    The Emotionally Abused Woman

    If you feel unfairly criticized, controlled by others, or are afraid of being lonely, you could be suffering from emotional abuse. Now there is help in this compassionate sourcebook. Beverly Engel, a marriage, family, and child therapist, guides you through a step-by-step recovery process to help you heal the damage done in the past.

    With the insight and sensible, compassionate guidance which have distinguished her previous books A RIGHT TO INNOCENCE and DIVORCING A PARENT, Engel addresses one of the biggest segments of the recovery audience–and one of its most pressing issues: the emotional abuse of women by those they work with, live with, and love.

    A sensible book, full of insight and hope.

    The California Therapist
    I like this book. It is written for the ‘self-help’ market, and I plan to recommend it to clients who are working through the multi-dimensional problems of emotional abuse. The book is readable and offers practical insights on how to change. Beverly writes from both the personal and clinical perspective. She explains concepts with easy to understand, practical illustrations.
