You may have trauma clients who are victims of narcissistic abuse without even knowing it.
In a clinical setting, victims of narcissistic abuse can be conditioned to behave a certain way, to show only the good things. They can dissociate to remove themselves from the trauma, and struggle to talk about the abuse in therapy. Some may not even be aware of the abuse, especially if the narcissist is still involved.
If you’re like most clinicians, you only have a superficial understanding of personality disorders and the traumatic harm those with them can inflict on their partners. Without the proper training you can fail to connect the dots and miss a key component of treatment for these clients.
This program will give you the in-depth understanding and clinical tools you need to recognize the signs of abuse from Cluster B disordered partners and discover the keys to treating the survivors!
