There is an old saying that used to be heard by children in the play yard, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". However, in today's society, we are finding more and more that this is no longer true. 

Psychological abuse, also referred to as emotional abuse or mental abuse, is a form of abuse characterized by a person subjecting or exposing another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma including anxiety, chronic depression or post-traumatic stress disorder. Such abuse is often associated with situations of power imbalance, such as abusive relationships, bullying and abuse in the workplace. Tonight, let's talk about it.

Peace and Blessings...
