Possessiveness, insensitivity, and a sudden personality change are all warning signs of a potential abuser.

Interweaving real-life stories of four couples, Dr. Noelle Nelson highlights dangerous turning points in relationships and explains how readers can safely diffuse tension between their spouses, lovers, or roommate and protect themselves from abuse.

Excerpt

I have known Dr. Noelle Nelson's work as a clinician since 1987 and have been continuously impressed with her insight and skill as a clinical psychologist. She has used her years of experience in her work as a basis for Dangerous Relationships. Dr. Nelson reveals her personal journey as a clinician and shares many others' stories-- their abuse, their pain, and their road to self-discovery. She offers examples of clients and their struggles and triumphs.

Dangerous Relationships is a must for any individual entering a relationship with doubt. Dr. Nelson has clearly developed guidelines that delineate the warning signs of abusive relationships. The book illustrates what kinds of relationships are dysfunctional from the outset and which ones are likely to succeed.

Dr. Nelson's characterization of the abuser is illuminating. It becomes apparent as relationships progress that abusers follow a pattern in developing relationships.
