George K. Simon
Author of the international bestseller, In Sheep’s Clothing:
Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People

—tells keys to identify the clinically disturbed, 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, bestselling author and psychologist George Simon explains in plain English:

How most disturbed characters think.
-The 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 relevant personality types, especially those 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 many types of disturbed characters.
