I love the fact that my Church, Win Missionary Baptist Church has their application on my phone up and running!! It is smooth, sleek and a amazing method for me to hold in touch with my Church and obtain closer in God's Word and in my relationship with Him.
This book is EXCELLENT for any and all due to the unfortunate multitude of people on this planet who are verbally abusive. In the past, I did not always recognize my relationships were with verbally abusive people. Yet, listening to this book while in a relationship with a negative person, I became acutely aware of just how toxic this person was, and why I felt stressed out around him and even away from him. It helped me to recognize others who have been verbally abusive, yet I did not realize how damaging they were to me. Now I am not able to tolerate the abuse as easily. I know too much to stay in toxic relationships as long as I did before.
This is a wonderful, insightful, healing book. As a psychiatrist with 31 years in the medical profession, I want I'd encountered Patricia Evan's work much earlier in my career, and I would recommend this book not only to victims of verbal abuse, but also as needed reading for all specialists in training as counselors and therapists. It is that e strengths of the book contain (1) a rich, insightful definition of verbal abuse, (2) a key section on what doesn't work in combatting verbal abuse, and (3) insights about what freedom from verbal abuse means and the steps to take along the path to recovery.Evans defines verbal abuse as more than just name-calling and put-downs. Her definition contains any attempt by another (usually a partner in an intimate relationship) to define and assign motives to the victim. Thus, statements like "you're too sensitive" or "You're trying to pick a fight" or "what's wrong with you", are attempts to define, control, and pathologize the victim and would qualify as verbal abuse. Don't ever allow anyone else define who you are, she advises. When someone else tries to do so, it is a reflection of their faults and limitations, and you are not to blame. A large part of verbal abuse is, in essence, "brainwashing" - i.e., the abuser assures the victim that he or she loves them and knows best, giving out a confusing notice to the victim. Awareness of the forms of verbal abuse thus serves as a large antidote to becoming a victim because a lot of people wonder what's wrong with the relationship -or what's wrong with them - without recognizing that the issue is a verbally abusive relationship. Because there are no bruises or physical scars, and because the verbally abusive person often treats colleagues and neighbors wonderfully and reserves the abuse for only his/her partner in the relationship, victims often spend years trying to figure out what's wrong. Reading this book can spare the victim years of confusion, self-doubt, and misguided attempts at ere are also insights about the personality and needs of the perpetrator. Evans studiously avoids the over-used term "narcissist" and, refreshingly, instead focuses on the dynamics of the behavior rather than the label. Verbal abusers have a fragile, inflated, incomplete, and blurry sense of self that, in essence, relies on using a partner as the repository of his or her projected self-criticisms in to feel amazing and whole. The victim never sees it coming in advance, but may through no fault of their own, have a pre-existing inner sense of unworthiness or low self-esteem that "magnetizes the abuser personality into one's life", thus creating the dynamic of the verbally abusive relationship. These insights are, in my opinion, pearls of wisdom and are followed by describing a fairly detailed path for the healing ere is probably an epidemic of verbal abuse in America that is not adequately recognized or treated. I've had the book for less than a month and I've already found it useful in dealing with clients, colleagues, and family. Even the short section on "what doesn't work" in dealing with a verbally abusive person could potentially spare a victim from years of futile effort. As you can see, I highly recommend this book. If "Victory Over Verbal Abuse" could be abbreviated as "V.O.V.A.", then my conclusion is: "VIVA, V.O.V.A." !!
It is very difficult to stand up for yourself if you have since childhood felt unloved. You may, like me, search yourself in an abusive marriage and stay there because of your desire for a family. With kids grown and grandchildren here, I finally had the courage to leave an abusive relationship. This book gave me clarity, strength, and renewed courage. I particularly like that it helped me see how to answer to verbal abuse and how to grow and care for myself.
If you like Bro. Hagin’s books and Norvel Hayes’ books, you will love this book. Emily has faith like their amazing faith. If you are in problem and sick, this book could be your answer. Would be a nice bonus for someone interested in faith and healing.
