Publisher's Summary

Emotional and verbal abuse has devastating consequences: Self-esteem is broken, new and often harmful behaviors are formed, and lives are changed forever and not for the better. Emotional and verbal abuse affects people from all walks of life. It affects children and the elderly and impacts both women and men in relationships when one partner victimizes the other. Emotional and verbal abuse is also prevalent in the workplace and many institutions.

In fact, in any group of people where one assumes power over others and exercises it with hurtfulness and cruelty of words, the abuse destroys environments and damages those who are exposed to its torture.

In his book, entitled Emotionally Abusive and Verbally Abusive Relationships, author Larry Tate discusses in detail the dynamics that are involved behind emotionally abusive and verbally abusive relationships. You will learn about the causes and effects of such toxic relationships, and you will be given concrete solutions that anyone can apply if they or someone they know encounters such negative relationships.

You will also learn the following:

  • How to recognize the signs of an emotional or verbal abuser
  • Why some people express themselves by abusing others
  • The impact on children who are verbally and emotionally abused
  • The toll abuse takes in an intimate relationship
  • The growing problem of abuse in the workplace and what is being done to protect workers
  • The prevalence of abuse in educational institutions and what is being done about it
  • The emotional and verbal abuse of the elderly in society
  • The potential for effective treatment to change abusive behaviors
  • Solutions for children and adults caught in abusive relationships
  • Handling emotional abuse from narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths and toxic people

Most importantly, the issue of what is to be done about emotional and verbal abuse will be presented and how cultural, societal and neighborhood attitudes impact attitudes toward this problem.

eyeopening

it was life changing and very informative. as a survivor of both emotional, verbal , and serial abuse, I am sad at what's been unveiling in my reality. but knowledge is power for the abused. this book is powerful for the survivor.

left of center conclusions

struggled to finish. Lots of good info, but concludes that we must not be tough with bullies lest we become bullies ourselves and make them even meaner
