Recognizing the Abuser is the topic in this first of three episodes with Charlene Quint where she provides valuable insight and information about how to identify abusers and the underlying personality disorders that drive them. You will hear:
- Why many churches and pastors are not effectively recognizing and dealing with the issue of abuse, allowing victims to remain vulnerable
- The definition of the acronym SNAP which stands for Sociopath/Narcissist/Abuser/Psychopath, in reference to a person with one or more of these personality disorders
- A description of the three phases of A Romantic Abusive Relationship
Each of these topics and more are covered in depth in the first section of Charlene’s book (below).
Charlene’s book, Overcoming the Narcissist, Sociopath, Psychopath, and Other Domestic Abusers: The Comprehensive Handbook to Recognize, Remove and Recover from Abuse (October 1, 2020, Redemption Press), masterfully weaves together research, personal experience, professional expertise, and true stories of dozens of survivors. The book is designed to give women of faith everything they need to know to identify abuse, get out safely, heal, and become the woman God designed them to be.
