First I want to congratulate you for asking this question. Few people with this problem actually recognise it. We spend so much time hearing from people who have been abused, but hear little from the people who have difficulty restraining their emotions. For that reason I have had difficulty finding resources for you. There must be something out there!

The usual route through the medical profession would be a referral to a psychiatrist, who may provide medications to reduce mood swings. They may provide councelling directly, but would be more likely to refer you to a councellor. A councellor would probably spent time with you on a one-to-one basis, until you feel confortable dealing with the situation. Finally, they may be able to refer you to a group session with other people with similar problems. This may be the most effective approach because you will be able relate well to other people who have experienced the same emotions.

Look on the back of your insurance card. Many have a special 1-800 number (like an anonymous hotline) to request help with "behavioral services" or "psychiatric help". Usually, if you call these numbers they put you in touch with a councellor who can talk about your options.

If someone is abusing you over the phone then the first thing you can do is ask them to stop the abuse. If they will not stop the abuse then you can warn them you will stop the call. If that will stop the abuse then disconnect the abuser and tell your supervisor who was the person who was abusing you.

Will an emotional and verbal abuser ever stop abusing even in a new relationship?

Abuse stems from the abuser, not from the relationship - so a change of partner won't in itself change much (or anything). An abuser needs appropriate counselling or therapy to deal with the problem. The first step of course is for him or her to acknowledge that there is a problem and that needs attending to. I hope this is some help. All the best - Joncey

How do you get your dad to stop abusing you physically emotionally and mentally?

It's not up to you to stop your father from abusing you physically and emotionally. His abusive behaviour is not about you; it is not a reflection of your character. It is solely about his own mental and emotional state. Your duty is to get away from the abuser, to find a safe haven, and to report him to the authorities. Let the courts and the healthcare system deal with your father. It's not your fault, nor your responsibility. Your job is to get out of there alive.

Can you say to an abuser that you love him?

Can an abuser stop the abuse?

With therapy, yes. It takes dedication and a real desire to stop the abuse.AnswerYes, but they do not want to. In their minds, they love control. With abusing a person comes control with all its benefits. These types doubt their masculinity and control makes them feel in charge and powerfull. The abuser has everyone at his mercy, he gets things his way. For example, an abuser can skip you birthday sometimes without any real conflict. The victim is worn down and afraid to speak up and if she does it gets shoved down her throat! The abuser therefore, does not have to bother with anything that requires getting off the couch.

The power relationship between the abuser and the victim?

The victim has no power or they would not be abused. The abuser always has the control. Children and the elderly are victimized often in society as well as men and women. The abuser will start out by abusing psychologically and 'put down' their victim until they leave their victim confused with no self confidence. The abuser may threaten to leave their victim (this is terrifying to the elderly); leave the wife and take the children; talk of killing the victim or anyone that is close to them. The abuser often isolates their victim so their victim has no family or friends to turn too and they have to suffer in silence and depend on their abuser.
