Power & Control in Relationships
Using name calling, anger, and blame to assert power and control over a partner or spouse is emotional manipulation. This form of abuse is common in relationships. It affects people of all races, communities, religions and genders, though women are the most common victims. Left unaddressed, emotional manipulation can lead to physical, emotional, economic and sexual abuse.
