Donald Dutton’s book The Abusive Personality: Violence and control in intimate relationships is also worth reading on the biological basis for abuse.

Jim O’Shea Although good boundaries are your best defence against abuse, you need further tools to protect yourself. One of these is awareness at the beginning of a relationship of the warning signs that a partner may be potentially abusive.

The victim stance is in all abusers, and this type whines that he has been wronged, especially by women, and that he has a hard life. Among the victim-type abuser is the so-called mentally ill or addictive abuser, who denies responsibility for his actions because of his ‘illness’ and uses it to make others feel guilty for challenging him. The selfish abuser overvalues his contributions, and sees only his own needs. The know-all abuser, who is an authority on everything, dismisses your contribution with contempt.
