Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men
by Lundy Bancroft Author
"He doesn't mean to hurt me-he just loses control."
"He can be sweet and gentle."
"He's scared me a few times, but he never hurts the children -- he's a great father."
"He's had a really hard life..."
Women in abusive relationships tell themselves these kinds of excuses every single day. But it's important for them to see inside the minds of the angry and controlling men in their lives - and change their own lives in the process. In this incredibly important book, a counselor shows how to improve, survive, or leave an abusive relationship, with:
The early warning signs of anger, abuse, and danger.
Nine abusive personality types to watch out for.
How to tell if an abuser can change, is changing, or ever will.
The role of drugs and alcohol in his behavior.
What can be fixed and, more importantly, what can't.
And, maybe most importantly: How to leave a relationship safely.
For anyone questioning their safety at home, this book could save your relationship—or your life.
