DARVO: Deny, Attack and Reverse Victim and Offender


There’s a new article on www.shrink4men.com that discusses DARVO, a phenomenon that occurs in abusive relationships when a husband or boyfriend attempts to hold his abusive wife or abusive girlfriend accountable.

The post also offers advice on how to protect yourself from it.
