Episode #16: Shedding Light on Gaslighting, Understanding Implications in the Context of Physiological Abuse
Today we are going to touch on a word. A word that is creeping into the psychological world that actually has an interesting history as well as a clinical context. You’ve likely heard it in session with clients, on social media, in memes, in casual conversation and I actually think there is a song out about it called “Gas Lighter” by the chicks. But first I think we need to talk about what the word means. Gaslighting is the act of an individual intentionally triggering another by means of making them feel incapable or out-of-control. In this show, we are going to talk about gaslighting in the context of psychological abuse. Our objective is to educate listeners on how to identify the different types of gaslighting seen in emotionally abusive relationships. We will also identify therapeutic approaches that are most effective in helping individuals identify unhealthy relationship patterns and ways to help individuals cope with the after effects of a traumatic relationship. We will also look at long-term effects of emotional abuse and resources available to victims. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, gaslighting develops over time and typically goes undetected.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline identifies 6 different types. Countering, Withholding, Trivializing, Denial, Diverting, and Stereotyping. We will dive into these various ways in which a perpetrator uses them to cause emotional harm to an individual with our specialist today! Today we have Christy Yerk-Smith she is a licensed professional counselor in private practice in Allentown, PA. She comes to us with 26 years in the field and specializes in infertility, chronic pain & illness, addiction codependency, gambling and is also a clinical supervisor for individuals seeking licensure. Welcome to the show Christy!!!
