Silent Treatment Abuse or Shunning

“Silent Treatment Abuse” is the ancient practice of shunning using modern terminology to describe how it appears in our present relationships.  It can be most confusing and frustrating because it feels like there is nothing that can be done about it.

Many people have experienced abandonment, helplessness and loss when they have been shunned by a group or by loved ones.  It is a form of shaming another person.  Various religious groups have made a science out of it.

The silent treatment or shunning is a strategy to control someone.