On January 21, 1983, 53 year old Emily Dotson lay dying of Systemic Lupus. Only 97 pounds, weak from years of illness, Mrs. Dotson had a word of knowledge from the Lord, and she chose to believe it. She obeyed the Lord and his word for her, and chose to believe that He would heal her of a condition her doctors had told her was invariably fatal. But Ms. Dotson chose the Lord's diagnosis over the doctor's, and then for the next year proclaimed her healing boldly and stood on the promise of God's scriptures for healing. A year later, she was examined by her doctors and there was no trace of Lupus in her bloodstream. Today, 2011, at 82 years old, Ms. Dotson tours the globe telling others the glory of God and his abundant mercies. And yes, she is still of is is a wonderously encouraging book. Ms. Dotson relates that what God did for her, he can also do for others, as he is no respector of persons. Her writings teach the reader what she did to enable her healing to take place. Her courage in facing her illness and her unshakable faith in the Amazing Physician are two qualities that she believes are essential in healing. Witout faith, she writes, Jesus could do no miracles in his hometown, but with faith, nothing with God is a effect of her miraculous healing, Ms. Dotson went on to become an evangelist herself, teaching others how to gain healing by speaking God's scriptures in faith. This was a private transformation for her, as she was by nature shy and retiring. But the Lord renewed her mind and personality, and with faith and determination, Ms. Dotson became a strong force for the Lord.I love reading about God's miracles. He still works miracles today, just as he did in the land of Israel nearly 2000 years ago. What I particularly enjoyed about this book is how Ms. Dotson shows how anyone can do the things she has done. She insists that there is nothing unique about her, only that she decided to live and not die, and to live she had to choose to have faith in the Lord. speak verbally his promises, and then stand on those promises, despite her everyday reality of illness from Lupus. Her healing so dramatically changed her, much like the changes seen by the Apostles after they received the bonus of the Holy Spirit, that her life story stands as a modern-day testament what faith and the Lord can do.kone
Patricia Evans has written about an problem with therapy that is astonishing--like most of us, there is the assumption in therapy that "it takes two to tango," as my mother would say. In fact, that is often real in life. However, in the particular realm of verbal abuse and controlling people, it's not right. I was married for 11 years to a verbally abusive man. I kept assuming that I was doing something to provoke his outbursts--if I'd just used the right words, or taken a various tone in my voice, or approached him at the right time. My diaries from that time were filled with self-recriminations for not being a amazing wife. What I learned from a marriage counselor who recommended Patricia Evans books was that in this particular power dynamic, every time I took responsibility, my husband got bigger and more controlling. I kept thinking that surely he loved me and wanted the best for me! When my husband dropped out of therapy after being thoroughly insulted by what the books were pointing at, it was my therapist who had to break the news to me that, in fact, John didn't wish what was best for me; he wanted to control me. The books are good, not only at identifying the phenomena, but also giving appropriate responses to the controlling individual. This book and her other one, Controlling People, are incredibly helpful. My husband and I divorced in 2008, but I have given these books to a lot of mates and acquaintances along the method who were suffering as I did.
Emily's acc of her miraculous healing from end-stage lupus, 20+ yrs. ago, is a testimony not just to the power & faithfulness of God, but even more to the power of faith to change hopeless situations using the unchanging Word of God as the basis for unwavering faith & tenacity. It increased my faith, my knowledge & my determination to keep what the Word of God says, not what I think, feel, or fear. A MUST read for anyone dealing with health issues!
