Title: What is hoovering?
Post by: AdultChildinthefog on March 01, 2017, 01:54:07 PM
Can anyone point me to a definition of what hoovering is?  I keep reading this term but am not exactly sure what it is.

Daughter,
Hoovering is in the glossary in the Toolbox. Basically it refers to a hoover vacuum cleaner, a metaphor for when we try to break from a PD they try to "suck" us back in with any number of tricks or manipulations. I hope this helps.
