Silent Abuse, Control: Freddie Power, Sharon Stafford
Workplace Substance Abuse - an underestimated and silent epidemic?: T. Gilg, V. Happel, J. Lagois, H. Laurell, A. Manns
Dara Dietz begins her life story with a question: ´´How does one go from being a victim to a victor?´´ As a very young child, then through adolescence, she found herself trapped in a family environment as well as in a social religious community where she was neglected, betrayed, and molested. She easily could have lost her way. She could have become an angry person, blaming others for all her misfortune and life circumstance. It would be easy to understand her emotion. Yet, her present life is one of counting her blessings and helping others heal naturally. What changed the direction of Dara´s life journey? She chose to believe and travel with the power of love, God´s love - a love that at first was not always easy to understand, trust, or accept. As her story reveals, it was Divinely life-transforming when she welcomed this unconditional love into her heart. Dara´s life lessons are about choices and how great trials can be great teachers; how the biggest hurts can be the biggest gifts. It is one´s choice how to learn the lesson. Her story illustrates how her spiritual courage enabled her to make choices that allowed for acceptance, forgiveness, and to be in the flow of Whatever Good May Come. This inspiring audiobook is a must-listen for those who have been in or are now experiencing a situation and feelings where all hope may seem lost. It is an audiobook for people who love such individuals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: April M Barrow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/027818/bk_acx0_027818_sample.mp3.

Silent Cry:The True Story of Abuse and Betrayal of an NFL Wife Zondervan. US open market-Ausgabe Dorothy J. Newton
And the Angels Are Silent, by Yoseph Cohen Elran XVI. ´´Ezekiel went. Ezekiel is no longer here. Who can give me back the moment to change it? Those who can, allow me to give him one last hug and tell him how much I loved him. I´ve never said those words to him. But nothing can bring him back. A single moment. A touch. A liberating sigh just to get to the end of longing.´´ This is the story of Ezra, a child who tells the story of how his family, together with all the Jews of Baghdad, experienced riots and abuse, and the story of his younger brother, who was active in the Zionist underground. And the Angels Are Silent is a heroic chapter in the history of the Zionist struggle in the revival of the country. This fascinating, creative, and mesmerizing tale penetrates the individual soul and the souls of the nation and raises the question of divine intervention in human life.

Pathological mind games. Covert and overt put-downs. Triangulation. Gaslighting. Projection. These are the manipulative tactics survivors of malignant narcissists are unfortunately all too familiar with. As victims of silent crimes where the perpetrators are rarely held accountable, survivors of narcissistic abuse have lived in a war zone of epic proportions, enduring an abuse cycle of love-bombing and devaluation - psychological violence on steroids. From how to heal our addiction to the narcissist to how to recognize a covert narcissist, Shahida Arabi´s articles on narcissistic abuse have gained renown as some of the most accurate and in-depth depictions of this terrifying trauma, resonating with millions of survivors all over the world and receiving endorsements from numerous mental health professionals. In this essay compilation, listeners can enjoy some of her most popular articles as well as new thought pieces on narcissistic abuse: what therapists have to say about malignant narcissists and how children of narcissistic parents can become trapped in the trauma repetition cycle. Survivors are offered new insights on what it means to be both a survivor and a thriver of covert manipulation and trauma. Power teaches us that it is important to not only understand the tactics of toxic personalities but also to recognize and combat the effects of narcissistic abuse; it guides the survivor to learning, growing, healing and most importantly of all - owning their agency to rebuild their lives and transform their powerlessness into victory. 1.

An urgent and timely memoir exploring the reality of childhood sexual abuse, a scourge on too many neighborhoods, often hiding in plain sight. Millions of victims remain silent, buried under the weight of their own guilt, shame, and addiction. Breaking the Ruhls will resonate deeply with many who have experienced similar trauma, boundary violations, and abuse within the family, and struggle with the emotional and psychological effect. Ruhl mines his own experiences with sexual confusion, shame, PTSD, addiction and recovery, marital issues, career struggles, and therapeutic breakthroughs, while offering vindication on a range of issues and demonstrating it is possible to heal and thrive. 93 percent of juvenile sexual assault victims knew their perpetrators. For 80 percent of those, that perpetrator was a parent. This book shines a spotlight on the incessant plague of sexual abuse and help others shed the shame that sexual abuse survivors unfairly carry. Larry Ruhl serves as a board member for Taking Back Ourselves, which facilitates weekends of recovery for survivors of sexual abuse, and is a registered speaker with RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network). He previously served as a board member at Male Survivor, a leading organization in the fight to improve the resources and support available to male survivors of all forms of sexual abuse. Today he takes meetings into addiction treatment centers as a way to shed shame and draw the parallels between addiction and sexual abuse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Haynes.

I am the narcissist. I have many secrets. Some you will find out about. Some you will not find out about. I will only let you in on the ones that I think will help me to control you and make you obey me unquestioningly. To be in this union, I must command your undying loyalty. Anything less than that will not be acceptable. If you find out about one of my secrets that you weren’t meant to find out, I will punish you via abuse or silent treatment so that you will learn to stop snooping on me. If you continue to snoop or to call me out to others on my malicious behavior, I will file lawsuits, gag orders, restraining orders and more to get you to shut your mouth. If you keep telling my secrets, I might just kill you. Then, you will be one of my secrets, too. I will tell the police and the FBI that I wasn’t involved in your convenient death or your murder. I will lie to your family’s face at the funeral. I will lie on the news to the public, faking tears and concern. After all, you deserved it. I won’t face accountability just because you say so. I don’t feel like I owe you or anyone else anything. In fact, you are the one denying me the fuel that I want. It was your fault. You promised to give me whatever I wanted when we first got together, remember? I took that promise literally, and then I fell out of your favors due to my lies, my cheating, my silent treatments, and more. I am a hedonist - a pleasure seeker. I break the law as the day is long. It is my right to do so as I have a sense of entitlement of epic proportions. I will get away with it the way I learned to get away with everything as a child. I was taught by the best, after all. My parents were narcissists, too. I will laugh all the while. You will be attracted to the mysteriousness of me. I am the man who tells you a little, but withholds a lot. You might wonder why it is that I don’t talk about myself all of the time. You may wonder why I don’t drone ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs.
