Groups for verbal abuse

Chambersburg Public Opinion - Our view: Abuse victims can get help: "WIN has tried to assure victims that help is available, and with that in mind, is offering a new support group for victims of verbal abuse.

Abuse doesn't have to be physical. An abuser can tear down the self-esteem of his partner by being overly critical and easy to anger.

WIN, in a news release about the support group, asks these questions:

--Does your partner seem irritated or angry at you several times a week?

--Do your attempts to discuss feelings or pain or emotional distress leave you with the feeling that the issue has not been resolved?

--Does your partner deny being angry, even when he clearly is?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then you may benefit by participating in the support group that begins in mid-September."
