Are Many Victims Of Narcissistic Abuse Ahead Of Psychologists In Knowledge Of Narcissistic Personality Disorder?
Absolutely. Sadly, in order to fully understand narcissistic abuse, a person has to experience it.
Understanding the concept on an intellectual level is one thing.
In my opinion, it’s akin to dropping out of high school in the 11th grade. You learned a lot, and you have pretty basic knowledge.
But your education is still incomplete.
When I first sought help to heal after being diagnosed with Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome and Complex-PTSD, I was shocked to discover the lack of qualified mental health professionals.
Plenty of people claimed to be qualified. But to be perfectly honest, they were freaking clueless.
Hell, I knew far more about the subject than the so-called experts I encountered.
I got the impression that their education had been limited to reading a few articles about NPD from a psychology journal and nothing more.
Sadly, every counselor I went to had no more knowledge about narcissistic abuse than my dog.
And she died last year.
I’m not trying to make light of a very serious problem. I’m simply trying to make a point.
Mental health professionals who claim to be qualified to treat victims of narcissistic abuse, but are very much unqualified, do even more damage to victims!!
Some type of reform needs to be enacted in order to stop this problem from continuing.
As an Author on Quora, I’ve had the enormous privilege of communicating with survivors from around the world.
(Quora deserves a Nobel Prize for doing its part to raise awareness. High-five Quora!!)
Narcissistic Abuse knows no race, religion, social status, gender, or nationality.
It affects people from all walks of life.
You’d think that alone would be reason enough for countries to get serious about combating this epidemic.
With the exception of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, most countries leave it to survivors to spread awareness.
Obviously knowledge alone is not enough. Until the leaders of every country in the world realize the importance of addressing this epidemic, victims will continue to suffer.
