Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Victim playing (also known as playing the victim or self-victimization) is the fabrication of victim-hood for a variety of reasons such as to justify abuse of others, to manipulate others, a coping strategy or attention seeking.diverting attention away from acts of abuse by claiming that the abuse was justified based on another person's bad behavior (typically the victim), soliciting sympathy from others in order to gain their assistance in supporting or enabling the abuse of a victim (known as proxy abuse).It is common for abusers to engage in victim playing. This serves two purposes: justification to themselves - as a way of dealing with the cognitive dissonance that results from inconsistencies between the way they treat others and what they believe about themselves.show more
