This week's topic is one that has been repeatedly requested by our members, quite possibly because it is not only so prominent a phenomenon, but also such an overlooked and minimized form of abuse.

Emotional abuse.Collapse )

This week's questions:
  • How has emotional abuse affected you?
  • What particular forms of emotional abuse were most difficult for you to recognize as abuse?
  • How does the way you view/treat/talk to yourself compare to the way your emotional abusers view(ed)/treat(ed)/talk(ed) to you?
  • What further questions do you have or what further areas of emotional abuse would you like help with?

Holidays are a stressful time of year for many people, but can be especially taxing on survivors of trauma and abuse. With Thanksgiving coming up in the States this week and Christmas around the corner, I thought it might be time to address our holiday concerns. It was definitely a popular topic in the TSQ poll from last week!
  • How do you feel about holidays in general?  Are some more or less stressful than others?
  • How does your trauma history play into your opinion/feelings about/experiences with holidays?
  • What are your plans for the upcoming winter season in regards to holidays?
  • What, if any, positive coping methods or changes have you made with regard to holidays that have really helped you?
