The Gaslight Effect  explains the long-term effects of repeated gaslighting: an insidious and sometimes covert form of emotional abuse in which a gaslighter undermines and controls another person by deflecting, twisting, and denying their reality. Gaslighting can happen in a romantic relationship, between family members, or at work—but in every case, it leaves you constantly second-guessing yourself, unable to make simple decisions, and destabilized from the constant reality shifts.

The Gaslight Effect Recovery Guide is a tool for personal exploration that will help you identify if you are part of a pattern of emotional abuse and pull yourself out of that dynamic with a few crucial mindset shifts. Through prompts, checklists, quizzes, and guided reflective questions, you will explore past and present relationships, gain the confidence to leave an abusive partner or set boundaries in an unavoidable situation, and heal after gaslighting.  This interactive workbook will help you:

  • Name the Gaslight Effect and identify abuse in any relationship.
  • Heal a relationship or free yourself from a gaslighting dynamic.
  • Learn what makes you vulnerable to gaslighting.
  • Deepen your self-awareness and self-compassion.
  • Expand your capacity to trust yourself and reach out to others for support.

The Gaslight Effect Recovery Guide will help you reveal the truth behind gaslighting interactions, allowing you to cultivate happy, healthy relationships and regain your joy, creativity, and sense of self.
