How does defaming an abusive narcissist in his professional life affect him?
Narcissists are addicted to narcissistic suppy.
Narcissistic Supply (NS) includes attention, fame, notoriety, adulation, fear, applause, approval. It is a mixed bag. If the narcissist gets attention -- positive or negative -- it constitutes NS. If he can manipulate people or influence them -- positively or negatively -- it qualifies as NS.
Even quarrelling with people constitutes NS. Perhaps not the fighting itself -- but the ability to influence other people, to induce feelings in them, to manipulate them emotionally, to make them do something or refrain from doing it.

Is there any way to get back an emotionally abusive narcissist who was once in your life but has 'discarded' you from theirs?
Be disrespectful to yourself and shower hm/her with exaggerated respect. Humiliate yourself and worship the narcissist. Be his/her loyal slave. You have the choice to either r…espect the narcissist or yourself, because you can't respect both of you at the same time. Choose wisely. Please don't do yourself a disservice by trying to get a narcissist back into your life. You answered your own question...they dicarded you from theirs...just as they will continue to do with either you or others. You are worth much more than that. That person will not respect you or give you the love you deserve. Why would you want to re-introduce an abusive narcissist into your life? Count your blessings for having gotten rid of him! (MORE)
In Child Safety
Childhood sexual abuse may result in mental health problems of various kinds but is not always the case. I was molested several times as a small child. I am not a narcis…sistic but maybe it contributed to me staying with my narcissistilc husband for 25 years before I got out. Mickert I would say narcissism is started by child abuse. Depression is more apt to happen or withdrawal from society. The quicker one can get help once they learn of the sexual abuse the better chance that child will have with the rest of their lives. Being sexually abused will stay with the person the rest of their lives and it's important to openly discuss it when something is bothering you, with a friend, family member or a psychologist or psychiatrist. It's important the person realizes it is not their fault! Pathological narcissism is a complex phenomenon whose etiology is not entirely clear yet. (MORE)
What type of professional mental health counseling is recommended for victims of narcissistic abuse?
I was in a seventeen-year relationship with an abusive narcissist and was subsequently diagnosed with chronic and severe PTSD. I had the good fortune to be treated by an exce…llent psychotherapist with expertise in trauma. EMDR was used in our sessions and I found it to be remarkably beneficial. (MORE)
Children start to hate, and want to hurt their parents when they do that, but they cant. No one likes to be hurt. It destoys them physically and most important, mentally. They…'re self esteem is demolished, and they tend to grow up as child abusers themselves. If you EVER see sure of signs of child abuse, report to their teacher, principle, or quite frankly the police. Hope this will help. (MORE)
