Media Content Development and Mentorship Program
As of 2023, The Association for NPD/Psychopathy Survivor Treatment, has trained in excess of 12,000+ therapists in a standardized model of care or ‘Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Protocols.’ The growing field of therapists have indicated they need ‘trauma-informed’ recovery media resources for their clients.
This includes resources such as blogs, social media pages, videos, websites, books, etc. that contain content suitable for survivors of trauma, such as in narcissistic abuse. The Narcissistic Abuse Media Association has done examinations of the existing media content in these venues, noting what therapists said about most content not being ‘trauma-informed,’ despite most of the media are produced by trauma survivors of narcissistic abuse.
To best serve trauma survivors in this genre of care to prevent re-traumatization on these sites, and to help bring trauma-informed resources to the 12,000+ therapists seeking them, The Narcissistic Abuse Media Association has:
- Provided an introductory Workshop that details a basic understanding of the importance of ‘trauma-informed’ media for those sites that primarily cater to trauma survivors.
- And for media producers desiring to be trauma-informed and a recommended site, offers a year-long online media mentorship program that provides deep training with direction on revamping existing media sites, or creating new ones, to become trauma-informed resources for survivors and therapist referrals.
Direction, training, and mentoring are delivered through:
Six training workshops a year are included.
