1.66 WITHDRAWAL -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Withdrawal

MEANING: Removing oneself either emotionally or physically

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: After years of abuse, abused people may find that they have withdrawn emotionally from others or their family or have withdrawn physically to remain in a small room or space most of the time. This is often because their boundaries and personal space have been pushed and controlled by the abusive person.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: Withdrawal is closely tied to depression, in my experience. A person may withdraw to gain some personal space but over time may become depressed because he or she has, in a sense, been backed into a corner and does not have much room to move.
