Narcissists could use Social Media to publicly humiliate their victim, to spread rumors and lies and to Gaslight them.

One of our visitors had an eye opening experience being attacked on Social Media. Their Narcissistic Ex used Social Media to spread lies and rumors. Then the Flying Monkeys went to town attacking the Victim. It is also not unheard of, for a Narcissist to have multiple social media accounts and use different personas to attack and Gaslight their victim.

The victim was left dazed, confused and emotionally battered. The Narcissist probably had a huge grin and was likely oh so proud of themselves for emotionally devastating their target.

In the Narcissist’s mind, the Victim “deserved it”.

Gaslighting, it’s effects and how to protect yourself and others. New Workshop on 24th June 2016 by Christine Louis De Canonville

One of the most insidious and dangerous tools that a narcissist holds in their Armoury of abuse is a behavioural technique called “Gaslighting”.

Click on this line to visit Christine’s website to read her post titled “What is Gaslighting“.

 Gaslighting is a most subtle and cunning Machiavellian behaviour used against the victim, where “nothing is ever as it seems”.
The Gaslighting Effect is truly a convoluted dance that involves mind games that all narcissists use for conditioning, grooming, indoctrinating, controlling, and altering their victim’s reality. The intention is to, in a systematic way, target the victim’s mental equilibrium, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Eventually they are no longer able to function in an independent way and believe that they are going mad.

On 24th June 2016 I’m running a workshop on Gaslighting, it’s effects and how to protect yourself and others.
In this workshop we shall take an in-depth look at:
1.    Gaslighting: as a form of psychological warfare used against the  victim in a deliberate and progressive way.
2.    Expose how the “Narcissistic Puppet Master’s” lead the relationship through different phases; The Idealisation Stage, Devaluation Stage, and  finally, the Discarding Stage.
3.    Understanding the Plight of the Gaslighting Effect, and how it effects the victim.
4.    Learn the warning “Red Flags” for staying safe.
5.    Do a forensic analysis of a case study for understanding the    narcissists subtle covert aggression.

This workshop is being held in Dublin, Ireland on June 24th 2016

“WHAT IS GASLIGHTING?” (THE NARCISSIST’S COVERT METHODS OF INTERPERSONAL CONTROL). Upcoming workshop facilitated by Christine Louis de Canonville

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse used by narcissists in order to instill in their victim’s an extreme sense of anxiety and confusion, to the point where they no longer trust their own memory, perception or judgment.


The techniques used in “Gaslighting” by the narcissist are similar to those used in brainwashing, interrogation, and torture that have been used in psychological warfare by intelligence operative, law enforcement and other forces for decades. The intention is to, in a systematic way, target the victim’s mental equilibrium, self confidence, and self esteem so that they are no longer able to function in an independent way, giving the narcissist full control over the victim.

This Gaslighting workshop is by Christine Louis de Canonville, who is an expert in this field.
