A new video and infographic: What is gaslighting?
Have a look and you’ll learn much more, but here are a few bits of information to give you some context: 1.) “Gaslighting” is an abusive psychological manipulation tactic. 2.) The term comes from a 1938 play called “Gas Light” in which a man deceives his wife to cover his crimes. 3.) The term has seen a spike in searches and mentions over the last year—especially in the lead-up to the U.S. presidential election and in the aftermath—so we decided to help explain it.
