The Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery Podcast

Aug 22, 2023

Incorrect diagnoses lead to incorrect treatments. This worries me because I often see individuals who've endured narcissistic abuse being wrongly labelled with Borderline Personality Disorder. In this episode, I'll talk about how experts diagnose personality disorders and explain why there's a frequent mix-up, causing those with Complex PTSD to be misdiagnosed.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Why Complex PTSD looks like Borderline Personality Disorder

  • What traits a doctor will look for when diagnosing personality disorders

  • How to ensure you’re treatment is addressing the right underlying reasons

We need to get curious about what you’re going through. Remember, trauma doesn't have to define your life forever. However, if misdiagnosed, you might receive the wrong treatment. I'll explain why misdiagnoses happen and offer insights on how to guide your healing journey towards the right path.
