Healing from Narcissistic Abuse
3.0 CREDIT HOURS
Adults raised in a narcissistic or emotionally immature family of origin bring the scars of unmet attachment needs, emotional abuse and neglect, unresolved grief, and internalized gaslighting into their daily life. In order to best support these clients in healing from complex developmental trauma, therapists need to understand how the roots of narcissistic abuse can extend through all areas of life. In this session, therapists will learn about three key areas of healing: coping with complex grief and ambiguous loss, recovering from chronic gaslighting, and reconnecting with the internal world of the self.
Amy Marlow-MaCoy, MEd, LPC is the author of The Clinician’s Guide to Treating Adult Children of Narcissists (PESI Publishing, 2023) and The Gaslighting Recovery Workbook (Callisto Media, 2020). Amy is an internationally known expert on gaslighting and narcissistic abuse, providing training and continuing education credits for clinicians as well as consultation and mentoring for clinicians wishing to deepen and grow their strengths in working with survivors of narcissistic abuse.
In 2023, Amy founded The Courageous Heart Institute, a learning community for clinicians specializing in treating survivors of narcissistic abuse. She runs a private practice treating narcissistic abuse and complex developmental and relational trauma in adults, and has advanced training in multiple trauma treatment models, including IFS, EMDR, and brainspotting.