Patricia Evans gives the best method for thinking about abuse I've encountered as a therapist specializing in this issue. As a woman married to a man of a various culture and generation, where misogyny is a given, her first book was a lifesaver for me. Her responses to verbal abuse worked. This book is simpler and describes perfectly how verbal abuse begins and how to end e women in 'my' domestic violence help group unanimously agreed that verbal abuse hurts worse than physical injuries. This was surprising until we unpacked the typical abuse pattern. Any abuse is about control and has nothing to do with anger. It usually begins with verbal abuse that is 'soul killing'. Trying to create sense of senseless attacks is exhausting. Making meaning of nonsense is ctory Over Verbal Abuse describes how it begins in a home that doesn't nurture the kid (usually male), where he is misunderstood and perhaps entirely discounted. When small kids play, they make a globe where their toys say what they want, feel how they want, and do what they want. Especially for someone who is neglected or misunderstood, total control is more than delightful--it's a adulthood, this person wants and needs to recreate a situation of total control. If a partner doesn't think, feel, say and do exactly what he wants, his rage knows no bounds. Remember yelling, "It's not fair" when you were little? That's the feeling. She writes with empathy for both parties and doesn't create anyone entirely wrong, just frail and easy-to-read fascinating vignettes with clear explanations, as much fun to read as a novel, the author describes the process and gives a magical response to verbal abuse. "What?" She says the only possible method to stop abuse is to stop the onslaught and obtain the abuser to hear what is being said and how it is being said. She gives a fine caveat. Do NOT do this with weapons involved. It's humbling to learn so much from a non-therapist about a topic I've studied for more years than I care to count. Who cares that she has expertise I don't? The goal is to understand and to create it stop.
I read this book via an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited s do not have to be overly wordy to obtain their notice across, and this brief book by Dr. Francis Jonah proves it. In the mere 19 pages this book contains, the author has given his readers a possible better understanding of the bible’s sacred writings and a method to add it to their own is fleeting and what I believe the author is trying to do in writing this book in the manner he has can be found in:New Living Translation Psalm 90:12Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in r it is wisdom that will give us a better understanding of life itself and the ability to succeed in everything we’d like to accomplish.And if anyone should doubt what I’m saying, allow them read:King James Bible Proverbs 4:7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore obtain wisdom: and with all thy getting obtain r having given his readers rather brief yet strong reading experience, how can this reviewer of Christian books not give this author the 5 STARS he earned.
All of his books are uplifting and have helped my faith and helped me everyday in my life! This one is no different. Faith is the key and believing in your own authority through God is a android game changer!
An interesting read, but it didn't include any eye opening fresh info or suggestions for me as an abuse survivor. I'm going through the weekly affirmations now and it's a amazing exercise, but nothing mind blowing.I was annoyed and concerned over the author's repeated tip to talk back to an abuser and simply call the police for support and leave if he or she doesn't react well to this. Anyone who has been with an abusive partner or parent knows that "mouthing off" and standing up for yourself is a amazing method to create them dangerously mad and aggressive really fast. Verbal abusers can turn physical very easily, even if they have not displayed that kind of behavior before.Leaving is a nice idea, but one that can be hard to carry out quickly when things turn bad, especially if you are legally bound to the abuser as their underage child, wife/husband, parent of their children, or adult caregiver. Running away is rarely an option; it takes careful planning and time to leave in a method that is permanent and legal. Leaving an abusive job can be just as hard. She no tip on that in this book, at ities often unintentionally side with the abuser and believe the lies they tell. The author states that a verbal abuser will act like it's all in your head and create the situation seem like anything but what it is by clever use of words, yet she doesn't connect this to how it will go down when the police, social services, or HR arrive. When they leave, the abuser may retaliate even harder. The authorities are less likely to hold coming to your aid as reports hold rolling in. They begin to see you as unstable and reactionary, just like your abuser intends. She has a lot of trust in the system that I just don't share, based on my private experiences and those of people I've known.I felt the author was very naive and superficial in her understanding of abuse. Perhaps my experiences were particularly horrific, but I do not think they are uncommon, and had hoped for more sound tip from such a boldly titled book. I have one other book from this author, which I bought at the same time, "The Verbally Abusive Relationship". I will give that a fair try, but I think both are headed for donation.
