LEARN TO RECOGNISE WHEN YOU ARE BEING BULLIED
Verbal bullying is a means of using words in a negative way such as insults, teasing, put downs, etc., to gain power over someone else's life. Learn about the Effects of Verbal Bullying! Many people's lives have been destroyed by verbal abuse in business and professional settings.
Survivors of childhood abuse are particularly prone to bullying of this variety. One of the most tragic experiences is to encounter this in medical or mental health services. The most often complained of by survivors is when your 'professional' support group convenor uses the information that they have of your experience or condition to "sway" you into a particular course of action.
Those of you who like myself had a Catholic upbringing would realise that a Catholic environment operates on little other than this form of bullying be it from nuns, priests or other clergy then from "the religious" who are so accustomed that they appear blind to any complaint. In the majority of encounters it can be said that this is a result of culture and environment.
