In this episode I explore the idea of Narcissism. It is a slight diversion from my normal topics but one I think is helpful for all educators to be aware of, not only for their own experiences and relationships but also to potentially support children you come in contact with. It is a topic very close to my heart and is steeped in ideas about kindness which is central to all religions. In this episide I interview someone who has experience abuse at the hands of a narssicist. We talk about her ideas about what narssicism is, early warning signs, how to get help and how to recover. It is a deeply personal interview. For obvious reasons, names have not been used in this episode.
Here is a link to Melanie Tonia Evans website - the current leading expert on Narssicistic Abusive Relationsips. We also discuss somatic experiencing - a trauma healing programme which can support recovery from Narssicistic Abusive Relationsips.
