Narcissistic Personality Disorder Statistics

Why They are Unjust to Victims

Written by Randi Fine, Narcissistic Abuse Expert

Narcissistic Abuse Awareness and Guidance with Randi Fine

The reporting of narcissistic personality disorder statistics vary greatly. That is because there is no true way to track the disorder in those who have it. A more accurate study of its prevalence could be accomplished through the tracking of those who have suffered its abuse, but because these people do not have a "diagnosable disorder", that is not likely to happen any time soon.

It never fails to amaze me that when learning of my professional platform, at least one out of every four or five people I talk to report having either suffered narcissistic abuse or knowing someone who has.

Narcissistic abuse has reached epidemic proportions. Awareness of it has skyrocketed in the last ten years. Those who have suffered the enduring effects of it for years now have a wealth of resources to identify the source of their pain. Sadly the mental health community at large has yet to acknowledge how serious and widespread the narcissistic abuse problem is.

As an NPD abuse coach worldwide I modestly estimate that hundreds of thousands of people (if not millions) have had their lives destroyed by the narcissistic personality disordered. Children all over the world are consistently targeted by predatory parents who use and abuse them. They are deprived of their right to thrive.
