#3691 Verbal abuse doesn’t leave the same physical evidence as battery, but it can be just as painful, and can actually take longer to recover from. The revised edition of this important reference covers the most recent developments in dealing with verbal abuse and answers the questions readers ask most on the subject.
In this edition Evans reveals the Outside Stresses driving the rise in verbal abuse – and shows you how you can mitigate the devastating effects on your relationships. She also outlines the Levels of Abuse that characterize this kind of behavior – from subtle, insidious put-downs that can erode your self-esteem to full-out tantrums of name-calling, screaming, and threatening that can escalate into physical abuse.
Drawing from hundreds of real situations suffered by real people just like you, the book offers strategies, sample scripts, and action plans designed to help you deal with the abuse – and the abuser.
