We are joined by psychotherapist, American Mental Health Counselors Association Diplomate, and author of Gaslighting: Recognize Manipulative and Emotionally Abusive People - And Break Free, Dr. Stephanie Sarkis. Dr. Sarkis explains what gaslighting is, why people gaslight, and the short-term and long-term psychological effects people who get gaslighted experience. She also offers examples ranging from subtle to extreme forms of gaslighting, signs to be aware of, and how to set boundaries in order to protect yourself from emotional abuse. Whether you’re being gaslighted, or you’re doing the gaslighting (there’s help available for you too), this informative episode provides guidance, action steps, and hope. Plus, find out which popular TV tropes Dr. Sarkis is not a fan of, and rightly so!
