    399 - Post separation abuse

    399 - Post separation abuse

    In this week's episode, we're diving into the often overlooked topic of post-separation abuse. While it's not widely discussed, it's unfortunately experienced by many.
    We start by exploring the correlation between high-conflict personalities and abuse, shedding light on this important connection. I also share eight common ways that post-separation abuse can manifest itself, as well as four steps to prepare for safety and six other methods to help you manage the situation.
    Post-separation abuse, often emotional and psychological in nature, can leave victims feeling confused, anxious, and unable to trust themselves. Research indicates that emotional abuse can be more psychologically damaging than physical abuse. If you're finding yourself in fight, flight, or freeze mode, you're not alone. Stay tuned as we delve deeper into this crucial topic.
