Emotional Abuse

"Emotional abuse is a form of manipulation used to maintain control in a relationship. This type of abuse may include verbal attacks, humiliation, intimidation, bullying, and isolation. It can cause deep emotional harm that may last for years. When the subject of emotional abuse comes up, a common question is, “Why don’t people experiencing abuse seek help?” This question has many answers. A person who emotionally abuses others may isolate their victims from friends, family, and health care providers. Without support, a victim can become dependent on the abuser for affection and safety. In some cases, an individual is under surveillance and cannot communicate openly. The person experiencing abuse may fear what will happen if they tell the truth. Abuse often escalates when a victim tries to leave. The person may not know how to leave safely. Some people in an abusive relationship are convinced their situation is hopeless. They may feel no one will believe their story, especially if they are from a marginalized community. Others may wish to avoid the stigma that may come with talking about abuse. Reaching out for help can take a lot of bravery. But help is available. For many people, meeting with a therapist or counselor is the first step toward positive change."
