1.33 ISOLATION -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

=== Isolation

MEANING: Being alone or separated from friends and those who are supportive.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: Abusers often isolate a victim. They do this because they can control the victim better. If the victim has no point of reference, the abuser will win every time. Feeling isolated is one of the red flags of abusive behavior. Jealousy is often the first step in separating the victim from those who might be in a position to help.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: My 1st wife was quite jealous and she slowly isolated me over the first three years of our marriage until I had virtually no friends. She specifically told me that she no longer wanted us to associate with one of my closest friends, a professor and his family who had always treated us like family and helped us in a number of very difficult situations.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: singleness, solitary, solitude, support, support system, network, jealousy
