Relationship abuse is confusing and difficult to understand whether you have experienced the abuse or know someone who has. Even more difficult is deciding how to get out of the abusive relationship, how to recover from being abused, and how to live the rest of your life without being involved in another abusive situation. This book explains the dynamics of abuse in clear and straightforward language. It includes check lists to help you decide if you are truly in an abusive relationship. It then outlines steps to take to get out of an abusive situation, how to start the recovery process, and what to consider when beginning new relationships.
