Shedding the Light on Gaslighting with Dr. Deborah Vinall

When You’re With a Gaslighter

Do you have reason to doubt what you hear from your spouse? Have they ever given you any reason to question your perception of your relationship? That’s called gaslighting, and it’s a form of manipulation and control that can have you questioning your own memories. Deborah Vinall is a Doctor of Psychology, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a certified EMDR and Brainspotting practitioner. She is the author of Gaslighting: A Step-by-Step Recovery Guide and she joins us today to guide those facing a potentially gaslighting spouse toward awareness and healing.
