Emotional abuse is a scar that is not typically observed clearly but rather is deep established inside our mind that may interrupt the daily life of an individual. The most well-known type of abuse but then least talked about not just hinders adolescents improvement additionally hinders with his/her self-concept. An effort has been made to find out how emotional abuse affects self-concept among boys and girls. The present study was directed on 300 adolescents (boys n =150, & girls n =150) using purposive sampling method. Emotional abuse was assessed by using emotional abuse scale developed by Alam & Nesheen (2015) and self-concept was assessed by using Mohsin self-concept inventory. After analyzing data by simple independent sample t-test and simple correlation it was found that there is a significant difference among boys and girls in terms of emotional abuse and self-concept. Results also show that boys are highly emotionally abused than girls and also there is a negative correlation between variables.
