Emotional abuse can be difficult to define, since there may be no physical signs.   It is clear that this form of destructive behavior is based on power and control, and many teens suffer emotional abuse from their peers, family and other trusted adults.  It can affect their self-esteem and greatly impair psychological development and social interaction, manifesting itself in many ways.   These can include social withdrawal, severe anxiety, fearfulness, depression, physical complaints, substance abuse and the inability to feel and express emotions appropriately.  Emotional abuse can occur when parents or teens in relationships constantly criticize and threaten, resulting in damage to self-esteem and feelings of self-worth.  In this program, Teens discuss their experiences with emotional abuse, how they recognize it, and the effect and consequences it has now and may have throughout their lives.  Interspersed with the Teen discussions are valuable insights and guidance from clinical psychologist Dr Deborah Cooper.
