answers. A good book to follow this would be 'Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway' by Susan Jeffers as it can give you the tools to feel less 'needy' and live the life you want to live.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is more about the Scars than the Healing of Emotional Abuse. Typically a chapter consists of about 20 pages of very painful reading about difficulties, with little support, followed by one page about general principles of healing. And many of the healing suggestions refer to a concept of a Christian God that some readers may not share. The best that can be said is that each chapter ends with a positive attitude, a reminder that there are other possible ways of looking at oneself than the ones learned as a child. Try instead the similarly titled book by Beverly Engel, which has lots of exercises and support, and a focus on developing better inner parents.

Format: Paperback
So many of us have grown up in a society where, if abuse is even recognized, it is not considered really damaging unless it is physical or. God forbid, sexual. Not enough emphasis has been placed on how deeply wounding emotional abuse can be on an individual. Sure, the media has sometimes identified cases where severe bullying has wreaked havoc on adolescent development. I cannot think of a book, however, that is more comprehensive on the subject of emotional abuse than HEALING THE SCARS OF EMOTIONAL ABUSE. I first saw the book for sale at an Army post exchange. Thumbing through it I later decided to purchase it through Amazon.com. I am really glad I did. It was most informative.
There are four parts in the book:
Part 1 concentrates on understanding emotional abuse from defining it to explaining why it is so common and informing the reader just how damaging it can be.
Part 2 describes types of emotional abuse identifying emotional abuse through words, actions, neglect and even a chapter entitled "Spiritual Abuse: The Bible as Bludgeon." Finding myself living in the Bible Belt of the United States I was naturally drawn to that chapter. I agreed with the author that religion should CONTRIBUTE to an individual's self esteem. The author admitted however that "unfortunately religious faith HAS been used as an abusive weapon in a relationship." This is perhaps the FIRST book I have ever read that dared to admit this. Indeed in my many years employed as a domestic violence social worker I had seen men feeling justified in emotionally, physically and/or sexually abusing their wives because they did not "submit" to them in the way they felt the Bible was directing them to do. This was so sad.

i go this as most books dealing with abuse are all sexual and i went through emotional and mental abuse. this is a brilliant book. highly recommeneded for anyone who wants to heal the scars. it is sometimes tough going but it leans towards the positive side of getting through life as oppossed to forcing 'medical' terms and conditions on you. i found it a great aid to my healing.
