Timing. This article was sent to our team from several listeners of the show. It does not diagnose anyone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It simply highlights in pointed detail the hurt and pain caused by a highly narcissistic mother. As we posted more information about this we expected a bit of backlash. We received nothing but thanks from people all over the globe.

Jaime Grace joins us from his counseling practice in Portugal to discuss his work and his own maternal relationship that spawned this article.

How many of you have felt triggered reading and hearing about the Harvey Weinstein allegations? Many of our listeners have. We have. We support the #metoo movement spearheaded by actress Alyssa Milano and have a very powerful discussion with host Kristin Sunanta Walker, Melanie Vann, and Melissa Richards about sexual misconduct and abuse.

We’ve learned that while the abuser and society may wish to paint those who come forward as people who:

Can’t seem to “move on” or “let things go”

Are vitriolic

Are unfair

Are “crazy”

Are only women

This is simply not the case. Uncomfortable topics need to be discussed. Every victim and then survivor of sexual harassment has their own journey to recovery. As you evolve, your voice and understanding of what you experienced changes. It does not disappear.

Being quiet supports the abuser not the abused. It also supports those who enable and act as accomplices to the abusers.

This is not gender specific.

The days of “men are just men” are over.

For Good.

Thank you for joining us on this poignant and deeply personal show.

Thanks to Bree Bonchay, LCSW for calling June 1st the date of World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day. It was important for our host, Kristin Walker, to interview the friends that brought this awareness to Mental Health News Radio: Andrea Schneider and Christine Louis de Canonville (also Michele Mallon who could not join us for this interview). We’ve shared this walk for many years before we knew each other and then together the past 4 years. A whole lot of healing has gone on for each of us and for listeners of our shows.

Please visit Christine’s website here for more information about her and her work.

Please visit Andrea’s website here for more information about her and her work.

Join us as we talk about what this day means for us, our friendship, and the thousands of people that have reached out for help upon finding our writing, hearing a podcast, being a part of a training session, or bumping into us on the street!

An in-depth and candid discussion with Christine Louis de Canonville, B.A. Hons; MIACP; MTCI; MPNLP, CMH; CHyp. Christine has been a Psychotherapist and Supervisor of mental health professionals for over 20 years. She worked in the trauma unit of a Psychiatric hospital, and worked specifically with victims of narcissistic abuse in her private practice.

During my own research after a horrendous work experience with a disordered and malignant narcissist, I was referred to Christine as the expert to have on Mental Health News Radio Network. Christine joined me the day after Thanksgiving 2014 from Dublin, Ireland to discuss her book, her work with therapists and survivors, and her hopes to educate the public about these dangerous and toxic individuals. I am so honored to have her on the show.

This is such a hot topic that the seven days after we posted information on our social media outlets to pre-advertise the show, Christine had thousands of new downloads from the Americas for the first chapter of her book and 20,000 new visitors to her site www.narcissisticbehavior.net.

ChristineCanonville_primary_photo-v2 BOOK COVEROur most requested guest returns to discuss the term NO CONTACT in relation to Narcissistic Abuse. Author and therapist Christine Louis de Canonville is back to discuss No Contact and Low Contact with Cluster B personality types.

Christine’s shows are downloaded well into the thousands every month and she’s quickly become the go-to expert when it comes to educating anyone working in and with the field of behavioral health about the subject of narcissistic personality disorder. Before we air any show we take the temperature of our listeners to find out which questions come up repeatedly. Lately we’ve been inundated with requests around what it means to extricate yourself from a toxic relationship and how to do this safely (emotionally and physically). Sometimes it does involve some “trickery” on your part. Please enjoy our latest and, again, be prepared to take notes. Christine’s advice around this topic is invaluable.
