Defending yourself from these verbal abusers-calmly, professionally, and successfully-can be crucial to your on-the-job success.

Powerful yet unthreatening, her proven strategies will help you recognize and defend yourself from verbal abuse-everything from casual obscenities and racist or sexist language to sarcasm, cutting jokes, and subtle put-downs. Richly illustrated with fully dramatizes scenarios and real-world examples, Dr. Elgin's communication techniques will help you instantly take control of any verbal confrontation. You'll also learn how to avoid 'malpractice of the mouth' and sexual harassment; communicate sensitively and clearly with non-native English speakers; and project a strong, straightforward, and trustworthy image.
