Abuse is a complicated term. It includes a wide range of controlling, devaluing, or intimidating behaviors. These can be emotional and, in some cases, physically, damaging to the victim.
The thing is, a lot of abusive men don’t seem like abusers; they can be charismatic, kind, and fun to be around. This makes it hard for some women to recognize when they’re being mistreated.
In this booklet, we’ll take a deep dive into the psychology of the abusive man. You’ll learn how his abusive thinking works and where it comes from. And you’ll learn to identify the early warning signs of abuse.
