Clara Mc Comber will be speaking about verbal abuse.  Most of us are familiar with the idiom " sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Anyone who has experienced verbal abuse knows that the saying is not true, that words do hurt us. Verbal abuse is detrimental to emotional well-being, it lowers self-esteem, breaks the spirit and can even lead to physical illness. It's not just the words that can hurt, but the tone of voice coupled with abusive energy directed at a person. Additionally mind-games can be involved that can instill a tremendous amount of self-doubt and confusion in the person being abused.
