Shedding Light on Pathological Abuse

Shedding Light on and Creating Awareness

Do you know what pathological abuse is and how it affects its victims and survivors? Dealing with these abusers or supporting their victims and survivors can be daunting. When it comes to pathological abuse, which is a marginalized form of intimate partner abuse it can be especially challenging since it is not well-known.

Understanding the Impact
