Verbal attacks can make us feel anxious or defensive. These attacks take various forms-put-downs, blame, falsehoods, objections-but always aim to undermine their target. Practice effective ways to deal with these attacks, including techniques for staying calm and thinking clearly under pressure. We will explore useful responses to verbal attacks based on Aikido, a Japanese martial art, and the modern science of psycholinguistics. Role play and exercises offer opportunities to put new skills into action.
