Therapists Can Refer Survivors To

Therapists often need other programming they currently do not provide to their clients. Often in Narcissistic Abuse, there are additional needs survivors have that are outside of either our time limits or expertise which include psychoeducational workshops for survivors, legal support or court prep, work with children/teens, or more adjunct work in trauma stabilization.

Below are programs or services that are ‘narcissistic abuse-trauma-informed’ that could be adjunctive help to your clients.
