Author Lisa Kroulik Identifies Numerous Psychological Mind Games Abusers Use in New Book “Emotional Assault: Recognizing an Abusive Partner’s Bag of Tricks.”


Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

A lifelong writer, Lisa Kroulik began writing articles about her experiences with her emotionally abusive first husband as a way to heal after their divorce. She had no way of knowing that her articles would be read over 100,000 times a year and speak directly to the heart of so many women in the same position. The encouraging feedback she received prompted Kroulik to bring her articles together in a book to act as a guide for confused, hurting women wondering what in the world to do about their own unhealthy relationships.

The beauty of Kroulik’s new book is that she is not a therapist and makes no pretense of having all the answers. She simply shares her own experiences when identifying common ways that abusive partners behave, such as prolonged silent treatments or playing the victim. Many readers of Kroulik’s articles and book have said that her words helped them finally name abusive behavior by their partners and gave them the courage to no longer allow it. Whether women in troubled relationships stay with their partner or not, this book provides eye-opening insight into the tactics abusive people use in an attempt to maintain control.

Lisa Kroulik’s New Book “Emotional Assault” Second Only to Melody Beatty’s “Codependent No More” in Codependency Category for Amazon Kindle


Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

This book is borne out of experience. For years, the author didn’t understand why she was on pins and needles, trying desperately to please her husband. She was taught to submit to him, to put him first, to do all of the things women are taught to do in the Christian church. While she did this, her husband made her jump through higher and higher hoops and played a barrage of emotional tricks on her to keep her in her place.

The bag of tricks points to an insecure person who only cares about himself and his image. Everything he does is designed to protect his own ego and his partner is only there to enhance his image and ego.

What’s even worse is this narcissistic person appears on the surface to be “such a nice guy” to outsiders. They are oftentimes charming, sociable, reasonable and jolly when away from home, behaving like attentive spouses and charming partners in front of others.

The effect of this is to isolate the victim even further. Not only is she to blame for everything that goes wrong in the narcissistic person’s life, she is also to blame for asserting her own needs and for the relationship failing.

Perhaps the most lasting insight of all is that the narcissistic person is incapable of truly loving another person. He is only in love with his control of his partner.

There are basically two things women in emotionally abusive relationship can do: One is to accept the limitations of this personality and call him out every time a trick is played. If the person has even a smidgen of conscience (i.e. not 100% narcissistic) this might work. The abused spouse needs to let him know she won’t tolerate blame, denigration, the silent treatment and other forms of emotional control. The other option is for the victim to leave, knowing the consequences will be a concerted effort of the narcissistic individual to pool every family and mutual friend against her.

The author doesn’t tell readers what to do. This book is a quick read and makes people aware of the problems so they can deal with them head on.
