HEALING FROM TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS

10 Essential Steps to Recover from Gaslighting, Narcissism, and Emotional Abuse

by Sarkis, Stephanie Moulton

In Healing from Toxic Relationships, Sarkis helps survivors to understand the underpinnings of toxic behavior and how to move forward, tackling everything from getting self-esteem back, self-care, how to avoid toxic relationships in the future, and more.

In Gaslighting, Dr. Stephanie Sarkis unpacked the manipulative behavior used by narcissists and sociopaths to make their victims question their own reality and keep their victims in their thrall. Now, in Healing from Toxic Relationships, she extends compassion and knowledge to anyone in the aftermath of an abusive or toxic relationship.
Survivors often struggle to heal; their self?esteem may be damaged, they may feel rage and betrayal, they may punish and/or blame themselves. Dr. Sarkis has seen it all: as a specialist in toxic behavior and personality disorders, she is on the front lines with survivors. Healing from Toxic Relationships helps survivors to understand the underpinnings of toxic behavior and how to move forward, tackling everything from getting self-esteem back, self-care, how to avoid toxic relationships in the future, and more.

Dr. Sarkis' 10 Essential Steps are less of a one?size?fits?all approach and more of an accessible framework for healing, one step at a time:
1. Block Contact
2. Forget Closure
3. Forgive Yourself
4. Establish Boundaries
5. Talk to a Professional
6. Practice Self?Care
7. Reconnect
8. Grieve
9. Look outward
10. Prevent: Keeping Toxic People Away

Anyone who is in a toxic relationship - whether it's with a romantic partner, colleague, family member, or friend - deserves a way out and a path forward. Dr. Sarkis offers help and hope.

Dr. Stephanie Moulton Sarkis is the author of five self-help books on the subject of ADHD in adults. Dr. Sarkis is an American Mental Counseling Association Diplomate and Clinical Specialist in Child and Adolescent Counseling (one of 20 in the US), National Certified Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Qualified LMHC Supervisor, and Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator and Circuit Civil Court Mediator. She is also a blogger for the Huffington Post and Psychology Today. She has a private practice in Tampa, Florida.

Comments

Readers will appreciate the practicality of the guide, which distills its insights into easily digestible enumerated lists (e.g., the five types of boundaries, the six strategies for addressing insecure attachment styles) and detailed 'check-ins' that help with self-assessment of such questions as 'Do you have anger control issues?' and 'Is your relationship codependent?' The result is a thorough program for healing from abuse.
