The Gaslighting Recovery Workbook

Healing from Emotional Abuse

Gaslighting is the practice of psychologically manipulating someone into questioning their own sanity—and if you are reading this, you may be all-too familiar with this form of emotional abuse. The Gaslighting Recovery Workbook is a uniquely interactive method of rebuilding your self-esteem and allowing yourself to heal from an abusive relationship.

Through a process of explanation, advice, positive affirmations, daily logs, visualizations, and a journal-style workbook approach, you’ll understand gaslighting, the stages of recovery, and how to heal and move forward. It contains the most effective, evidence-based strategies for conquering gaslighting at work, with friends and family, and partners.

The Clinician’s Guide to Treating Adult Children of Narcissists

Pulling Back the Curtain on Manipulation, Gaslighting, and Emotional Abuse in Narcissistic Families

There is nothing in the world quite like the feeling that someone, somewhere, finally gets it. Adult children of narcissists have experienced a lifetime of complex developmental and relational trauma that can leave deep scars and a distorted sense of self. In order to safely and effectively work with these resilient survivors, clinicians need a solid understanding of the narcissistic relationship dynamics. That’s where the Amys come in. Drawing from decades of specialized clinical practice and illustrated with rich client stories, Amy Marlow-MaCoy and Amy Kempe provide a thorough walk-through of the assessment and treatment of narcissistic abuse so you can:
  • Differentiate narcissistic abuse from other forms of family conflict
  • Work through ethical considerations when assessing narcissism
  • Treat complex trauma, grief, and attachment wounds
  • Navigate transference, countertransference, and the person of the therapist
Add this book to your library to deepen your understanding of this complex world today.
