The Spider and the Fly

Are You Caught In An Abusive Relationship?

By Ruth Morgan Raffaeli

A potential abuser of women can be spotted in even the earliest stages of a relationship. The problem is, not enough women are educated about domestic abuse and many fail to notice the signs and symptoms of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse. Being able to recognize these telltale signs, and knowing what she can do to protect herself, can save a woman's self-esteem, mental health, and even her life.

After its self-tests, case studies, and sample dialogue help women identify if their relationships are abusive in any way, The Spider and the Fly then outlines with caring and true understanding the choices women have. Among other topics covered are:
How to spot early warning signs of potential future
What to expect from shelters, hotlines, the police, and counselors
The role of alcohol and addiction
Where to get help
How to prevent falling back into abuse once it has been escaped

Written in non-threatening and non-judgmental language, The Spider and the Fly teaches potential victims how to get out before it's too late, and those already battered how to leave while maintaining their safety, the well-being of their children, and their legal rights.
