Emotional abuse is a form of mental abuse that occurs when one person subjects another one to harmful, degrading, belittling, and derogatory words and or actions.
Dealing with emotional abuse is really difficult to handle on your own, however, it is not impossible. Those who show signs of abuse, should definitely reach out for guidance.
Untreated emotional abuse can lead to emotional trauma, anxiety disorder, depression and or PTSD.
NOT ALL SIGNS ARE VISIBLE
With emotional abuse, it is common to not see bruising, scars, bumps or other wounds. Paying close attention to changes in behavior is key because the damage is just as bad as physical abuse.
At Star point Counseling center, our goal is to get to the root of the maltreatment and to help the victim identify unhealthy mindsets and behaviors. For example, making excuses for the abuser.
