Resources for male survivors of emotional abuse

Postby gayandprobablycrying » October 4th, 2017, 12:19 pm

Hi there!

As Paul's obnoxious DJ voice would say, I'm uhhhhhhh long time listener, first time caller. The reason why I'm posting, unbelievably, isn't actually about me or my array of mental health ailments, but for my partner.

My partner spent 11 years in an abusive marriage before meeting me. He is having trouble not only with recognizing what he went through as abuse- it was emotional abuse from his former wife- but also with processing it. To my knowledge, Paul has never done an episode specifically about spousal emotional abuse, but perhaps someone could direct me to it if he has.

I would definitely be interested in any books/articles/resources outside the podcast. He isn't a support group kind of guy, but he is about to enter into talk therapy. I'm looking for resources about emotional abuse that focus specifically on men who have been abused by women, or (even more ideally) general resources that don't even bring gender into it.

Thanks so much for your help!
