Verbal Self Defense – Hypnosis can help you develop advanced skills to stay cool under fire and deflect verbal assaults
Have you ever been insulted or belittled and felt utterly frustrated because you couldn’t find the right words to handle the situation?
Do you feel helpless and angry that you can’t make your point when someone is laying into you?
Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me, according to the old children’s rhyme. But it’s a lie.
Name-calling, insults, jibes, sarcasm, criticism, put-downs and every other verbal assault are all forms of bullying behavior. And they can really hurt.
Indeed, researchers have found that physical pain and social pain (such as exclusion or belittlement) are processed in the same area of the brain.
Good verbal self defense is a vital social skill
Insults have been part and parcel of human interaction since time began. We’re a highly social and hierarchical species, and have developed complex systems of ‘pecking order’ to establish where we stand in relation to each other.
Having some sense of status is a fundamental human need, and, sadly, many people seem able to satisfy this need only by putting other people down.
In consequence, we all have to learn to negotiate the minefield of ‘status communications’ and handle whatever gets flung at us along the way.
You might have experienced being on the end of the ‘machine gun’ technique, for instance, when someone fires question after question at you, without giving you a chance to respond. Or you might have met the snide joker, always ready to raise a laugh at your expense.
Verbal repartee may not be the best way to defend yourself
Some people have a natural talent for handling this sort of situation, always ready with a witty comeback or a telling putdown to fire off in return. But most of us actually find it hard to handle, and can rarely think of just the right thing to say. At least, not until it’s way too late to say it.
It can be pretty demoralizing.
It might seem at first sight that the best way forward is to practice verbal repartee. Learn a lot of cutting things to say and be ready to trot them out whenever the need arises.
This might work for some people, but it’s very hard work, not guaranteed to be successful and can easily backfire. It also means that you are ‘buying into the game’.
A far more effective approach is to develop the key emotional and cognitive skills that you need to handle situations of criticism, sarcasm and insult without being drawn into the game.
And the most effective way to develop those skills quickly and easily is with hypnosis.
