Product Description

Author of the bestseller Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers Dr. Karyl McBride draws on her expertise in treating children and partners damaged by narcissists in this practical new guide to divorce and its aftermath.

With more than three decades of experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist, Dr. McBride guides you through the emotional fallout and challenges of being married to and divorcing a narcissist. The court system assumes that both parties in most high-conflict divorces are at fault, but a narcissist can wreak havoc in the divorce process. Dr. McBride shows how to navigate this kind of divorce and how you and your children can heal afterward.

Written for those considering or already going through divorce, as well as the professionals working with them, Will I Ever Be Free of You? has three parts: Recognizing the Problem, Breaking Free, and Healing from the Debilitating Impact of Narcissistic Relationships. You begin by learning exactly what narcissism is, how to identify it, and how it affects relationships, then how to begin and carry on through a divorce and make the best decisions for you and your children. Dr. McBride lays out a roadmap of trauma recovery for the whole family, offering a step-by-step program for recognizing and healing from the particular emotional damage that narcissism causes.

This guide offers new therapeutic strategies and practical guidance for protecting yourself and your children through this difficult time.

Good book. But I'm not convinced that a narcissist PD parent even under the pilot program can be prevented from harming the children emotionally as long as they have access to them alone. Since when does a narcissist/antisocial respond to or cooperate with therapy? Such personality disorders are practically incurable. It's about time that the mental health professionals stand up and acknowledge that the narcissists emotional abuse of his children is as damaging as physical abuse and that documented physical abuse of the other parent is a basis for concluding that the abusive spouse will likely also abuse of the children in an effort to control the other parent. As noted in the book, it's all about control and winning for these sick individuals and the kids are just pawns in a game. Children are emotionally defenseless, and the system presently ensures that even a good healthy parent with resources cannot protect them from this emotional abuse. The fact is that the system presently leaves the children to handle this themselves...when they have grown up and are already damaged. The healthy parent has probably been completely alienated from the children by that time. So In the interest of preserving the narcissist parent's access to the children alone, the children end up damaged and disconnected from their healthy parent, the only one that could have helped them. If the goal is to protect children with a narcissist PD parent, on-going supervised visitation needs to be central to the pilot program and the law behind the pilot program. The expense of supervision should be borne by the narcissistic parent.

This book is next in line to my bible! The writer puts it out there in language everyone can understand. It is written with the average lay person in mind. When you are caught off guard, this book will help you to make sense of it all. First part describing the narcissist is right on. The second part is all about now how do you protect yourself and your family? Absolutely perfect instructions and directions to help navigate through the maze of courts, lawyers and counselors. It really opened my eyes to the legal system. I realized the saddest thing. You are not innocent until proven guilty. If someone lies against you, you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent! This book will help you do just that. Knowledge is power. This book will empower you to help yourself and make good decisions.

aSeveral times while reading "Will I Ever Be Free of You?" I had that thought, and not only in response to the emotional and true-to-life stories of victims of narcissistic relationships, but also in response to Dr. McBride's clear and insightful descriptions of narcissistic behavior and it's effects on the non-narcissistic parent. I felt that Dr. McBride knew all of my innermost pain, my feelings of weakness and self-loathing, my fear of triggering a narcissist's rage, my efforts to bury my thoughts, feelings and concerns as deeply as possible and to erase myself in order to avoid starting another fire and to protect the children by keeping the peace for as long as I could. It's soul-crushing to feel like that, and it never works for very long. Sometimes, in a moment of weakness, I make a misstep and speak up. Sometimes an innocent comment is inexplicably perceived as criticism. No matter what, eventually the narcissistic rage comes back and my young children bear the pain of witnessing those terrible outbursts (and if I'm too weak to avoid it, those horribly cruel fights). This book helped me understand for the first time that erasing myself isn't helping the kids and is destroying me...and that I have to take responsibility for finding and following a more constructive path.

I was recommended this book by a friend who said it may help with some anxiety I have been having when dealing with an ex. She said it related back to narcissism and this book would be a great read to enlighten me on better ways to deal with the less than ideal situation. It was a great read and definitely gave me insight into not only the crazy of my ex and his narcissism, but also so insight into myself and my life. Definitely would recommend this book to anyone who has questions about narcissism and better ways to cope with these types of situations.

This book was eye opening. I highly recommend this book to anyone who suspects or knows that they are in a relationship with a narcissist. It shed a whole new light on what I experienced during my marriage to a narcissist. Sometimes I thought it was just me because so many people were fooled by him, but now I know better. I only wish Dr. McBride had not confirmed my suspicion that even after the divorce, when a narcissist is involved, it's never really "over".
