Have you ever had the feeling that something’s not right? The explanations don’t quite make sense. You feel guilty, but you don’t know why. You’re afraid to speak, while at the same time, uneasy about staying quiet.
This is often how people caught in spiritually abusive systems feel. And on this episode of The Roys Report, abuse advocate and researcher, Wade Mullen, joins Julie to discuss his new book on abuse: Something’s Not Right: Decoding the Hidden Tactics of Abuse and Freeing Yourself from its Power.
Wade did his doctoral dissertation on the tactics evangelical organizations use when caught in a crisis. And he’s become an expert on impression management—the strategies that individuals and organizations use to gain power and cover up wrongdoing.
This podcast will open your eyes to the tactics abusers use and begin to equip you with the tools you need to move forward in freedom.
