No Visible Wounds: Identifying Non-Physical Abuse of Women by Their Men

Mary Susan Miller

Publisher: Ballantine BooksFormat: Paperback


  • have sudden outbursts of anger or rage?
  • become jealous without reason?
  • prevent you from seeing friends and family?
  • deny you access to family assets such as bank accounts, credit cards, or the car?
  • control all finances and force you to account for what you spend?
  • insult you or call you derogatory names?
  • humiliate you in front of your children?
  • turn minor incidents into major arguments?

If you or someone you know can answer “yes” to the questions above, chances are you are suffering from nonphysical battering—controlling, tyrannical behavior that is just as damaging to a woman's self-esteem as a broken bone or a black eye. An experienced counselor who works with abused women, Mary Susan Miller breaks the silence that surrounds this devastating form of domestic violence. She identifies the many types of nonphysical abuse verbal, emotional, psychological, social, and economic—and explores why this outrageous treatment of women continues unabated in our society.Dr. Miller also shares the stories of many survivors who have escaped their abusive relationships. Their experiences—with law enforcement, the legal system, and the community itself—can help prepare any woman for the decision of whether to stay or leave the relationship. And if she decides to go, Dr. Miller offers sound guidelines on how to protect herself and her children, since a woman's decision to leave is usually the time she is in the most danger from her abuser.Finally, Dr. Miller inspires hope: You can break free of the nightmare of nonphysical battering and heal, once again engaging in a life of integrity, dignity, and peace.
