Breaking Free Of Exploitive Relationships
Patrick J. Carnes, Ph. D.
Divorce, incest, child abuse, domestic violence, and kidnapping are all situations of incredible intensity where there is an exploitation of trust or power. Dr. Patrick Carnes presents an in-depth study of such relationships, how to recognize when traumatic bonding has occurred, and the steps to take to extricate oneself or a loved one from the relationship. This book has been a primary resource for therapists and their patients who are struggling with the effects of emotional pain and harm caused by exploitation from someone they trusted.
