Freeze or Fawn

Abuse 101

November 10, 2022 Sophie Season 1 Episode 1
Freeze or Fawn
Abuse 101
Show Notes

In this episode I give a quick overview of the different types of abuse and violence in a romantic relationship context. I talk about physical, material, and economical violence, and dive into the blurry world of psychological violence which is ALWAYS present, when other types of violence are there. In this episode you'll learn a bit about some forms of psychological violence (such as gaslighting, emotional manipulation, stonewalling), and I'll give you a bunch of examples. I also look at the typical cycle of the violent relationship as well as the narratives that are often so strong in the psychologically violent relationship. 
Consider this your 101 on abuse in romantic relationships!
