Welcome to A Date With Darkness Podcast. This podcast is dedicated to those who have been hurt by love and abuse, through their relationships with narcissistic people. The purpose of the podcast is to deepen the understanding of hurtful and traumatic relationships which have been a source of unspoken pain and trauma. In the episodes, I will be chatting with various experts in various fields to provide education, tips, resources, and information for those who are survivors of abusive relationships. I will combine my expertise of forensics, domestic violence, and work in various mental health fields to have an intimate discussion with you about abusive relationships, characteristics of dangerous and manipulative people, how to move beyond the victim role, learn to love and heal from the wounds of toxic relationships.

In this episode, Dr. Jones has an intimate discussion about her own personal journey with hurtful relationships, and how she was able to heal and reover from them. Dr. Jones explores why she is personally invested in helping people heal from painful and abusive relationships. While her toxic relationships were costly, Dr. Jones describes how a healthy support system including her therapist and her mentor and reading self-help books were extremely helpful in overcoming her trauma. The books that were helpful to Dr. Jones were both written by Susan Anderson and include: Black Swan: The Twelve Lessons of Abandonment Recovery and The Abandonment Recovery Workbook.
