Verbal abuse is a behavior, not a disease

Recognizing abusive behavior - Star Exponent: Columnists: "Verbal abuse is a behavior not a disease.  Emotional abuse is used to control, humiliate, degrade and punish a spouse.  When a woman (or a man) suffers this abuse she starts to change her own behavior to keep her partner happy and at times becomes fearful of her partner.  The happier the partner, the less the spouse has to suffer.  She will doubt herself and her own sense of reality because emotional abuse is meant to cause the victim to question her every thought and behavior."
