Free Live Webinar: Learn All About Passive Aggressiveness

(Please note: This free live webinar will be recorded and a copy made available to all who register.)

Passive Aggression is basically directing hostile or negative feelings indirectly at someone rather than directly. Other symptoms include a general avoidance of conflictual situations, displaying sullenness, procrastination and any type of anger in an underhanded manner. They deny feeling angry and reassure that everything is fine. Instead, they are indeed angry and resentful and will also display “shutting down” behavior and often use the silent treatment in order to make the other person feel responsible rather than be accountable.

Some of the attributable causes to these destructive behaviors can be upbringing, where direct expression of emotion wasn’t allowed. Fear of being assertive or open emotionally can lead to passive aggressively expressing emotions.
