EMOTIONAL ABUSE- WHAT DOES IT MEAN, HOW DOES IT MATTER?
If your spouse says something to hurt your feelings, is that emotional abuse? It’s a phrase we hear often, but rarely hear exactly what it means. And if someone says something nasty, why can’t we just suck it up and let it slide off our backs? After all, there are no broken bones or black eyes involved in emotional slights. Or is it that simple?
Anna Marie Askin-Evans is a resident in marriage and family therapy and helps people deal with a variety of painful and traumatic events that do more than hurt; they can rip away value and cause pain that never goes away. She will help us define emotional abuse, recognize it, and share approaches to living with it and moving past it.
Join us as we talk about core hurts and vulnerabilities, and the words that can damage every bit as much as the proverbial sticks and stones.
