There are many different types of narcissist but you will have come across them in life – you may work for someone with narcissistic traits, you may be married to a narcissist. This course has been created to help you recognise narcissism, avoid emotional manipulation, deal with narcissism, and recover from narcissistic or damaging relationships.
Following an introduction to what emotional and domestic abuse are, the course focuses on what a narcissist is, how to identify them, behavioural warning signs and how they may make you feel. You’ll learn about eight types of narcissist and their modus operandi and explore the essential concepts of narcissistic supply and love bombing.
You’ll learn about the manipulation techniques narcissists use on a daily basis – gaslighting and projection, coercive control, hoovering, triangulation, and flying monkeys – as well as the phrases they may use.
We’ll consider how emotional and narcissistic abuse impacts an individual’s mental health, self-esteem, sense of self, cognitive functioning and emotional regulation. We’ll also explore narcissism in the workplace.
The course will increase your awareness of narcissism, and explain how to protect yourself from narcissists and safely end a relationship with them, along with looking at options for therapy and things you can do to help yourself, if therapy isn’t an option.
