Love Works – Passive-Aggressive Abuse

A passive-aggressive person uses language to manipulate and control a relationship. While people may have passive-aggressive tendencies that may or not be triggered in a given situation or with a specific partner, there are some people that only relate in a passive-aggressive manner. These true passive-aggressives cannot recognize their behavior, show no remorse, and seem to lack capacity for any other means of communication in a relationship.

Join Lisett Guevara and Jim Gulnick of Love Works as they speak with Annmarie Cristiani, author of The Calm and the Storm – Notes from a passive-aggressive relationship. This episode of Love Works discusses:
• What is a passive-aggressive relationship and how it messes with your mind
• How to recognize if your partner’s behavior is passive-aggressive
• Steps to take to help avoid getting involved in a passive-aggressive relationship
• Why NOT playing the game eliminates your role in creating conflict

Lisett Guevara and Jim Gulnick are the hosts of Love Works, The Science of Relationships and authors of Single? How I found my perfect match in 90 days. The book provides exercises and worksheets to help you bypass the Ego and find out who you are, what you want, and what you want in a relationship and to help you avoid the wrong partner.
