Emotionally abused wife Kim

When Oprah investigated the silent epidemic of emotional torture going on in American families , we met Kim and Eddie. After watching the emotional abuse captured by our cameras, Eddie vowed to reform his abusive attitude toward his wife. He enlisted the help of Dr. Steven Stosny, the founder of one of the most successful programs for abusive men in the country. Eddie has made some progress, but, according to Dr. Stosny, still has a lot of work ahead of him.

Through this ordeal, Kim says she has learned "that Eddie is filled with pain and truly afraid that I will leave him. I couldn't do that to him. I couldn't take his children away from him."

Oprah has some advice for Kim, and for all women who suffer from emotional abuse: "You have to be able to protect yourself before you can protect your children. This kind of pain, this kind of despair will eventually be projected onto your children. It's worth doing anything it takes to change that."
Abusive husband Max

After Eddie and Kim's story of emotional abuse aired, The Oprah Winfrey Show got thousands of letters, many from men and women who recognized themselves in Eddie and Kim—and wanted help.

Max, a popular on-air personality for a Chicago radio station, decided to reveal his ugly secret: that he is emotionally abusive toward his wife Christine.

According to Dr. Steven Stosny, Max and other emotional abusers need to get help finding a new level of compassion. "When someone reaches out to you emotionally," says Dr. Stosny, "your heart tells you to comfort and love that person. The person you love is in distress. When you feel you can't help them is when most abusers become angry, and the key to overcoming the rage is being re-taught how to be compassionate, how to understand."

Max says he has recognized his problem and promises to work on his connection with his wife and kids.
Greg Behrendt

These six small words from Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo's book He's Just Not That Into You sparked a dating revolution! Lightbulbs were going off all over America after Greg helped several women face the cold, hard truth about their relationships .

Lauren, who got Greg's help figuring out why David would text-message her and not call her, got to reconnect face-to-face with the man who's just not that into her!

David had a girlfriend at the time he was contacting Lauren and says he "wasn't ready to risk losing his relationship with [Lauren], in case things didn't work out. That's the beauty of dating."

Greg says the revolution has felt great. "It's really nice to do something that makes you feel that you're helping people. If women are honest with themselves, it forces men to be honest with them, too, and makes everybody better people."
