The Gaslight Effect

The term gaslight comes from a 1938 play that was later made into the iconic film starring Ingrid Bergman. In the story, the character Bella is made to feel like she is losing her mind by a manipulative husband who feeds her false information. People who are gaslighted doubt their sanity and lose a sense of identity. Here are some primers on gaslighting.
