About the Series

Narcissistic abuse is an incredibly confusing and destabilizing form of emotional trauma. Those who are victim to it report feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, confusion, self-doubt, anxiety, depression, and even symptoms resembling PTSD. What’s worse, many of these sufferers don’t realize that narcissistic abuse is at the core of these debilitating symptoms.

Because narcissistic abuse is not widely understood, most victims of narcissistic abuse are suffering in silence. Additionally, many mental health professionals may not have the tools to recognize the signs of narcissistic abuse, so can’t fully help their patients through this trying situation.

Narcissism expert and clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula is at the forefront of research and treatment for narcissistic abuse. She treats it every day in her practice, and she brings that expertise to MedCircle.

In this empowering series, she provides the education you, your loved ones, or your patients need to recognize the cycle of abuse and overcome the feelings of invalidation, anxiety, depression, and more that result.

Finding relief from narcissistic abuse begins with education. Learn how to improve your situation and your mental health outcomes in this series.

[The narcissist] draws you in so quickly…then the floodgates open. Over and over again I hear from my clients, ‘I don’t understand how this happened. The first six weeks were so great.’ People spend decades living in the first six weeks. It’s the stories we tell ourselves. That’s what keeps the abuse alive.
