By reading this article series, we hope you will learn to listen to your friends', neighbors', relatives'--or maybe even your own--waspish, hurtful words.

Emotional abuse leaves few physical scars. Its victims suffer no broken bones, torn flesh or spilled blood. Still, those wounded might describe it as the most painful and destructive form of domestic violence.

While statistics are elusive, experts agree that emotional abuse-for mostly women, but some men as well-have reached epidemic proportions. And despite its everyday occurrence, few of us recognize it, identify it or even do anything about it.

By reading this article series, we hope you will help you learn to listen to your friends’, neighbors’, relatives’-or maybe even your own-waspish, hurtful words. And if you are a recipient of this type of domestic violence, first hold yourself in high esteem, re-evaluate your relationships and then ask for help.
