What is DARVO? by Jennifer Freyd, PHD

Deny any wrong doing

Attack back by going on the offense, attacking credibility, intention, character, calling you a liar

Reverse the victim, you into the

Offender, making them the victimized person every time.

This is a manipulative technique to gain power and control over all situations.

As always use discretion when listening to this podcast. I speak about trauma related topics and may be triggering for some.

Mentioned: Dr. Ramani
