The following two books were extremely helpful to me. I recommend them highly.

Evans, Patricia. The Verbally Abusive Relationship: How To Recognize It And How To Respond (Second Edition). Holbrook, MA: Adams Media Corporation, 1996.

Kingma, Daphne Rose. Coming Apart: Why Relationships End and How to Live Through the Ending of Yours. New York: Fawcett Crest, 1987.

Here are some other books that I quoted and/or found useful.

Berzon, Betty. Permanent Partners: Building Gay and Lesbian Relationships That Last. New York: Plume, 1988.

Brandon, Nathaniel. The Importance of Self-Esteem. Deerfield Beach, FL: Health Communications, Inc., 1992.

Evans, Patricia. Verbal Abuse Survivors Speak Out: On Relationship and Recovery. Holbrook, MA: Bob Adams, Inc., 1993. This is the sequel to the above. Not as good.
