Victimization." Annals of the American Psychotherapy Association 5(5): 16-18.
The author is a social worker and family therapist, as well as the founder of the Sabbath of Domestic Peace, an interfaith, interdisciplinary coalition that enlists the assistance of clergy members to address domestic violence issues. This study started in 1982 when Smullens began a journal recording the early years of emotional abuse that she identified in the histories of a number of her clients as well as in her own personal life which resulted in the development of the five cycles of behaviors that constitute emotional abuse. This study supports other research that confirms childhood emotional abuse is frequently repeated during adulthood. These findings were published in her book, Setting Yourself Free (New Horizon Press, September; 2002).
