Whether caused by words, actions, or even indifference, emotional abuse is very common-yet often overlooked. In this helpful guide, Christian therapist Gregory Jantz examines why emotional abuse is so common and damaging. He reveals how those who have been abused by a spouse, parent, employer, or minister can overcome the past and rebuild their self-image. This new expanded edition of Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse now includes: * strategies for dealing with the verbal abuser * self-check quizzes with each chapter * keys to rebuilding relationships * letters from survivors of emotional abuse * new information on spiritual abuse * a biblical plan for healing
