[Episode 93 of The Intentional Clinician Podcast]
Paul Krauss MA LPC and Joshua Nave MS LMSW talk about gaslighting, control, abuse, and power dynamics in relationships (domestic violence), as well as in groups, organizations, and society at large. The two define the abusers’ use of power, abuse, gaslighting, and other forms of control, some of the ways they do so to maintain control in a relationship, and how frequently the abusers see themselves as “victims” to justify their behavior. Joshua and Paul explore this from a perspective that seeks cultural competency and understanding. Of course, there are various factors and ways of “framing” these topics depending on one’s culture of origin and background.
Later on, Joshua Nave and Paul Krauss talk about how to take back one’s voice after being mistreated, subjugated, or “gaslit” by someone or something trying to maintain control over you.
