From grieving a childhood of neglect, to mourning the loss of the rosy-coloured glasses that kept them in a cycle of abuse as adults, grief echoes through the lives of clients who are in, or have left, narcissistic relationships. And processing that grief is a crucial element in their healing.

In this session watch licensed therapist and best-selling author Amy Marlow-MaCoy, LPC and discover how to help clients identify losses of the past, present, and future, and come to terms with the ambiguity of grieving a person or relationship that may never be resolved.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
