Gaslighting in the Workplace

​Gaslighting is a form of persistent manipulation, marginalization and invalidation that causes the victim to doubt her or himself, and to ultimately lose one's own sense of objective perception, identity, and self-worth. A gaslighter's statements and accusations are often deliberate falsehoods, unsubstantiated exaggerations, negative judgments, and/or personal attacks.
