My ex once told me he wanted a Junior League woman during the day and a hooker in the bedroom at night.  I was expected to fit both of those descriptions.

“The author also includes pragmatic advice on how to get a divorce, and on helping victims of narcissistic abuse, and their children, recover. The types of therapies, including some newer modalities, are described. Spiritual aspects are nicely considered. In other words, the book offeres not only nuts-and-bolts help, but hope.”

As a psychologist, I see both men and women in abusive relationships with narcissists, but they inevitably blame themselves. Only after time (and often therapy), do they realize that ‘they’ are not the problem. The road to health and rebuilding can be ardurous and long. Laura Charanza describes the abuse and situations in a uniquely insighfully way. Ms. Charanza, as an author; has a style that is easy to read and relate to. For someone who is, or thinks they may be, in a relationship with a narcissist, this is a must-read. This is one of the best books I have read on surviving a relationship with a narcissist.

with Laura Charanza and Renowned Psychotherapist Dr. Les Carter

Join Laura and Dr. Les Carter for further insight on narcissism and its victims on their You Tube channel, Surviving Narcissism.  Dr. Les Carter, a renowned psychotherapist,  and Laura Charanza, a two-time narcissistic abuse survivor, break down what narcissism is and what it takes to leave a toxic relationship.

High control; low empathy; entitlement; manipulation…these (and more) are primary traits in a narcissist. Constant exposure to a narcissist’s exploits can be exhausting, bringing out the worst in you. So how do you stay sane?  Do you leave?  Is so, how?

Surviving Narcissism offers tutorials that explain how to maintain healthiness when faced with the aggravations of life with a narcissist. Narcissists are thieves who wish to rob you of your Self, but armed with wisdom and insight, you can incorporate proven ways to stay true to your lifestyle goals.  You can learn to get back your power, purpose and peace after narcissistic abuse.