I ordered this audio book and found it extremely helpful for me. I understand what has been event to me throughout my marriage and other relationships prior to marriage. I wasn't crazy after all, I was simply being manipulated. Initially I felt like a victim, then I felt angry, then I began to feel empowered with the knowledge and that it was not too late to create changes in my life. I am able to recognize the signs of verbal abuse throughout my day. There are so a lot of people verbally abusing and manipulating others. Its sad. I also realized that this abuse has also been taking put throughout my lifetime to my mother by my father. I gave the audio book to my mother to listen to and she contemplated allowing my father to listen to it. He just didn't obtain it but he seems to have created some progress by seeing it in others. This is definitely something I would recommend to a mate who is in a verbally abusive relationship. Thank you so much Patricia Evans for writing this
Win Over Verbal Abuse is an extremely validating book for those who have experienced verbal and emotional abuse. I've read some of Ms. Evans' other books, and found them to be very helpful in a practical way, but this book is reassuring and validating on a deep emotional level. The book confirmed for me that my emotions about being abused were common - that it's normal to feel confused and betrayed, to feel worthless, as if everything was my fault, and to even feel dread at the thought of facing the abuser. The descriptions of abuse and survivors' stories in this book parallel the happenings and feelings I wrote about in my memoir, The Box of Daughter, and firmly create the point that the issue in an abusive situation is not that the person being abused has it all wrong, the issue is that the abuser makes senseless, negative statements about that person in to feel Evans defines verbal abuse very clearly - whether it involves abuse by parents, bosses, friends, or spouses - and demonstrates how kids learn it from their parents, often growing up to become abusers themselves. She shows that the shock and trauma of verbal abuse can be even more disabling than physical abuse.Her words unconditional encouragement for becoming your own person and living up to your e book also clear guidelines and helpful hints for recovering from abuse, and contains a chart of symptoms, which I found very enlightening. A number of various therapies which can help in recovery are described, and the second half of the book consists of a year's worth of affirmations designed to increase private st of all, I loved Ms. Evans' declaration that the negative statements you've heard most about yourself reveal your greatest gifts. That was certainly real for me. "You're too sensitive" was the most frequent comment of my childhood, and as I overcame the abuse and began to make a better life for myself, I found in my sensitivity and awareness a tremendously valuable ctory Over Verbal Abuse is an perfect book, a real bonus of the heart for anyone who has been abused.
I haven't gotten through the whole book as yet, but I will say that reading the first handful of pages struck a chord with my reality to the point where I sat and cried. I know and purely understand no one is perfect, and that doesn't leave any room for excuses. However, knowing how to face a really tough problem with someone whose life story has quite a few bumps in it as well really does support and this far, I believe Ms. Evans' book is a real gem.
The book provided me with an understanding of my undesirable life I had spent for 27 years with the perpretratior, I was relieved to realize that I had gone through an abuse which was "unseen".to everyone including me. It confirmed the reason why I could not live with myself any longer, he had destroyed my spirit and I did not know why. Everything in this book identifies with the slow but determined inner destruction I endured every day. This book has been therapy and helped me to love myself again. Thank you is not enough.
I haven't actually worked for Win yet, or even searched for gigs, but I’m giving the application a 1-star rating because in to enter my date of birth, I had to scroll month by month all the method back to the year I was born and now my forearms are tired. I can’t wrap my head around the fact that the developers not only thought that such a way of entry was a amazing idea, but made an interface for it.
(LIKE if this helps you) Note: Review about quick money is fake=In app, says pay can take upto 90 days after happening ends. Www service says apply online or in app, but all online profiles have been deleted/no method to apply online. To update application you have to uninstall/reinstall, if still screwed up call Victory direct to fix. For me when I apply, it just says waiting for manager selection FOREVER.. Like I've never been hired via the application yet (I've had this application since they moved from web to app), Win just hires me by phone & then books me using the app. For IO, I waited 10 days to obtain hired after using app, only to search out no one knew I applied. Others say they obtain hired through the application (iOS versus Android?) Can't tell if my resume is attached nor which one. Application is not intuitive. Doesn't say in application but Resume must be PDF. Convert images to JPG before uploading. Always wants GPS on, turn on GPS first before loading. They don't tell you, but you have to download the app, & obtain approved first before you can apply. If you call/email before downloading the app, you will waste day(s) trying to obtain on a gig & create your Referral look bad, no exceptions. All BA's have to use this application to obtain hired to work anything.
