A significantly expanded edition of Psychopath Free—containing new chapters, updated content, and real survivor experiences. Have you ever been in a relationship with a psychopath? Chances are, even if you did, you would never know it. Psychopaths are cunning charmers and master manipulators, to the point where you start to accept the most extreme behaviors as normal…Even if it hurts you. All around us, every single day, human beings devoid of empathy are wreaking havoc and destroying lives in the coldest, most heartless ways imaginable. In constant pursuit of money, sex, influence, or simple entertainment, psychopaths will do whatever it takes to gain power over others. They hide behind a veil of normalcy, arranging their friends and partners like pawns in a game of chess. Using false praise and flattery to get what they want, they can lure any unsuspecting target into a relationship. Once hooked, their charming promises spin into mind games and psychological torture. Victims are left devastated and confused, unable to recognize—or even put into words—the nightmare that just took place. Written from the heart, Psychopath Free is the first guide for survivors written by a survivor, offering hope for healing and thriving after psychopathic abuse. Say goodbye to the chaos, self-doubt, and victimization. You are free.

This is the story of a seemingly innocent little boy who grows into a ferocious, conscienceless, ugly monster that destroys and devours everything good and pure that crosses his path. From tender childhood friendships to sweet innocent romances, nothing is immune to the monsters dark spell and insidious nature. This is also a story of survival and hope: survival of intimate partner abuse and hope that one day there will be an end to domestic violence and to the suffering of the silent victims. Twice, I have been a victim (and survivor) of domestic violence/intimate partner abuse in my lifetime. At the age of 18, I was physically abused by my boyfriend who was also 18. He beat me repeatedly and threatened my life in many ways. I was able to escape the relationship but never spoke about it and was determined NEVER to put myself in that type of danger in the future. Twenty years later, at the age of 38, I found myself in another abusive relationship, but I didnt recognize it as abusive because he never assaulted me physically (at first); the abuse was verbal and emotional. The control was overwhelming, and the insidiousness of his abuse slowly took over me and nearly destroyed my spirit and faith in goodness. Today, 18 months after escaping my second abusive relationship, I have vowed to speak. I cannot remain silent. Paula Carrasquillo August 21, 2012

Do you know someone who is overly arrogant, shows an extreme lack of empathy, or exhibits an inflated sense of entitlement? Do they exploit others, or engage in magical thinking? These are all traits of narcissistic personality disorder, and when it comes to dealing with narcissists, it can be difficult to get your point across. So how do you handle the narcissistic people in your life? You might interact with them in social or professional settings, and you might even love one—so ignoring them isn’t really a practical solution. They're frustrating, and maybe even intimidating, but ultimately, you need to find a way of communicating effectively with them. Disarming the Narcissist, Second Edition, will show you how to move past the narcissist's defenses using compassionate, empathetic communication. You'll learn how narcissists view the world, how to navigate their coping styles, and why, oftentimes, it's sad and lonely being a narcissist. By learning to anticipate and avoid certain hot-button issues, you'll be able to relate to narcissists without triggering aggression. By validating some common narcissistic concerns, you'll also find out how to be heard in conversation with a narcissist. This book will help you learn to meet your own needs while side-stepping unproductive power struggles and senseless arguments with someone who is at the center of his or her own universe. This new edition also includes new chapters on dealing with narcissistic women, aggressive and abusive narcissists, strategies for safety, and the link between narcissism and sex addiction. Finally, you'll learn how to set limits with your narcissist and when it's time to draw the line on unacceptable behavior.

A guide to leaving painful, destructive relationships behind—both at home and at work Toxic relationships often come disguised as seemingly normal ones. These subtly destructive relationships are characterized by the slow erosion of self-esteem, a loss of personal identity, or a growing desire to please friends, partners, and family members who are impossible to please. In this uplifting and informative book, transpersonal psychotherapist Avril Carruthers will take a close look at adult relationships to show why we get involved in toxic relationships in the first place, and instruct the reader on how to recognize if they’re involved in one. Once the toxic relationship is identified, the author shows the reader how to begin their journey toward healing and how to meet the world with a new kind of confidence, so that the cycle of toxic relationships can be broken once and for all. What Carruthers teaches is just how possible it can be to learn how to recognize the manipulative or sweetly corrosive partner, the family dynamics that make Christmas and other get-togethers seem like hell, or the nightmare boss who causes daily torment—and that we can learn to leave these painful, destructive patterns behind forever.

