Perspectives on Verbal and Psychological Abuse by Dr. Roland Maiuro PhD

There are dozens of ways to be emotionally abusive: unwarranted criticism, sighs, a condescending tone of voice, disgusted looks, and "the cold shoulder," to name a few. In some respects, emotional abuse is more devastating than physical abuse because victims are more likely to blame themselves. While a substantial amount of research has focused on physical forms of domestic violence, there has been little information available about more subtle forms of violence such as psychological, emotional, and verbal abuse. This book, a collection of acclaimed articles from the peer-reviewed journal ...

Once I realized that I was not alone and also that these reactions were totally normal responses to abuse, I was determined to find a way to show others that they, too, were not alone...that they were also...
