Gaslighting is a horrible form of psychological manipulation and control. It's characterized by a manipulator causing a victim to question their own judgement, memory and sanity.

Gaslighting is a threatening phenomena that can happen both in personal relationships and in the workplace. It can have severe consequences, especially if it continues over a long period of time.
