Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource to help a person recognize the difference between criticism and emotional & verbal abuse. Criticism is normally given IN LOVE, there is an enormous difference between criticism & abuse. This book will also help anyone who was previously in an abusive relationship to be able to recognize some of the common traits all emotional abusers and potential emotional abusers exhibit and steer clear of another abusive relationship. I even found instances in my own life where I was the one doing the controlling through emotional abuse & have been able to discontinue that behavior through self examination & prayer. Excellent book!

I've been reading a lot of self-help books, but have rarely been so moved to recommend them to others. I found this one uncommonly wise, kind, and helpful and sensible--you come away
with a grounded, helped feeling...hopeful, too. I'm not crazy about the word "empowering," but this book is empowering, I think. If you're looking for help in this area, this book is worth reading. (I know Bill Blass used to say in those magazine perfume ads that he didn't like people (women) who thought they could be helped by self-help books--remember?--but I don't care! This is a truly good one!) If you are in pain and you suspect past emotional abuse might be a factor contributing to it, please check this book out. You might even be moved to pass it on to friends--I am already plotting to purchase additional copies!

This book is excellent. I put into words my feelings and helped organize the behaviors of an emotional abuser. I have read serval books on this topic and this one is well written and is easy to follow. It also doesnt always assume the abuser is a man which is seen in so many books of this type. Highly recommended and helpful to an abuser who is willing to honestly look at her or his life and the victims of emotional abuse as well.It also gives some suggestions on how to proceed in the healing process.

Format: Paperback
I finally decided to invest in a book about emotional abuse after realizing that issues from a past "bad relationship" just weren't going to go away on their own. With its comforting words and frequent anecdotes,"Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse" put many of my old experiences in perspective. I was able to see the "big picture" of how emotional abuse had permeated many aspects of my life, and I was finally able to acknowledge what a lasting effect it had on me. I was also surprised to see how many other people I recognized in the descriptions of emotional abusers and their techniques -- it was an eye-opener. If you have been the victim of emotional abuse (or aren't sure if you have been), you will find this book supportive, if you are an abuser you may find insight into why you abuse, and if you are just an interested reader you may be surprised by how this book changes your perspective on your co-workers, friends, and family. It really is fascinating.

Dr. Jantz is a genius when it comes to understanding emotional abuse and how it affects people. He explains why emotional abuse is so common and how these abuses occur. The book is both insightful and affirming, and provides helps for recognizing and healing emotional abuse. I must read!
