Abstract

The paper presents several problems related to the theoretical elaboration of the term emotional abuse regarding the difficulties connected with defining this abuse, which is according to some authors, the most difficult form of abuse and considering the difficulties of its classification, ‘measuring’ and categorisation of individual manifestations of parental behaviour that can be described as emotional abuse. Apart from that, the paper presents some specific features of emotional abuse in adolescents’ families, as well as the mechanisms of self-defence during the abuse of children and adolescents. In the end the author discusses some aspects of the role of professional helpers in the work with parents whose relation with adolescents shows characteristics of emotional abuse.
