As human beings, we are created for relationships from the moment of conception. We form connections with other people for survival, nurture, and physical/emotional growth and well-being. When these basic connections do not work properly, a life-long struggle ensues that leaves a person frustrated, angry and most of all unhappy and with little understanding of what went wrong or what needs to be changed in themselves or in relationships with others.
The author explores the dynamics and the effects of being in an emotionally abusive relationship. Through a series of discussions and exercises based on the 12-step program, she helps psychologically abused women explore their childhoods, build self-esteem, and deal effectively with verbal violence.
