...If Only I Could Get Out of This Chair
A Support Guide for Survivors of Verbally Abusive Relationships


About the Author

This is the first literary effort for Patrizia Clerico, a 26 year-old native of Pennsylvania. A linguist, by trade, she speaks seven languages, but also realizes that it was important to tell the story of her relationship in order to show how prevalent verbal abuse is becoming in today's society. She offers her support and insight in this work through the use of stories taken from various accomplished authors of today's self help genre, as well as stories taken from her own life and that of her friends. She welcomes comments and or suggestions on this work in progress.
