Narcissistic Abuse: An Unspoken Reality   Leave a comment

narcissistic-abusehttp://narcissismdocumentary.com/

Richard Grannon made this documentary for all the victims of narcissistic abuse who felt as unheard and misunderstood as he did. For everyone who had their family and friends look at them like they were crazy when they tried to describe the issues within the relationship or who even had people turn their back on them for saying that something was wrong.

And especially for everyone who endured going to a therapist or counsellor only to be told by a “professional” that narcissistic abuse wasn’t real and the problems were all inside their own head.
Narcissistic abuse is real and highly destructive and it’s time this issue not be swept under the carpet anymore.

 

Erasing Family   Leave a comment

Courtesy of Craig Childress, Psy.D., I viewed rough cuts of a documentary film about parental alienation called “Erasing Family.” The documentary includes stories told by targeted parents. Most powerful are statements by now-reunited children.  This is strong stuff. Some of you may cry watching the 2 related videos.

The director and producers have met much resistance, including a Court order to remove it from YouTube and having it censored in Argentina. They need funding. Go to their website. http://erasingfamily.org/

Gaslighting   Leave a comment

Gaslighting is a technique of twisting and spinning information with the intent of making victims doubt their own perceptions and reality.

The term derives from a 1938 play, later adapted to the film Gas Light released in 1940 and 1944. The plot involves the psychological manipulation by a husband who attempts to convince his wife that she is insane. He manipulates aspects of their environment, and then insists that she is mistaken or delusional. The film title refers to his dimming the gas lights in the house, but the husband insists his wife just imagined the change.

Parental Alienation Syndrome has been typically defined as one parent turning the child against the other parent. However, in a variation of the syndrome, a child may be unwarrantedly estranged by Dark Forces other than a parent.

Hi everyone. I’m Dr. Linet. As a psychiatrist, I am including this heart-rending video by a young woman who speaks after just having had a panic attack. To those of you who suffer from Panic Disorder, you are not crazy. Do not neglect yourselves. Get help. When properly diagnosed and treated the prognosis for this condition is truly excellent.
