Bestselling author tells keys to identify disturbed people, minimize their damage and manage your life
Modern permissiveness and loss of family structure let disturbed characters reach adulthood without proper social training. In a book meant both for the general public and for professionals, Dr. George Simon explains:
• How most disturbed characters think
• Habitual behaviors the disturbed use to avoid responsibility and to manipulate, deceive, and exploit others.
• Why victims in relationships with disturbed characters do not get help they need from traditional therapies.
• A straightforward guide to recognizing and understanding all personality types most likely to undermine relationships.
• A new framework for making sense of the crazy world many find themselves in when there’s a disturbed character in their lives.
• Concrete principles for engaging disturbed characters that promote responsibility and positive change
• Tactics for both lay persons and therapists to lessen the chances for victimization and empower those who would otherwise be victims in their relationships with disturbed characters.
“I’ve not read a more eye opening book.… If you suspect someone is manipulating you, please read this most valuable book.”
—Carnelian, a reader in New England
