99. Unveiling Dog Whistling in Abusive Relationships
In today's podcast episode, we delved into the disturbing world of dog whistling within abusive relationships. This manipulative communication tactic is used by abusers to exert control and maintain power while evading direct accountability for their harmful actions. Similar to a dog whistle emitting high-frequency sounds only dogs can hear, abusers use subtle language, gestures, and actions with hidden meanings understood only by the victim. These hidden messages serve to isolate, manipulate, and emotionally control the victim, leaving them doubting themselves and their reality.The podcast provides a comprehensive breakdown of how dog whistling operates within abusive dynamics. It highlights covert communication, isolation tactics, code words, and the implantation of fear to keep the victim compliant and fearful of consequences. The emotional and psychological impacts are significant, leading to anxiety, depression, and distorted self-perception. The episode emphasizes the importance of recognizing dog-whistling, seeking external support, and building a solid network to break free from the abusive hold. By shedding light on this manipulation tactic, the podcast aimed to empower listeners to identify and address such behaviors, fostering awareness and conversations about healthy relationships.For more information about the Rising Strong Society Membership Program, go to: RakelColina.com/MembershipHere's all the ways we can connect:InstagramFacebookTikTokRakelColina.com
