Is that the reason I get abused? like the other educational mental health books in this series, has been designed to appeal to individual clients or families, as well as the mental health clinician interested in learning more on the issue of healthy boundaries and how to effectively avoid abusive behavior. The other self-help books in the series include the following topics: Dysfunctional Families, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Parenting, Codependency, Substance Abuse, Communication and Assertiveness, and Love Addiction.
