What is TAR Network?

TAR Network is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to bringing worldwide awareness and Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) treatment to those whose entire reality has been warped and distorted – and who have been relegated as “collateral damage” – after being raised by a toxic parent, being in a relationship with a toxic partner, being a citizen of a country run by a toxic autocratic leader, or by being the victim of a hostile and/or toxic work environment.

The vision of the TAR Network is to educate, empower, and energize people going through or emerging from Toxic Abusive Relationships (TAR) and/or parental alienation through the support of the TAR Network and its affiliates.
