About the group

More than often, the victim of narcissistic abuse is not aware of the fact that they are caught in a
cycle of manipulation, harm and control. Abuse that is done by a narcissistic partner/parent/boss/sibling/friend all falls under the category of narcissistic abuse. It can be emotional, physical and sexual.

Narcissistic abuse is not defined by just the presence of abuse but by a set of specific traits and
behavioral patterns repetitively and consistently found in the person being seen as the abuser.
