Anxiety Disorders Are Linked To This Kind Of Abuse

Anxiety Disorders Are Linked To This Kind Of Abuse

Verbal abuse can often be more destructive than physical abuse.  All the more so because the abuser can drip feed the victim over a period of time with negative input and the victim then believes it and feels bad and guilty.

Verbal Abuse Leaves Invisible Scars

Parents who would never consider physically striking a child often find themselves shouting harsh words at their children, whether out of frustration or as discipline. Research into the long-term effects of such treatment has found that far from positively correcting a child’s behavior. Instead, they work oppositely, fostering depression, aggression, and antisocial behavior. In fact, a study by the University of Pittsburgh found that participants demonstrated the same psychological effects after a two-year period as children who were subjected to physical abuse. (2)
