Each of my books covers different information and all are essential to building a complete understanding of Verbal Abuse. Please scroll down to see them all. Best recommendation: read them in sequence!
The FIRST, "The Verbally Abusive Relationship," shows that verbal abuse is a lot more than name-calling and that there are a dozen main categories of verbal abuse, from the silent treatement and discounting, to threatening and name-calling.
The SECOND book, "Verbal Abuse Survivors Speak Out," explains other forms of control, addresses coping and suggest that readers be sure that any therapist they go to is aware of the dynamics of verbally abusive relationships.
The THIRD, "Controlling People," clearly lays out what goes on in the mind of the person who uses verbal abuse to control someone, or some group. There is nothing else like it. Dr. David L. Quinby, Professor, Emeritus, Dept. of Psychology, Youngstown State University says, "Human kind urgently needs this, both on an individual and a collective level. Nothing else seems to be working very effectively."
The FOURTH book, "The Verbally Abusive Man - Can He Change?" shows the reader exactly what to do to wake up a person who indulges in verbal abuse, but thinks that either they don't indulge in verbal abuse or think that they are provoked to be abusive when no one has abused them. Some people respond to verbal abuse, such as: "You're too sensitive", with a comment like "You're being a jerk." They don't know how to respond in a non abusive way. This book helps to sort it all out and is ideal for partners of people who indulge in verbal abuse, and likewise is ideal for people who want to stop being verbally abusive.
The FIFTH Book, "Victory Over Verbal Abuse: A Healing Guide to Renewing Your Spirit and Reclaiming Your Life," is designed to empower you to create the life you want, far from senseless accusations, wounding words, and confusing comments. And, there is an affirmation and message for every week of the year.
