You deserve respect.

In this fully expanded and updated third edition of the bestselling classic, you learn why verbal abuse is more widespread than ever, and how you can deal with it. You'll get more of the answers you need to recognize abuse when it happens, respond to abusers safely and appropriately, and most important, lead a happier, healthier life.

In two all-new chapters, Evans reveals the Outside Stresses driving the rise in verbal abuse - and shows you how you can mitigate the devastating effects on your relationships. She also outlines the Levels of Abuse that characterize this kind of behavior - from subtle, insidious put-downs that can erode your self-esteem to full-out tantrums of name-calling, screaming, and threatening that can escalate into physical abuse.

Drawing from hundreds of real situations suffered by real people just like you, Evans offers strategies, sample scripts, and action plans designed to help you deal with the abuse - and the abuser.

This timely new edition of The Verbally Abusive Relationship puts you on the road to recognizing and responding to verbal abuse, one crucial step at a time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The verbally abusive relationship Really a great book. I grew up in a controlling church and a lot of things I allowed in my life at a young age was because I was use to how I was treated, as I was growing up. Which as not lead to successful relationships in my life. A friend suggested this book to me. I am so grateful for his insight and guidance, so that I choose the right life partner. I didn't get to finish the book 75% done because the update erased it, but loved most of it so far. Thank you!
