If you or someone you know answers 'yes' to one or more of the following questions, this book is required reading: * Does your partner seem irritated or angry at you several times a week? * Does he deny being angry when he clearly is? * Do your attempts to discuss feelings of pain or emotional distress leave you with the feeling that the issue has not been resolved? * Do you frequently feel perplexed and frustrated by his responses, as though you were each speaking a different language? Almost everyone has heard of or knows someone who is part of a verbally abusive relationship--if they re not involved in one themselves. In 'The Verbally Abusive Relationship' you ll find validation and understanding--it's not 'all in your head'--and encouragement for your efforts to change the situation. Author Patricia Evans explores the damaging effects of verbal abuse on children and the family, and offers valuable insight and recommendations to therapists, as well as those who seek therapeutic support.

Review:

Are you now, or have you ever been, in relationships with family, friends, or mates who have been verbally abusive? Is your happiness with someone you love continually threatened by interactions that continually undermine your self-esteem? Do you feel trapped in a relationship that keeps decaying in a downward spiral of overt or passive-aggressive abuse?

If so, this book could be your life raft, either carrying you toward repair of the existing relationship or the effects of past relationships or offering liberation from your current confusion. Its practical approach can help clear your head and possibly change your life. The only criticism that I and other readers have is that the author assumes verbal abuse is almost always directed by males toward females, which, in my experience and that of others I know, is not necessarily the case. Highly Recommended.

About the Author:

Patricia Evans, a speaker, consultant, and founder of the Evans Interpersonal Communications Institute, conducts workshops and professional training throughout the country.
