Have you been in a toxic, pathological, or narcissistic relationship? Has it produced confusion, shame, infuriating craving for the relationship, and an inability to break free physically or psychologically?
I am excited to be part of The Fourth Annual World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day (WNAAD) Tele-summit. World Narcissistic Abuse was awarded its own recognition day, which is June 1st of every year.
It is recognized as a day of awareness because it is estimated that over 100 million, that’s right MILLION, people have been harmed by someone else’s personality pathology. That harmful impact is often related to symptoms like intrusive thoughts, craving of the relationship, anxiety, sleeplessness, loss of concentration, trauma disorders, reduced functionality personally, professionally and in parenting, hypervigilance, and cognitive dissonance.
Survivors of narcissistic relationships can spend years, even decades with unresolved symptoms that are often enhanced by needed continued contact with the partner in parenting or returning again and again to court and the legal abuse it inflicts.
That’s why WNAAD stepped up to be the first to create a tele-summit to spread awareness AND bring together some of the field’s best professionals to provide world-class recovery insights.
This online event has generously provided that you can listen to as many of the over 20 interviews for free that you would like on June 1st and June 2nd. My interview is called, Complex PTSD: Understanding and Healing The Wounds of The Past To Live More Fully In The Present, and I hope you will listen in.
Beginning on June 1st and lasting until June 2, 2020, over 20 therapists, legal professionals, and other industry professionals will present topics that will infuse survivor’s recovery with needed actionable steps to reduce trauma symptoms. We hope you will be one of the over 20,000 expected to listen in and benefit from specialists in narcissistic abuse.
