Publisher's Summary

"You're too sensitive."
"You'll never amount to anything."
"You're crazy."

If this is what you hear — from your spouse, your parent, your boss — then you’ve been the victim of verbal abuse. This insidious behavior permeates our culture — from the privacy of our own homes to the public glare of our schools, workplaces, and other institutions. But you don’t have to live with it.

In this groundbreaking companion to her best-selling The Verbally Abusive Relationship, acclaimed educator and author Patricia Evans brings you the tools you need to triumph over verbal abuse, no matter where or how you encounter it. She’ll introduce you to a powerful healing process and provide:

  • A thorough review of available therapies
  • Strategies for dealing with abusers
  • Positive messages of support and encouragement
  • Inspiring affirmations for every week of the year
With Patricia’s assistance, you’ll achieve the clarity you need to build a new life — far from senseless accusations, wounding words, and confusing comments that have taken an untold toll on your psyche. You’ll find validation, and learn to believe in yourself — and a better future — once more.

A little too "healy feely"

Evans generally has good info, but in this book she advocates ideas like hands on healing and hypnosis, or talking to yourself as if you are a baby. Many parts of this book feel like filler. Also the 2nd half of this book is all affirmations, which I find not terribly useful. Returning it.

Good book for someone...

Who has not done a lot of personal work and is just realizing that they are in an abusive relationship. Great description of verbal abuse.
