How narcissistic abuse causes identity disturbance in children. (Prof. Vaknin)
An identity disturbance can be conceptualized as a deficit or inability to maintain one or more major components of identity. These components include a sense of continuity over time, emotional commitment to representations of self, role relationships, core values and self-standards, development of a meaningful world view, and recognition of one's place in the world.
