Identifying Spiritual Abuse

Many years ago when I first began my journey of healing from the spiritual abuse of my youth, there was a book that impacted me tremendously. I just discovered that this book is available to read online, free of charge. So I am including a link here to Churches That Abuse, by Ronald M. Enroth.

Identifying Abuse and Finding Healing

Today I have added two articles to the site. They are both long, so I have broken them down into segments. Both are by the same author, Joseph M Carver, Ph.D., Psychologist.

The first article is titled “The Loser:” Warning Signs You’re Dating A Loser and is in four parts. While it was originally written for dating couples, it really applies to any relationship. So check out this series at Relationship Warning Signs.

The second article is considerably longer — 12 segments! — and you’ll probably want to take it in bites. It is titled Emotional Memory Management: Positive Control Over Your Memory. This article takes an in-depth look at how memories are made and stored, how our brains retrieve and use them — sometimes against us — and how we can change the way our memories affect our daily lives. It is an article that can literally change your life if you take the time and effort to work on yourself as the author describes. You can find this series at Healing Emotional Memories Series.
