Verbal Abuse Journals - Verbal Abuse Is Domestic Abuse That Leads to Physical Violence
Psychologically Abusive Relationships: Are You in One? Psychologically Abusive Relationships: Are You in One? Written by Natasha Tracy Psychologically abusive relationships can be seen in any configuration: between spouses, caregiver and child, within a friendship or in the workplace. While anyone can be abusive from time-to-time, psychologically abusive relationships are built on frequent and constant situations of abuse. And instead of a meaningful apology after an abusive act, the perpetrator half-heartedly apologizes often with a justification such as, "it's so hard to be nice to you."1 Psychological abuse, sometimes called verbal abuse or chronic verbal aggression, does not discriminate. Psychological abuse can happen to heterosexual or homosexual couples of any race or socioeconomic status.
