Controlling Relationships

Controlling, unhealthy, abusive relationships share the characteristics of destructive cults.  They are sometimes called one-on-one cults, micro-cults, or cults of personality.  Abusive people use tactics listed in the BITE Model to control and exploit others.  Isolation from family and friends, secrecy, and estrangement are tell-tale signs.  For this reason, it often takes the family of a victim a long time to realize that they are in a controlling relationship.
