Though many treat it is as such, emotional abuse is not a relational problem. It is a heart problem, stemming from the abusive person’s un-Christlike drive to attain and maintain dominance over a spouse. How should we think about and engage those who oppress their spouses? How should we understand, care for and counsel those whose personhood is under constant attack? Where can the church help? This seminar, utilizing a biblical conceptualization, will seek to answer those questions by focusing on marriages where one spouse wounds another in order to stay in control.
