Innocent Fun or Sadistic Malice?
by Linda Sones Feinberg,
We have all been on the giving and receiving end of teasing. Friendly, playful teasing helps us to alleviate anxiety, to cope, to play and to exercise our wits. Teasing can even improve relationships at work and at home. However, teasing can be a serious problem when done in a compulsive or sadistic manner. In some cases, teasing has even led to murder.
In this, the first book on the subject, psychotherapist Linda Sones Feinberg gives readers an understanding of what can be fun or be one of life's most tormenting experiences.
