Coercive Relationships: Find the Answers You Seek

  • Self-Help


Jennifer Parker, MSSW wrote Coercive Relationships: Find the Answers You Seek to provide a beacon for survivors of partner abuse. The book also appeals to family, friends, and professionals who assist them. Her non-judgmental, empathic voice offers knowledge gleaned from years of working alongside survivors to empower them. Her writing is seasoned with information regarding trauma and recovery. Each chapter contains survivor examples that illustrate coercive control and suggestions for self-discovery and recovery. The book focuses on the answers to frequent questions: • Am I being abused? • Why do they hurt me? • Why do I feel so crazy? • Why do they believe they should control us? • How do I recognize abuse of power? • What can I change? • How do I move forward?
