Overview:

Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life : <div><b>Combining clinical analysis with psychological profiles of famous narcissists, here is an indispensable guide to recognizing, coping with, and ultimately overcoming the destructive behavior of narcissists.</b><br /> <br /> Everybody needs some healthy narcissism. But in a society obsessed with appearance, wealth, and status, it's easy for problematic narcissists to thrive. Many people who seem to "have it all" are suffering from one of the most common--and overlooked--personality disorders of our time: high level narcissism. Typified by an obsession with perfection, a desperate need for admiration, and a willingness to use and exploit others for personal gain, high level narcissism can spell devastation for anyone who crosses the narcissist's path.<br /> <br /> In <i>Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life</i>, psychotherapist Linda Martinez-Lewi presents an in-depth and supportive plan for identifying, understanding, and dealing with high level narcissistic behavior in those close to you. Martinez-Lewi helps you to liberate yourself from draining personal relationships with narcissists, and shows how to regain a sense of peace, balance, and well-being.<br /> <br /> Drawing on detailed profiles of famous narcissists, including Pablo Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright, Armand Hammer, and Ayn Rand, as well as expertly rendered case studies from her private practice as a psychotherapist, Martinez-Lewi shows how to:<br /> <br /> - understand where narcissistic behavior comes from;<br /> -learn to spot narcissistic traits, even in the early stages of relationships;<br /> - realize why attempting to change a narcissist is fruitless; and<br /> - protect yourself from the narcissist's opportunism, manipulative behavior, and lack of empathy.<br /> &nbsp;</div>
