Re: By Any Name, Emotional Maltreatment Is Destructive!

Good point, Rick. When we are fully evolved, we'll look at everything we do - individually or in our systems & organizations -- through a trauma-informed and resilience-building lens. With people feeling safe to speak out about they're injured by behaviors currently considered acceptable, we'll be able to make the transition. CRI is a place where people feel safe to speak about, so that we can increase our awareness of how to empower people, rather than further traumatize already...

However, I also saw phrases such as The Quiet Killer and Invisible Violence. By any name, emotional maltreatment is destructive. Unfortunately, not all agree on what constitutes emotional maltreatment. On one hand, no one would deny that a child being called worthless repeatedly would be considered emotional maltreatment.
