This book has great therapeutic value with analysis of often undetected manipulative patterns in destructive relationships which is both compassionate and profound. Many people will find it and eye opening reading experience and maybe even a mirror of their own lives.
The book covers emtional abuse in great detail and although the scars of this kind of abuse may not be visible they do run deep. Emotional abuse is all around us, in couples, in families, in communities and in the workplace. As the book title suggests it can be regarded as a virtual murder of the soul which society turns a blind eye to and even condones this form of abuse.
The book contains several case studies and demonstrates the psychology of the abuser as well as the target of abuse. The book is a call to recognise and understand emtional abuse and, most importantly, to overcome it. Sophisticated yet wholly accessible, this landmark account is vital reading for health professionals and victims of abuse, as well as for the concerned public.
