What is the Reactive Defense Response? – Narcissist Apocalypse Q&A

Play episode

Brandon discusses Reactive Defense & the Reactive Defense Response, why it’s significant, and how it’s manipulated by abusers to shift blame onto their victims. You’ll learn how these tactics are used to frame the abuser as the innocent party, manipulate victims into feeling guilt and shame, and even blackmail victims. We also shine a light on the widespread misconception of mutual abuse, the importance of recognizing signs of Reactive Defense, and Coercive Control as a whole. Join us as we navigate through these challenging topics, providing clarity and support along the way.
