Comments from social worker (paraphrased): It's good, there's no reason it can't be in our library. I didn't like 1. that the author asserts that every woman who has been in an abusive relationship was abused in her past/childhood, because that's not necessarily true, and 2. that the author uses her own experience, and women who have had similar experiences to her own, as a kind of "The Way" abuse works/happens, because other people have different experiences. So it's not my preferred book on the subject, but there are no problems serious enough to keep it out of the collection and there is some useful stuff in here too.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"When most people hear the word 'abuse', they naturally conjure up images of broken bones, black eyes, and bruises. But in truth, physical violence comprises the vast minority of abusive behaviors in any relationship. The overwhelming types of abuses are those that are difficult to recognize: verbal, emotional, psychological, financial, and spiritual. Because no outward signs of mistreatment exist, these types of abuses usually go unnoticed, especially by the woman experiencing them. In particular, abusive comments often lead a woman in any unhealthy relationship to distrust her own reality and good sense. [This book] exposes the truth about these destructive behaviors and also reveals the red flags of a potentially abusive relationship. Women can explore their own background information to understand what led them to these men, the shocking costs that non-physically threatening relationships have on every part of their life, and ways in which they can make changes toward a more positive, healthy, and rewarding future."--Book jacket.… (more)
