This, like many books out there has a good definition and examples of emotional abuse. I didn't find the suggestions for healing particularly helpful.

I was turned off by the religious aspects of the book but found it easy to skim over those sections.

I found this book very helpful to understand the many aspects of emotional abuse. I have seen the devastation on friends and family that can affect generations when it is ignored.

Too often we settle for a statement something like this, "That's just the way my (fill in friend or loved one's name) is. He/she is never going to change.

When choosing to read this book it was without realizing all the Christian rhetoric. I found this disconcerting. That aside, the book was full of much helpful information about emotional abuse. It also provided thought provoking exercises on the topic.
This book coincides with what has been pointed out and taught by my Christian counselor. While the book is a great resource I have found that I am better suited to learning the points as they have been presented to me in counseling.

Extremely helpful book... given to me by a cherished mentor... led to she & I co-leading two support (non-professional) groups for women over the next 4 years... hugely therapeutic and SPOT ON truthful. Would recommend it to everyone and anyone! Will forever be grateful to my precious mentor & friend!
This book was awesome...great for those who are trying to find Healing. It also deals with forgiveness...and preventing repeated history..
Very good book... helps you to put everything in perspective. Gives excellent examples of emotional abuse.
