Intimate Partner Abuse & Coercive Control Expert Releases Two Books
Guides Provide Exercises and Help for Women
BELMONT, MASSACHUSETTS – Psychotherapist and intimate partner abuse expert, Carol A. Lambert, has released two books for women in relationships with controlling partners and women sexually harassed at work.
Women with Controlling Partners, her first book, is based on over two decades of clinical work with women and domestic abuse research. The book helps women identify the coercive constraints that can be predictive of intimate partner abuse, recognize the harmful effects of psychological abuse on a woman’s mental and physical health, and gain the personal strength and power to stand up to the abuse and decide what to do.
“Women with controlling partners don’t merely suffer blows to their self-esteem and confidence; they also gradually and insidiously lose their sense of who they are. Deeply validating and brimming with practical advice and wisdom, Women with Controlling Partners guides readers through the often subtle process of psychological abuse, helping them escape the confusion and shame that enshroud their experience by offering a detailed road map back to themselves—and their lives. Their journey is made all the more reassuring by the rich voices of women who’ve traveled the exact same path in Lambert’s recovery groups and arrived at their final destination—freedom—feeling deeply empowered.” —Craig Malkin, PhD, Harvard Medical School lecturer and author of the internationally acclaimed Rethinking Narcissism

The author has also self-published a second book, Abusive Relationship: Abuse Men: Why Sexual Harassment and Emotional Abuse Happen and What You Need to Know to Protect Yourself.
Written during the height of the “Me Too” movement, this book helps women identify their feelings, pinpoint the controlling, abusive behaviors of the perpetrator, and then address the issue that protectsn this brief but powerful book, Carol Lambert deftly describes the all too frequent patterns of behavior that characterize abusive treatment of women. A clinician myself, I strongly recommend this guide, which can help women contextualize and recognize these behaviors. Lambert further offers sensible ‘actionable’ strategies women can use for self-protection, including advice to ‘honor your own strong beliefs.’” – Nancy Kuziemski, Ed.D.
