What Is Emotional Abuse?

Emotional abuse, also known as psychological abuse, consists of verbal abuse, controlling behavior, and jealous behavior. Emotional abuse, which is often present in generally abusive relationships between intimate partners, can involve dominant actions, intimidation, destruction of property, threats of harm, unpredictable actions, and forced isolation from friends and family. Psychological abusers can be both men and women – people who often control and intimidate while also blaming the victim.
