"This is a heart-wrenching story and beautifully written. The author shares not only history but a wealth of personal insight." 2017 - Benjamin Franklin Awards Amazon Top Customer Reviews This just goes to show that a memoir doesn't have to be written by someone "famous" to be a page-turner. The writing is punchy and vivid; you will not be bored. Actually, it's like staring in horrified fascination at the proverbial slow-motion car wreck, complete with skids, slides, multiple collisions, and several end-over-end flips -- except that by the time you're halfway through, you know the driver and all the passengers (especially the poor little girl in the back seat). There's heartbreaking betrayal along the way but, ultimately, the story is one of triumph, because some people never understand what has happened to them and why. Congratulations to the author not just for figuring it out and surviving (and managing to raise a great kid), but for dwelling on the positive present instead of the tragic past. - Doowop Dan on July 3, 2016. "The Emotional Terrorist is important, beautiful, deep, poetic, gripping and informative." Sylvia Cary, LMFT, Los Angeles.
“An important and original book about violence” In this important book, suppressed in England, Pizzey argues that not every battered woman is simply a victim. To successfully reduce violence, Pizzy convincingly shows that domestic violence prevention workers must distinguish between the emotional terrorist, addicted to pain and provoking violence, and those truly seeking escape from violence. This is the successor to “Scream Quietly or the Neighbours Will Hear”, the first book on wife battering. It is a challenging must-read for all those dealing with family violence, policy-makers, family rights activists and anyone concerned about violence in society. The book contains the updated text of the original book, suppressed in England, minus outdated appendices, plus Pizzey’s new research and conclusions comparing battered women and violence-prone women. A separate section describes the “emotional terrorist”, a personality instantly recognizable to their targets. CONTENTS: The “emotional terrorist”, who she is and why she does it. A comparative scientific study of battered women and violence-prone women. * History of the first battered women’s shelter in the world (including virtually the full book “Prone to violence”) * Effects of violence on children * Violence and addiction– theory, data and the Connection. * Conflict-resolution solutions from a pioneer in dealing with domestic violence. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Erin Pizzey founded the world’s first shelter for battered wives in 1971. From that beginning there are now women's shelters all over the world. Over a period of ten years, Erin Pizzey became involved with over 5,000 women and their children who came through her shelter. This book is the core of her thinking and conclusions on domestic violence. She has completed two world tours lecturing on domestic violence. A writer and a journalist, she has written: Scream Quietly or the Neighbors Will Hear (also done as a film of the same name), Infernal Child and The Slut's Cookbook. Pizzey's fiction writing includes The Watershed, In the Shadow of the Castle, The Pleasure Palace, First Lady, The Consul General's Daughter, The Snow Leopard of Shanghai, Other Lovers, Swimming with Dolphins, For the Love of a Stranger, Kisses and The Wicked World of Women.

As a manager, you can usually handle disruptive employees. But sometimes, their emotional states foster workplace tension, even making them a danger to others. Your own confidence is at risk. In The Manager’s Guide to Bullies in the Workplace: Coping with Emotional Terrorists, noted counselor Dr. Vali Hawkins Mitchell gives you sensible advice for keeping the bully from dominating the workgroup and destroying productivity – and maintaining your own healthy emotional balance at the same time. Sometimes the difficult person is an overt physical bully, which makes it easy to simply fire the person. Much of the time, however, the problems are more subtle and build up over periods of time. They undermine your ability to manage your team – and they can spread to the rest of the team, destroying teamwork and productivity. In this short book, Dr. Vali helps you to:Recognize the types of upsetting work situations that bullies exploit to their own advantage, such as change, grief, and violence.Understand why emotional terrorists make it so difficult for you, as a manager, to deal with their behavior. .See the symptomatic tools and techniques of the emotional terrorist, such as harassment, lying to supervisors, tampering with documents, etc. .Conduct training to help other managers and team members recognize and handle the signs of impending emotional conflict – you will love the “Snakes in the Schoolyard” exercise. .Know exactly what to say and not say when you must have a one-on-one interview with someone you consider to be a bully. .Be an effective manager in a world of challenges – protecting and preserving the mental health of your employees and yourself. . Dr. Vali uses realistic examples and humor to help you handle the challenges you face – and to show the degree to which she really understands your situation. With her guidance, you will be more comfortable with knowing when you can handle the situation through simply being the good manager, when you need to call in an outside mental health professional, and when you need to call 911.
