Triangle Support Group for Verbal, Mental, and Emotional Abuse

Dr. Doug Waldruff will be co-organizing and hosting The Triangle Support Group for Verbal, Mental and Emotional Abuse. This group meets once per month and will focus on creating a safe space for survivors of narcissistic abuse to talk and get support from each other, to find understanding, connection and strategies to assist in coping with, leaving and recovering from this type of abuse. We had 20 members at our last meeting and the group is adding new members all the time. Issues such as setting boundaries, understanding trauma bonding and gas lighting are examples of topics we cover. In order to attend this group you need to go to and request to join The Triangle Support Group for Verbal, Mental and Emotional Abuse. We will be meeting the 4th Monday of every month .

For security reasons, meeting times and other details for this group will only be available once you have joined the MeetUp group.
