Emotional Abuse Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Johnson City, TN

Emotional abuse is the persistent manipulation of the victim’s emotions. The University of Illinois counseling center, defines it as any kind of violence that is emotional rather than physical in nature. There are numerous definitions for psychological torment but it all comes down to the same thing. The damaging types of psychological abuse can come in two forms: blatant and subtle. Either of these can have dire consequences in the way that they can damage the abused one’s mental state of mind. Often, emotional abuse therapy is required to help redress any emotional imbalance.
Blatant abuse includes things like:

  • Verbal abuse
  • Constant criticism

The more subtle tactics will include such things as:

  • Intimidation
  • Devious manipulation
  • Refusal to ever be satisfied

Emotional abuse takes on various forms with the three general patterns of abusive behavior being:

  • Aggressing
  • Denying
  • Minimizing

The Victims Dilemma

The victims of psychological abuse and mental violence often need emotional abuse therapy. Sometimes this is the only way for them to overcome the emotional damage. For some victims, their mental state leaves them emotionally drained just by going about everyday business. This is no way to live, and in many cases life can get a lot better once the victim seeks help. Without having sound emotional balance and stability in one’s life, living is hard work. It becomes an effort just to achieve even the smallest of tasks.
