Understanding and Responding to Verbal Aggression

Bullying is verbal aggression. Just as martial artists train to respond to all types of physical aggression, we can train ourselves to respond to verbal aggression. In this Facebook Live talk, I talk about the nature of verbal aggression, how it relates to social power, and how you can use the principle of discursive positioning to nullify the verbal aggressor politely, yet firmly. Part of the power of verbal aggression stems from our cultural conditioning that makes us respond to hierarchy. I give you permission to reject that conditioning when you are verbally attacked.
