No Contact: Ending a Destructive Relationship is based on the author’s personal experiences being in and leaving destructive relationships. The book is meant to be used as a source by people choosing to leave a destructive relationship and break contact with an abusive partner. Although the book is written by a woman and geared toward women, it can be useful for men leaving abusive partners. The emphasis is on having a plan in place and seeking the advice and support from others including community resources and if necessary local law enforcement officials. Community resources and law enforcement can help women be safe while disconnecting from an abusive relationship.

The author discusses reasons for wanting to leave a relationship, signs of an abusive relationship, and what you can do to maintain your focus once you have left.

The confusion we feel with abusers is a deliberate control mechanism. If you listen to what they say and try to make sense out of it, you get caught in the confusion. The trick is not to allow them to confuse you. The easiest way to do this is by not responding. Do not participate in the dance. Get out, stay away, do not contact.

This book is also about hope and what you can do to move toward a better life.
