Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking account--already a national bestseller--Dr.Marie-France Hirigoyen lays bare the destructive "hidden" phenomenon of emotional abuse. She argues that while emotional abuse is not as visible as physical abuse, it is equally violent--and perhaps even more widespread. It is a crime whose aim is, she says, "a virtual murder of the soul." Illustrating her points with gripping case histories from her own therapeutic practice, plus popular examples ranging from the films of Hitchcock to the personal writings of Einstein and the works of Ovid, Kafka, and Freud, Hirigoyen analyzes the psychology of abusers and their victims as well as the dynamic between them. In the end, she offers practical advice on how to break free of abuse's vicious hold.
