What’s wrong with me? Why I can’t I leave this toxic relationship?

A trauma bond is a fear-based connection between abusers and victims. Combine that with the mental confusion of cognitive dissonance, and the victim is stuck.

In this podcast episode, we’ll examine why this powerful dynamic makes it so difficult to leave. We’ll also cover the five types of narcissists and the difference between overt and covert narcissism.

If you missed the live webinar with Dr. Milstead, copies of the replay are now available.
