Treatment & Therapy for Emotional Abuse
Victims may be able to convince their abusers to seek treatment through couple or individual therapy. This can be harmful as the abuser can easily lie or paint themselves as the victim.
For the victim, recovery starts with escaping the negative relationship. Talk to a parent, adult, or friend you trust. Develop a safety plan to keep your abuser away. This may involve getting a restraining order.
Therapy can be highly successful for the victim as long as the victim is able to stay open and honest about their experience. Many may find it difficult to admit the abuse or hide it entirely based on the shame and guilt they developed in the toxic relationship. Therapy can help you reestablish your self-esteem and personal strength. It can help you identify healthy relationships and modify your thoughts and behaviors to cope with depression and other symptoms that have developed from emotional abuse.
