Helping People Build and Maintain a Social Support System After Abuse
Sometimes people have such difficulty with personal relationships that they have problems maintaining a social support system.
Trouble managing anger and unrealistic expectations can sabotage interpersonal relationships, including those with family, friends and mental health professionals. Those who have suffered extensive childhood abuse often have problems with low self-esteem and do not relate to others in healthy, meaningful ways.
