Description

From the psychologist and author of Gaslighting comes a practical recovery plan outlining ten foundational steps to true healing.

Surviving and escaping a toxic or abusive relationship can often only be part of the struggle. Long after, survivors often struggle to heal; your self-esteem may be damaged, you may feel rage and betrayal, and you may punish and/or blame yourself. The author of Gaslighting and specialist in toxic behavior, narcissistic abuse, and personality disorders, Dr. Stephanie Sarkis has seen it all--and she is here to help you understand how to move forward. In Healing from Toxic Relationships, Dr. Sarkis extends compassion and knowledge to survivors, helping you understand the underpinnings of toxic behavior and how to find peace.

Highlighting ten essential steps, Dr. Sarkis provides survivors with an accessible framework that can be applied to anyone preparing to heal:

  1. Block or Limit Contact
  2. Create Your Own Closure
  3. Forgive Yourself
  4. Establish Boundaries
  5. Talk to a Professional
  6. Practice Self-Care
  7. Reconnect
  8. Grieve
  9. Look Outward
  10. Prevent: Keeping Toxic People Away

Anyone who is in a toxic relationship-whether it's with a romantic partner, colleague, family member, or friend-deserves a way out and a path forward. Dr. Sarkis offers help and hope.
