Overview / Abstract:

Gaslighting is a 1-hour online continuing education (CE) course that describes a very widespread phenomenon involving an abnormal pattern of behavior, known colloquially as “gaslighting.”

Gaslighting has been insufficiently studied and is rarely mentioned in classrooms, abnormal psychology textbooks, or medical literature, Yet, individuals in intimate relationships, in the workplace, in social media, in politics, and even in governments have displayed the behaviors of gaslighting. Our emphasis in this course necessarily will be on individuals' behaviors, the perpetrators and targets, and the typical consequences which appear in those targets. In addition, we will discuss the experts' suggested effective strategies to cope with the perpetrators' efforts, It is important for all of us to alert and inform citizens to be aware that gaslighting does indeed occur in the larger societal arenas as well.
