Today, 1st June, is World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day.
A global event that raises awareness about the signs and impact of narcissistic abuse.
The day is dedicated to raising awareness and educating people on what narcissistic abuse is, how to identify abusers, the red flags to watch out for, and the support available for survivors to help them safely leave and start to rebuild their lives and heal.
In honour of this global day, and to support all survivors who have or are still suffering at the hands of a narcissist, we are sharing some Stowe talks resources to support people dealing with or separating from a narcissist and those recovering from narcissistic abuse from one of the leading narcissism specialists in the world: Dr Supriya McKenna.
