Description

The manipulation is usually insidious and slow.

And working with clients experiencing narcissistic abuse (gaslighting), requires you to simultaneously understand the confusing nature of narcissistic behavior AND the deep and painful wounds of the abuse survivor.

Victims of gaslighting often feel they’re unable to disclose the abuse, or even unaware of the abuse due to discrediting by the perpetrator as “crazy”. Clients are left feeling unsure of reality—trapped in a web of manipulation and control.

Watch Stephanie Sarkis, PhD, author of Gaslighting, who has helped thousands of clients identify gaslighting and extract themselves from unbearable suffering perpetrated by narcissists and sociopaths.

Dr. Sarkis will give you the tools needed to identify and treat the emotional abuse of gaslighting, and understand the behavior patterns of those inflicting the emotional abuse.

You’ll learn:

  • Top 10 questions for uncovering gaslighting abuse in your clients
  • To identify love bombing and hoovering
  • Signs and fallout from emotional abuse
  • The complexities of the grieving process when leaving a gaslighter
  • Tools to help clients rebuild self-awareness and emotional balance
  • And More!

Don’t let this underserved population of abuse go untreated. The quicker we can identify the signs and psychological ramifications of gaslighting, the sooner we can help clients rebuild their lives.
