Neuroscience can open the door to a new set of self-care approaches you can use as you work on your recovery. This 8 day course is for survivors who fell in love with someone on the pathological narcissism spectrum (i.e., narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, & psychopathy).
In your healing journey, it is imperative to understand that certain actions and behavior patterns can actually deepen your pain and contribute to feeling 'stuck'.
No one wants that!
One of the best ways to know how you want to tailor your recovery path is to get information regarding how the brain responds to certain words, activities, experiences, and exposure. This is what this course will do!
Neuroplasticity allows our brain to heal and change, leaving behind many of the emotional wounds caused by narcissistic abuse. Rewiring the brain is possible if you work with it rather than against it. I will teach you ways to work with and care for your brain. Our brain is able to form neuroconnections that have the potential to strengthen the regulation region. Positive neuroplasticity can be central to transforming suffering into growth.
You can do more then just survive narcissistic abuse. By adding neuroscience approaches to your current self care regimen, along with any needed professional interventions, you increase the likelihood of enjoying your life again!
* It may be tempting to try to complete the course in a couple of days, however I strongly advise against this. I recommend you complete no more than one module per day. Allow your brain to assimilate the information, get rest, and give yourself a chance to implement some of the tips.
* Watch my video below, where I share my personal experience of psychopathic abuse.
❀ The Drive Behind my Mission
I feel privileged to share these courses with you, not only as a psychologist, but also as a survivor. The destructive nature of just one individual on the pathological narcissism spectrum can change the course of a person's life.
I have witnessed the undoubted heritability of this condition in action and experienced the agony caused by pathological narcissists in positions of power and within relationships. Living surrounded by toxicity placed me in a unique position to help people not only as a target, victim, and survivor - but also as a doctor.
I fight to raise awareness because being quiet and hoping the best for victims is not an option. I was fortunate - through pain, I found strength and my voice.
I am a licensed psychologist/ neuropsychologist within a neurology practice (since 2001). For over seven years I have shared information regarding narcissists and psychopaths with the public. In 2013 I created Neuroinstincts, a place dedicated to helping survivors of Cluster B Personality Disorder abuse.
I write for Psychology Today and I am a member of the Research Committee with Aftermath: Surviving Psychopathy (a foundation created by Drs. Robert Hare, Paul Babiak, & David Kosson).
Through Neuroinstincts Academy courses, I try to give students a portion of what specialists in this field have as a foundation. The course content is not based solely on one survivor or hearing survivor stories. Rather the material originates from a combination of my work in the area of personality (assessments), training as a neuropsychologist, scientific research reviews, my personal experience as a survivor & target, and evaluations of hundreds of trauma victims and Cluster B personality disordered patients.
There are two courses. One is fully focused on the survivor. He/she is ready to give their attention to their healing and has minimal need to learn more about the pathological narcissist (Caring for the Brain). The other course is for the person who is in need of gaining a stronger foundation in pathological narcissism education and survivor symptoms, as without this foundation it will be more difficult to shift toward the next phase in healing (The Neuroinstincts Survivor).
❤ A little personal info:
I love creating, art, fitness, and dance. I am a proud auntie-mom (i.e., raised my niece & nephew from toddlers due to circumstances similar to the topic I write about online.) I'm also a dog mom of two beautiful 'girls' who have stolen my heart, Sara-Bella & LuLoo.
I hope Neuroinstincts Academy courses help you on your journey.
All my Best,
Dr. Freeman ♡
