Association for NPD/Psychopathy Survivor
Treatment, Research & Education

The International Associational Body for
the Narcissistic Abuse Counseling Field

Are You a Survivor?

If you are a survivor, we are glad you found us.  The Association and this website are for the training of licensed mental health professionals because we recognize the undertraining that has been prevalent in the field and wish to help survivors by training therapists in an evidenced-based, trauma-informed model of care.

As an FYI, the newsletters we offer are for therapists to become trained in working with survivors and are not survivor-oriented.

The first part of a two-part training was launched in January 2021 and we are happy to report the first workshop has trained over 2,000 people in 2021.  Therapists are required to take the second part of the training which became available in August 2022. 

We are delighted to announce our Directory of therapists trained in the Association’s model of care has launched! This is the result of years of planning, preparation, and hard work.

Follow the link below to search the Directory, or read more about it here.

We are busy adding new, qualified therapists to the Directory. If no one is available in your area yet, you may want to contact Bree Bonchay, a therapist who serves on our Board of Advisors. (The other Board members do not provide therapy or do not have openings at this time, so please do not contact them.)

Please note Bree is not a pro bono therapist, and neither are any of the others.

Ultimately, YOU are the reason that the Association exists and the reason we are working so hard to train professional therapists to best help you. We are delighted to train therapists and help connect you to them for your recovery needs.  Thank you.
