An emotional abuse questionnaire is one that aims at testing whether an individual is undergoing such a predicament. The questions assist the counselor to determine the level of abuse and the reasons behind the abuse.

An emotional abuse questionnaire also helps in revealing the extent of the damage caused psychologically to the patient. With the help of the questionnaire the doctor or counselor can trace the source of the abuse.

An emotional abuse questionnaire helps the doctor or counselor to prescribe proper medication or take necessary action to treat the patient. The subtle approach of the questionnaire also helps the patient to share information he hasn’t shared before.
