What Is Emotional Abuse?
Emotional abuse is a type of abuse that involves the emotional maltreatment of an individual such as a child, adolescent, adult, or elder. Emotional abuse is also termed psychological abuse or mental abuse. Emotional abuse is a form of abuse that affects the psyche (mental and emotional) without the physical abuse. You can visually see the signs of physical abuse, but, with emotional abuse, you cannot see the signs on the physical bod.