I Am Free, the title of this book embodies its core message. For anyone who has the misfortune of being embroiled in a toxic love relationship or family relationship, the narratives shared by other survivors can serve as encouragement that escape is possible. None of the writers sugar coated their experiences or the degree of effort that it took to survive, leave and heal from such traumatic relationships. Time and again, these writers shared that, charmed by their partner, they ignored their inner voices when those early alarm bells rang. Many of these individuals were well-educated, and had successful careers, until... they sank into the quicksand of toxic partnership. These stories are brutally honest and chronicle the careful grooming process so typical of these kinds of unhealthy and damaging relationships. This makes for a challenging read and it is important that they be read as both a cautionary warning and an illuminating light so that others might escape and or avoid the perils that these stories narrate. Review "I'm sure this book will be a powerful guiding light for many people seeking to crawl out of the mire of narcissistic abuse. By providing insight and validation from the stories of other survivors, it will be a powerful force for growth and change in the life of the reader." - Richard Grannon BSc (hons) Author of How To Take Revenge On A Narcissist

It was no easy feat to survive childhood being raised by a diagnosed sociopath father and a mentally-ill mother - especially for a child that leads from her heart. When she turned eighteen, her father called her an "old loser" and told her to leave home. On her own, this adult-child navigates the world with an innate sense of her "oldness" in search of meaning. The writer travels from the Rust Belt to the West Coast to Turkey trying to not only save herself, but the animals and bad men that she attracts along the way. This book highlights a sensitive child, with a strong soul, who grows up to be a confused woman searching for love in damaging men without ever losing track of her inner compass...her Will...her love for animals and her urge to keep expanding. My Sociopath is the first book of its kind to give a revealing look at the making of an Empath and how this sensitive person navigates in a world of Narcissists and Sociopaths. It is a flash of memoir mixed with a new and imaginative look into the deep workings of Sociopaths, Narcissists, and the rarely discussed Empaths. This is not a victim's "loss of love" rant; nor is it a repeat of all the old sociopath traits and checklists that we've all been inundated with. This is a well thought out, innovative, free thinking and spirited version of all the old sociopath books. The writer is constantly analyzing human behaviors and motivations through soul needs of all players and offers fresh advice all along for bettering our existence. You don't have to wait to get to the Healing Section to receive inspirational nudges along the way. The author maintains that none of us are ever truly healed from trauma, but instead, we must focus on our expansion. My Sociopath is infused with splatterings of thoughts from the ancient wisdom writers for more in-depth pondering and to incite our creative flow. Author, Lynna Kivela, goes against traditional and repeated beliefs that Narcissists lack empathy. They do have empathy, but not in the way we're used to seeing. All new "checklists" are given and the author explains her own hypothesis regarding the destructive forces that walk amongst us and why some of us, usually Empaths, are continually absorbed by their damaging energy. All of us are formed into being by what the author conceives as our mother's "Emotional Body." My Sociopath infuses the emotional and mental-workings of all players and instead of a remote view of perpetrator, victim, and enabler, a vulnerable expression of everyone's intense need for love and acceptance is revealed. The author asserts that in order to recover from childhood abuse that results in a life of attracting dysfunction, we must untangle our "emotional body" by examining the patterns in our life that most of us refuse to see, but that we must recognize, so to stop the destruction. You will not only see, but feel, a combination of the author's essence of teacher, healer, creator and a person on a healing journey herself. The writer turns her ideas into well organized lists and easy to read segments with headings from not only the point of being a well trained teacher, but from her personal knowing that trauma victims have a hard time with concentration and focus. She writes about her many days of "looming gray clouds in her mind." My Sociopath is An Empath's Soul Journey Among Sociopath.
