    Naming that feeling we've all had - and ideas on how to stop the patterns

    Dellasega offers the gift of naming that feeling we've all had: the subtle ways we tear each other down and gang up on the weakest among us. Once we name it we can face it. This book offers ways to understand and stand up to the bullying we endure and then offers ways to stop our own aggressive or enabling behaviors.
