Q & A – Will the school recognise NPD abuse?

Narcissistic abuse can take many forms, including emotional, psychological, and physical abuse. It can be challenging for school counselors or coaches to recognize the signs of NPD abuse, as the abuser may be skilled at hiding their behavior and manipulating their victims.

However, there are some signs and behaviors that may indicate a child is experiencing NPD abuse. These may include:

  • A sudden change in behavior or mood
  • Low self-esteem or self-confidence
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Social withdrawal or isolation
  • A reluctance to participate in activities they once enjoyed
  • Fear of expressing their feelings or opinions
  • A tendency to blame themselves for problems or conflicts

If a school counselor or coach notices any of these signs, it is essential to investigate further and seek professional help. They may also want to consider reporting their concerns to the appropriate authorities, such as child protective services.

It is essential to remember that NPD abuse is a serious issue that can have lasting effects on a child’s mental health and well-being. By recognizing the signs and taking appropriate action, counselors and coaches can help protect children from this type of abuse and ensure they get the support and help they need to heal.
