9780060923693: When Love Goes Wrong: What to Do When You Can't Do Anything Right

Millions of women each year find themselves in relationships with controlling or abusive partners and don't know what to do, or even what's wrong. A woman may feel anxious, inadequate, intimidated -- and as if she is walking on tiptoe. And she may find herself trying harder and harder to make things right without ever being successful. Ann Jones and Susan Schechter bring together their more than fifteen years of experience working with women in abusive relationships to offer an eyeopening new analysis of controlling partners and a wealth of empowering information for women who want to change their lives for the better. Full of moving first-person stories, When Love Goes Wrong shows women what their options are in or out of the relationship, provides concrete guidance on finding safety and support for themselves and their children, and includes a comprehensive list of agencies offering information or assistance.

From Publishers Weekly:

Abusive relationships are more common than many women think, charge Jones ( Women Who Kill ) and Schechter ( Women and Male Violence ). They argue that even men who have never been physically violent toward their partners may be abusers. Constant criticism, for example, is a nonphysical method of control that, if thwarted, may escalate into violence. Therefore, the authors state, a woman married to a manipulative or overly critical man is in a potentially dangerous situation and should make plans to prevent harm to herself and her children. The book's first half, which includes case histories, provides guidelines to help women determine if they are in an abusive relationship. The second section gives advice on how to escape and where to find emergency help, legal services and financial support systems. Of great importance for abused women and professionals who counsel them. Author tour.
