Some relationships, whether they be parent-child, spouse, sibling or friendships, can be emotionally abusive in nature.

In an emotionally abusive relationship, one person consistently controls the other through fear, humiliation, manipulation, fear or shame.

In spotlight today is Maitri, a non-profit organization in bay area helping South Asian women (and now men) in situations of domestic abuse, cultural displacement, or unresolved conflict.
They run support groups for survivors of abuse as well as people still in abusive relationships seeking a safe place to explore their feelings and operate a transitional home, an six bed facility for women (and their children) who have left abusive relationships and are on their way to rebuilding their lives.
