“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 The book contains the updated text of the original book, suppressed in England, minus outdated appendices, plus Pizzey’s new research and conclusions comparing battered women and violence-prone women.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.

They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence. For more information please visit:bhbookawards.com The Emotional Terrorist is an extraordinary memoir of resilience and revelation. 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, licensed psychotherapist and author, Los Angeles.

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. .

The Cost of Emotions in the Workplace: The Bottom-Line Cost of Emotional Continuity Management
Finally – a people management guide that goes way beyond the typical "problem employee" books to help you understand and manage the entire emotional culture of your organization. Many of us have witnessed – sometimes in helpless horror – how a simple problem can spin into a corporate crisis as people take sides, outside professionals are brought in, and company reputations suffer, as this description illustrates: "Everything was exposed and raw as if a common energy had stripped away the veneer of civilized behaviors...People took sides, hid, ran, quit, overworked, underworked, ate too much, drank more, complained more, went silent, changed jobs, exited. They reacted as if all their system had been tossed into the air and was never going to land again." This wasn't the scene of a criminal act, earthquake, or terrorist attack. Rather, it was the disruptive and costly outcome of months of escalating workplace tension in the wake of changed management policies. Like a tornado, two violent co-workers had left 600 others in emotional rubble. That company could have been prepared with corporate policies and procedures to defuse such emotionally charged situations - long before alarming human and financial costs hit its bottom line. Managers could have learned to recognize and stop “emotional spinning” from gathering destructive force. The old paradigm of separating humans from humanity during work hours is not only antiquated thinking, it's high risk corporate behavior.“Dr. Vali” calls her ground-breaking solution Emotional Continuity Management. She provides tools you can use right now to avoid costs in decreased productivity, injured goodwill, employee turnover, plummeting employee engagement, and severed business relationships.In this practical book, Dr. Vali gives you:Real-life case studies that show you how to calculate bottom line, dollars and cents costs of disruptive employees and managers and emotionally charged incidents.Proven techniques to help you identify variations in behavior that are early warning signs of trouble. She compares them to “tornado warnings” and provides a 5-point scale.An understanding of the psychology driving “emotional terrorists,” who stage themselves as victims and gather an army of acolytes to assist in their campaigns of emotional disruption, and a game-plan for managing such attacks before, during and after an event.Practical tools for managing workplace emotions before, during and after an emergency, based on the author’s extensive on-the-ground experience in counseling first responders and victims during major national and international disasters.Policies and procedures for working with military veterans returning to the workplace - and the need to deal with PTSD.Techniques for containing and mitigating the damage created by workplace bullies - and when to decide if an "amputation" is required or a less-extreme strategy is needed.Sample policies and plans, and detailed instructions for company-wide training programs, up and down the organization.
The Romantic Terrorist: Protect Yourself From Stalkers, Harassment and Threats
According to Dr. Michelle Ward, Criminal Psychologist and narrator of the hit TV reality show “Stalked: Someone’s Watching You,” over three million people a year are stalked, over two-thirds of them women. Ninety percent of women killed by husbands or boyfriends had first been stalked. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that one in 10 women and one in 35 men in the U.S. have been or will be stalked sometime in the future. Among celebrities and other high-profile people alone, the statistics are staggering, and are on the increase. This book is written for everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, gay or straight, young or old, large or small. Bullying, stalking, harassment, revenge and threatening behaviors by someone you know can happen to anyone – and it’s probably already happened to you. We focus predominantly on “romantic” relationships, but these principles apply to anyone in your life. For example, many people have been victims of harassment by neighbors, coworkers, bosses, teachers, friends, acquaintances, family members, strangers and hired help. It is not uncommon to suffer harassment by someone you barely know, or someone you’ve never met – someone who has been watching you and/or studying you without your knowledge (as in Celebrity Stalking). Our main goal in this book is to assist you in becoming more aware of when someone is controlling, manipulating, harassing, bullying, stalking or threatening you, and empower you to respond in ways that will protect you. Controlling, manipulative, and/or threatening behaviors often turn into turn violence. If you find yourself in a situation with any of these types of people, you will learn how to manage them and yourself. Some of the chapters included are: --The Rejected Lover--Is it Love or Obsession?--Controlling and Manipulative Ploys--Dr. Jekyll -- Mr. Hyde Types--The Romantic Bully--Emotional Blackmail--Cyberstalking and Spying--Handling Dangerous Situations--Protective Orders and Legal Action--Best Strategies to Stop the Insanity!--Post-Traumatic Stress--Battered Persons' Syndrome--Effective Formula for Conflict Resolution--De-Escalation Training--Grieving, Moving On and Thriving--Positive Affirmations and New Commitments We walk you through the entire process and give you our best strategies and advice every step of the way. Only YOU can implement it, and our hope is that you WILL.
