Post-Separation Abuse and Coercive Control – Narcissist Apocalypse Q&A

Play episode

For many abuse survivors, leaving an abusive relationship doesn’t stop the abuse. That’s the haunting reality of post-separation abuse and coercive control, which we are exploring in this episode. We expose the many ways abusers continue to exercise control post-separation, from subtle gaslighting tactics to more blatant ways like legal abuse, smear campaigns, stalking, harassment, and weaponizing children.

In the second segment of our discussion, we discuss how legal proceedings are manipulated to intimidate and control. Moreover, we shed light on the financial implications of post-separation abuse, illustrating how access to bank accounts, credit cards, and child support payments can be manipulated to maintain control.
