There is nothing in the world quite like the feeling that someone, somewhere, finally gets it.
Adult children of narcissists have been conditioned to downplay, dismiss, and ignore their experiences. This survival skill of staying below the radar can cause even very skilled clinicians to miss subtle opportunities to connect. As a clinician, it is paramount that you understand the scope of what these clients have endured so you can avoid inadvertently repeating the cycle of invalidation.
Drawing from decades of specialized clinical practice and illustrated with rich client stories, this essential guide provides a thorough walk-through of the assessment and treatment of narcissistic abuse so you can:
