Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse, also known as psychological abuse, occurs when an individual does something to make another person suffer from depression, anxiety, or other manifestations of emotional trauma. This kind of abuse is often linked with bullying, unhealthy relationships, defamation, physical harm, and other kinds of maltreatment. Generally, emotional abusers use words to manipulate their victims. For instance, a bully calls names, belittles, threatens, criticizes, isolates, and shames others.
