Let’s Talk About Shh… Avoiding Emotional Blackmail
While discussing abuse of any kind can be a difficult conversation, it’s a really important one for people to learn about. We discussed one part of emotional abuse which is emotional blackmail. We identified what emotional blackmail is and what kinds of emotions abusers use to try to manipulate us. We discussed common tactics used by abusers and how they might try a number of tactics at the same time.
In order to combat emotional blackmail, we went over some exercises that people can use to strengthen their confidence and buy themselves some time to think in the face of an abuser’s demands. We went over common questions a person should ask themselves about the demands that are made. Lastly, we covered how someone can decline the demands of the emotional blackmailer.
