Have you ever questioned your own sanity or judgment in a healthcare setting? Do you constantly feel self-doubt?
Today, we discuss gaslighting, a form of psychological manipulation that can leave you doubting your self-worth and reality, particularly in healthcare.
Our guest, Dr. Tracy O’Connell, is a radiologist, coach, educator, Certified Expressive Writing™ Facilitator, and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator. Together with Dr. O'Connell, we examine the power dynamics and moral injury that can lead to gaslighting in healthcare relationships, and how it is often used as a form of covert domination. We also talk about the tactics used by psychopaths to gain the upper hand in conversations and share practical advice on how to address and overcome gaslighting in medical training. Learn to build social and emotional intelligence, trust, and psychological safety to establish boundaries and walk away when you feel gaslighted.
“Gaslighting is a dance that requires two people or two entities. It requires the gaslighter, who needs to be right at all costs. And it requires a gaslightee, somebody who absolutely needs the approval of the gaslighter in order to have the dance.” - Tracy O’Connell MD
