Emotional Abuse: The Trauma and the Treatment

Author(s): Marti Tamm Loring

Emotional & Verbal Abuse

This is a treatment model for the subtle but devastating impact of the pervasive, chronic, and ongoing process in which one individual systematically diminishes and destroys the inner self of another.

Marti Tamm Loring uses her own research and clinical work with emotionally abused women to explore the components of both overt and covert abuse and to map out for mental health practitioners a new model for its treatment.
