Refer journalists and editors to my media kit:
Pathological narcissism may be the undiscovered, and most under-reported, epidemic of our age.
Some (like Christopher Lasch) say that our whole civilization is infected with narcissism.
Many (maybe even the majority of) criminals and abusers are narcissists, or have narcissistic traits.
So what is "Narcissistic Abuse"?
All of these, and more, are part of it:
· Emotional abuse,
· Mental cruelty,
· Systematic abusive manipulation,
· Pathological control,
· Pathological deceit,
Narcissistic Abuse can, and does, occur in any setting. It can affect one person, or an entire community.
· In a relationship,
· In a family,
· In the workplace,
· In School or College
· In any other community,
Wherever it occurs, Narcissistic Abuse always causes lasting damage , often serious damage, sometimes very permanent damage.
Narcissistic Abuse is difficult to prove at all, let alone sanction or control.
For the victims recovery can take far to long. There are too few resources and too little is understood.
SO WHAT CAN WE DO TOGETHER TO CHANGE THAT?
