Simply put, gaslighting is a form of manipulation that is done intentionally in relationships where emotional abuse is present. The goal of gaslighting is to make someone question the reality of the abuse they are experiencing within the relationship. This is done while the gaslighting partner denies, ignores, minimizes, or deflects their partner’s concerns.16 September 2021
