Power, Abuse, Gaslighting, and Control in Relationships (Domestic Violence) and Society (Environmental Trauma) with Joshua Nave LMSW [Episode 93]
Paul Krauss MA LPC and Joshua Nave MS LMSW discuss power, abuse, control, and gaslighting within relationships (domestic violence), but also within cultural entities, organizations, and society as a whole. The pair define power, abuse, gaslighting and control tactics used by abusers, some of the ways that they use them to keep control in a relationship, and how often times the abusers view them themselves as "victims" to rationalize their behavior. Of course, depending on one's culture of origin and background, there are many considerations and ways of "framing" these topics--and Joshua and Paul discuss this from a viewpoint that seeks cultural competency and understanding.
Later on Joshua Nave and Paul Krauss discuss how to reclaim one's voice if you have been abused, controlled, or "gaslit" by a person or an entity that was attempting to keep power over you.
