I've found that there are certain patterns that are true in all forms of abuse so, although the main topic of this post is sexual abuse, I think it would also be helpful for those who have been victimized by spiritual abuse. Go here to read this post.
This review was posted online regarding Barbara Orlowski's book "Spiritual Abuse Recovery: Dynamic Research on Finding a Place of Wholeness."
This was an excellent review and I believe it gives a good overview regarding the information presented in the book. As the reviewer has said, Dr. Orlowski's book would be an excellent resource for church leaders as well as for those who have been victimized by spiritual abuse.
