Narcissism, Love Bombing, Gaslighting… What Does It All Mean?

CW: This episode contains discussion of domestic abuse. If you, or someone you know, is in immediate danger, call 000.

Dr Amelia Kelley, co-author of What I Wish I Knew: Surviving and Thriving After an Abusive Relationship, joins Cam and Ali in the bathroom to offer advice from years of experience working with survivors of domestic abuse.
