The TAR Network is thrilled to announce the upcoming Scars to STARs Summit 2024, a groundbreaking online event dedicated to empowering survivors of toxic and abusive relationships. This pivotal virtual summit, scheduled for May 31, 2024, promises to provide invaluable insights and tools for those seeking to overcome the challenges posed by narcissistic abuse and reclaim their lives.

What is a STAR?

A STAR is a Survivor of a Toxic Abusive Relationship. The journey from enduring scars inflicted by toxic relationships to becoming a STAR is profound and transformative. It’s about recognizing one’s strength, reclaiming one’s story, and emerging resilient and empowered.

The Importance of the Scars to STARs Summit

Founded by Dr. Jamie Huysman, a renowned expert in the field, the TAR Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to addressing the impact of toxic relationships through global awareness and targeted interventions. The Scars to STARs Summit is one of the Network’s key initiatives, offering a platform for healing, learning, and personal growth.

Dr. Jamie Huysman coined the name of the Summit from “Scars to STARS” many years ago. He believes that all therapists and their clients enter the energy of the healing process through the scars accumulated throughout life’s journey. It is through these scars that we become self-aware, transform, and find self-love. By leaning into this process with self-awareness, much like NIKE, the Goddess of Victory, we reparent ourselves and always remember to “Just Do It,” realizing that we are not the trauma-bonded, beaten-down victims of an emotionally abusive person. No, today we realize that we are STARs—Survivors of Toxic Abusive Relationships.

Why This Summit Matters

For anyone who has experienced the trauma of a toxic, abusive relationship, the path to healing can feel overwhelming and isolating. The Scars to STARs Summit is designed to provide a supportive, understanding environment where survivors can find the resources, encouragement, and community they need to reclaim their lives. This summit is a beacon of hope and empowerment, emphasizing that every step towards healing is a triumph of the spirit.

Attendees will gain access to strategies and support systems designed to foster effective healing and recovery. The summit features talks and panel discussions led by leading experts who specialize in understanding and treating narcissistic behavior. These sessions aim to educate, empower, and energize participants on their recovery journey.
