The Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery Podcast

Nov 3, 2020

In this week’s episode, I want to talk about what exactly a narcissist is, and what tool is used to identify narcissistic personality disorder. We tend to wrongly label narcissists as those who take lots of selfies or those who are rude to us, and by doing that, we are not helping the real victims of narcissistic abuse. 
What You Will Learn In This Episode:
•The difference between being a narcissist and being obnoxious
•How being a victim of Narcissistic Personality Disorder affected me
•Are narcissistic personalities born or created?
•The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) nine traits to detect Narcissistic Personality Disorder
•The importance of educating the society regarding NPD and helping its victims
If someone you know ticks the boxes of at least five of the nine traits described by the DSM, the person has NPD. This method might help you get some reassurance of what you are dealing with and that it is not your fault.
