Hi, I'm Dr. Rhonda Freeman from Neuroinstincts!
Welcome to Neurosagacity, where I host my online courses.
I created the course, Using Neuroscience to Accelerate Recovery to give you a strong foundation of not only what can happen to the brain with regard to narcissistic abuse, but self-care approaches to address those changes.
You will receive insightful content, quizzes, and an exploration into brain functioning related to narcissistic abuse.
And ... you can ask me questions along the way in the discussion sections of each course video.
If you are in therapy - great! This course can be a helpful adjunct to your treatment and even help your therapist better understand potential neurobiological changes.
I understand how difficult it can be to disentangle your heart and mind from a partner on the pathological narcissism spectrum. It can feel like your emotions haven't caught up with your thoughts. For example, you know he/she will continue to try to destroy you, yet you can't get them out of your head!
I've been there myself; I know that awful feeling.
The actions of pathological narcissists have a direct impact on our brain functions and can change our mood, behavior, and view of the world.
I'm here to tell you that your pain, stress, and confusion can be transformed through the healing process. Yes, it will require work. And you will need to be careful regarding the type of people you allow in your life - their personality and emotional health matters. That also goes for the mental health professionals you select; their knowledge base regarding abuse and trauma is important.
Before I let you go, a little on my background: I'm a neuropsychologist within a neurology practice. There I am involved in Alzheimer's research, as well as the cognitive evaluation of patients with different neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, brain trauma, dementia).
[Just know, I do not evaluate or treat patients with narcissistic abuse at our neurology practice. I am not a psychotherapist. I provide educational material online only with regard to this topic.]
Wishing you the best ❤
