The Betrayal Bond: Breaking Free of Exploitive Relationships
Exploitive relationships can create trauma bonds--chains that link a victim to someone who is dangerous to them. Divorce, employee relations, litigation, incest and child abuse, family and marital systems, domestic violence, and religious abuse are all areas of trauma bonding. All these relationships are situations of incredible intensity or importance where there is an exploitation of trust or power. This book presents a study of these relationships, why they form, who is most susceptible, and how they become so powerful. It shows how to recognize traumatic bonding and gives a checklist for examining relationships, then provides steps to safely extricate from these relationships.
