Hi, this is couple therapist Abe Kass, MA RSW RMFT.
Let's review your Emotional Abusers Quiz Score "Total points."
Keeping in mind your total points, scroll-down until you find the range for your score. Then read what your 'results' mean. For example: If your score is 150 points, your score fits into the 156 - 141 score range.
156 - 141 points. Yes, your partner is ready to stop all abuse and change for the better.
Based on your quiz results, it seems like your partner has come to understand how wrong abuse is and what he or she needs to do to make amends. You are fortunate!
140 - 122 points. Your abusive partner is on the road to recovery.
The abusive partner needs additional work to have the right attitude and behavior to stop all abuse. He or she should continue to educate and sensitize himself or herself to be more committed to being a non-abuser.
Less than 121 points. The ‘abuser’ has the wrong attitude about abusive behavior, how wrong it is, the damage it causes, and will likely continue the abuse in the future. The fewer points your abusive partner received under '121 points,' the less likely he or she is ready to change for the better.
Likely your abusive partner needs professional help to stop his or her harmful ways. Personal and relationship therapy, anger management, honesty, sensitivity training, spiritual commitment, education about relationships will all likely help this person get ‘real’ about what he or she has done or is still doing.
