It really is best that you separate while he is getting counseling. Abusers are about control and you've been his victim, so things aren't about to continue. When you remind him of his abuse he considers the fact that YOU are getting the upper hand and he'll have none of that.

Talk to him and tell him you are separating for awhile while he goes through couseling because you feel you're holding him back (and mean it!) Then leave and wait to see what happens. Don't give in because all you will be doing is enabling his behavior.

No, abusive men seldom will listen to a counselor about their problem and many abusers never will see a counselor. Abusers are about control, and NO ONE is going to tell them have to run their lives. He's proven that he is not listening to his counselor (if he is even seeing one or keeping his appointments) because he's still at you.

Yes you are fooling yourself. When an abuser sees you standing up for yourself more the panic. They panic that you may leave them. So what they do is fake nice (honeymoon stage) with the hope you wont leave. They will be agreeable, contrite, non-argumentative, and pleasant. But believe me, in their mind they are mad as hell that you are challenging their authority and its just a matter of time until its payback time. Then they will be even more controlling as they feel your slipping away and the only way to reestablish their authority is to make sure they squash the thought that you can stand up for yourself. He will wait patiently. These types are very manipulative and they are all about control.

When dealing with an abusive boyfriend how can you tell the difference between standing up for yourself and using emotional blackmail or even becoming abusive yourself?

Standing up for yourself is simply saying that you will no longer tolerate abusive behavior, and backing it up by leaving it if does not stop. You cannot "deal" with abusers. If they refuse to get counseling, you need to get away from them. Untreated, abuse almost always gets worse with time.

How do you help someone who is in an emotionally abusive relationship?

Abusive relationships are some of the most difficult ones to resolve. THis type of relationship assumes that one partner is abusive and continues to be so because there is no response to the abuse. The difference here centers on "self-assurance." The abusive partner continues his or her behavior because there is no response. I can not suggest how the abused party should respond because in most instances they feel diminished. This situation can only be resolved through extended counseling, if at all.

Why was he trying not to be abusive but he was?

Men who are abusive generally have learned this from the environment in which they grew up. Some men have a short fuse and blast off with either verbally abusive words or they become physically abusive with their partner. Some men know deep inside it is wrong, but don't know how to get help and most men refuse to seek psychological counseling because it makes them feel weak and not masculine. If he refuses to get help then you have the power to get out of the abusive relationship.

Sounds like the two of you need some serious professional couples counseling. The thing with counseling couples is that it provides a mediator, someone to listen to both sides and make rational, objective, unbiased assessments. A good counselor will help both sides gain understanding into the other's ways. And counseling opens the gates to healthy communication and healing.
