Debilitated and Diminished - What Others are Saying

Debilitated and Diminished: what others are saying:
Debilitated and Diminished is a wonderfully helpful book for any biblical counselor. I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable with the term “emotional abuse” because I think it can be thrown around too easily; some women simply live with an inconsiderate and selfish husband. But does that constitute emotional abuse? And how do you counsel biblically and compassionately? Dr. Dryburgh answers these questions with a clear, solidly biblical approach. She first defines and describes what is meant by emotional abuse, what typical types of behavior are displayed by an abuser, and what the abuser is typically trying to achieve. She then recommends ways to counsel Scripturally which includes the role of the church as well as how to help the wife think and act biblically. After reading this book, I feel much better equipped to help women who are caught in an emotionally abusive marriage. Highly recommended!

She helps us understand the dynamic of the control behind the abuse, and then carefully gives instructions to address this dynamic.
There is no simple fix, but accurately understanding the problem and walking through it rather than sweeping it under the rug or blaming the victim is what gives hope and encouragement. For the abused, she describes the biblical resources to grow spiritually and respond biblically in the midst of these difficult circumsta…
