Description

“It’s my own fault isn’t it…”

The trauma caused by the verbal and emotional abuse of Gaslighting can and leave clients doubting their self-worth, feeling isolated and questioning their sense of reality. They can lose hope as their abuser wears them down and takes control.

But Gaslighting is often subtle. It can be hard to spot, even for therapists. Without recognizing the signs and knowing how to work with the resulting trauma in therapy, your clients could continue to suffer the effects of ongoing abuse and manipulation.

This 3-hour program is a must-have for all clinicians so you can recognize the signs of this form of emotional abuse and effectively support your clients in building resiliency, reducing their vulnerability to ongoing abuse, and developing healthier relationships as they reclaim their lives.

Watch Gaslighting expert and best-selling author Amy Marlow-MacCoy, LPC, as she gives you the skills and tools you need to help your clients:

  • Recognize Gaslighting in romantic, friendship and family relationships
  • Build resilience to the effects of gaslighting and regain their personal power
  • Cope with guilt, anxiety, and shame over setting boundaries
  • Work through their traumas with techniques from IFS, DBT, narrative therapy, somatic experiencing and other approaches

Make sure you’re prepared to help clients facing the devastating impacts of this growing form of psychological abuse.
