New York, NY, 10/21: Domestic violence is always devastating, but perhaps the worst epidemic is the psychological violence inflicted by someone who hides behind a covert guise. Unbeknownst to the outer world, their poor victims suffer in nightmarish silence. One such traumatizing bout of violence is that imposed by those suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Abusive narcissists lack empathy and spare no ploy to make life hell for their partners and their nearest and dearest. Fortunately for survivors, #1 Amazon bestselling author Shahida Arabi has released her latest book “Becoming the Narcissist’s Nightmare” which shares exclusive insights to help the survivors of narcissistic abuse to heal, thrive and lead a positive life.
Published by SCW Archer Books, the book was launched on Amazon in April and has since then been the #1 Amazon bestseller in the Personality Disorder category for six consecutive months. It has only recently become available in paperback and is currently being made into an audiobook by Audible. Arabi’s efforts are highly commendable in this area, since for very long, little was known about those in a toxic relationship with a narcissistically abusive partner. This book boldly sheds light on a form of domestic violence not otherwise explored in the current discourse, weaving in insights from not just survivors but also mental health professionals and experts in the field.
“People suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder manipulate and devalue their partners on a chronic basis, leading to an oppressive form of emotional and psychological abuse that society is just beginning to learn more about. Unfortunately, no diagnostic manual or psychology class right now offers a comprehensive discussion about the facets of narcissistic abuse which continue to affect millions around the world. The worst part? Malignant narcissists – those on the far end of the narcissistic with antisocial traits – are usually unwilling to attend the necessary treatment. There isn’t enough information out there in domestic violence discourses about the manipulative tactics abusive narcissists use or how to heal from them. The partners of narcissists are often forced to suffer in alienation while the narcissist continues the abuse cycle. ‘Becoming the Narcissist’s Nightmare’ is here to change that conversation and start a revolution – in this book I want to offer survivors a rare blend of survivor insights and expert opinions that will enable them to heal from the mayhem of emotional violence – a violence that is rarely spoken about,” stated Shahida Arabi while discussing her book.
The book will help narcissistic abuse survivors with:
- Warning signs of such abusive behavior, covert manipulation strategies used by narcissists, including the subtle signs of the disorder that are not as easily noticeable.
- Motives behind the abuse and techniques to resist narcissist’s manipulation.
- Answers to why the survivors stay with the narcissist even after being abused for long.
- Understanding how the brain gets us addicted to these toxic partners.
- Conventional and alternative modes of healing to detach and recover from addiction to the narcissistic partner.
- Ways to rewrite narratives which abusers write for the partners so that the latter can reconnect with his/her authentic self and purpose.
- Tips on how to rebuild a better empowered and victorious life after narcissistic abuse.
“Becoming the Narcissist’s Nightmare” has garnered much praise from narcissistic abuse survivors as well as mental health practitioners for being able to bridge the missing link between research and real-life experience in emotional and psychological violence.
“Outstanding, comprehensive, thoughtful book for survivors! I will be sending my clients to read this book to help them have a fantastic, thorough understanding of narcissistic abuse recovery. Shahida Arabi skillfully writes from the standpoint of a survivor to a place of thriving…she blends evidence-based research, with survivor stories and integrative healing concepts that are paramount for trauma recovery from the unique aftermath of narcissistic abuse…she speaks from the heart, from science, and from spirit…she knows how to translate for survivors the path of healing, triumph, and freedom.” – Andrea Schneider, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
“This book covers the complete experience of: encountering, surviving, and healing from an emotional terrorist. Ahead of her time, she has forged the way for us – victims and mental health professionals -to start acknowledging this hidden epidemic; and to begin the lonely, painful process of helping ourselves and others survive the reality of personality-disordered relationship trauma.” – Monica M. White, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
At present, the book is available in print and e-book editions and will soon be available as an audiobook by Audible. Arabi is currently working on two new books on narcissistic abuse, to be released by Thought Catalog Books later this year.
