Book News
People with borderline or narcissistic personality disorders often make false allegations of abuse or domestic violence during the divorce process and are prone to verbal and physical attacks, kidnapping the children, and refusal to follow court orders. In this book for general readers, Eddy, a lawyer and therapist affiliated with the National Conflict Resolution Center, and Kreger, author of several books on living with a partner or family member with borderline personality disorder (Walking on Eggshells), offer guidelines on dealing with these manipulative behaviors, finding a lawyer, and preparing for the worst, illustrated with real-life examples from Eddy's legal practice. Early chapters review the features of borderline and narcissistic personality disorder and describe the emotional reactions and counter-tactics these soon-to-be ex-spouses will likely display. Later chapters explain today's divorce court culture and give advice on working with experts such as court and private counselors, psychologists, appraisers, and accountants. An appendix offers sample letters to professionals from the authors of the book. The book will be useful to those in married or unmarried relationships and to attorneys and others involved in divorce cases. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
