emotional abuse

Emotional abuse occurs in all abusive relationships. It is a very effective tactic used by abusive partners to obtain power and control, and can cause extreme damage to the victim’s self-esteem. Commonly, emotional abuse makes the victim feel like they are responsible for the abuse. It is so damaging that many survivors of domestic violence report they would have rather “been hit” than endure the ongoing damage of emotional abuse.
