Created by a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 25 years of clinical expertise, “Healing From Abusive Relationships” guides the participant on a journey of recovery and renewal from a physically, emotionally, or financially abusive relationship.

Ms. Somberg teaches her students Lenore Walker’s Cycle of Violence, the 10 Tools Of The Trade that abusers use to snare their prey, plus how a person’s psychological strengths and “super traits” get manipulated and used against them in these toxic and confusing relationships.Spread over 15 easy-to-follow mini-lectures, “Healing From Abusive Relationships” teaches you insightful and practical methods for managing your own confusing emotions and reaction patterns endemic to abuse. You will understand an abuser’s behavior and manipulations more clearly and discern why we can be duped so easily. There are even tips for parenting your children who may have been alienated, and methods for managing friends and family who have become “flying monkeys” who abuse you by proxy.Ms. Somberg’s experience, wisdom, and chatty/upbeat demeanor will inspire you. She provides useful tools to tackle the confusion, increasing self-blame and isolation, and trauma that keeps survivors dependent and emotionally drained. You need not rely any longer on the controlling and clever machinations of an abuser who exploits the weaknesses they created. You can, instead, transform yourself by implementing simple strategies to rebuild your emotional, financial, and professional self. Know that despite all you have suffered, you can, deserve to, and will thrive again!
