Children of Narcissists
Being raised by a narcissistic parent can have a profound impact on a child's emotional and psychological well-being. Children of narcissists may feel any of the following: insecure and in need of approval, that their personal space and emotions are not respected, that they're failing to live up to impossible standards, forced to care for their parent's emotional needs, and difficulty developing a strong sense of self.
Intersectionality in psychotherapy is a framework that acknowledges and addresses the complex and interconnected social identities, experiences, and systems of oppression that individuals may face. Applying an intersectional lens to psychotherapy helps create a more inclusive and effective therapeutic approach. It recognizes that an individual's identity and social context are integral to their mental health and well-being and that addressing these complex intersections is crucial for providing holistic and empowering mental health care.
