English term or phrase: trauma bonding
Definition from Psychology Today:
Trauma bonding is similar to Stockholm Syndrome, in which people held captive come to have feelings of trust or even affection for the very people who captured and held them against their will. This type of survival strategy can also occur in a relationship. It is called trauma bonding, and it can occur when a person is in a relationship with a narcissist.

Example sentence(s):
  • Over time, the trauma bonding will strengthen, making it more and more difficult for a person to recognize clear signs of emotional or physical abuse. AM-FM Treatment
  • No victim blaming. Instead, they realize that the partner is the abuser, exploiting the misuse of fear, excitement, and creating a trauma bonding codependency that is hard to escape from. Better Help
  • We look into trauma bonding as a way to explain, romanticize, and decode the characteristics of a relationship that feels or once felt so precious. Natasha Adamo
