Inside the Mind of an Abuser: What you Need to Know 
 
by Mary M. Alward September 06, 2005

Abusers use warped logic to brainwash their victims. They use methods very similar to those of prison guards, who know that to control prisoners they have to have full co-operation. Subversive manipulation of the mind and destruction of the victim are perfect tools to enable abusers to succeed.

The Logic of Brainwashing

Abusers use warped  logic to brainwash their victims. They use methods very similar to those of prison guards, who know that to control prisoners they have to have full co-operation. Subversive manipulation of the mind and destruction  of the victim are the perfect tools to enable abusers to succeed.

The Process of Brainwashing

The abuser uses several methods of coercion to brainwash his victim. They are as follows:

Isolation

Abusers deprive their victims of social interaction with family members and friends. This is necessary to gain control over the victim.

Resistance

The abuser manipulates his victim to become mentally and physically dependent upon him, which reduces the ability of the victim to resist his abuse.

Threats

Abusers use threats to cultivate anxiety, despair and the ability to resist. Most often they threaten children, family members or friends with harm if the victim doesn’t comply with his demands.

Indulgences

Occasionally the abuser will comply with the wishes of the victim in order to provide motivation to comply with his every demand.

Omnipotence

The abuser suggests to the victim that it is futile to resist his demands.

Trivial Demands

Abusers strictly enforce trivial demands in order to create a habit of compliance in his victim.

Degradation

Abusers degrade their victims in order to damage their self esteem and make them think they are unable to face life on their own. Self esteem can be damaged beyond repair and the victim is often reduced to animal level concerns.
