The second part of our three-part series about separating from a narcissist.
In our first session, we talked about what a narcissist is or isn’t. It turns out every asshole isn’t a narcissist and every narcissist isn’t an asshole. But they do have some very significant traits, and knowing how to work with them can make all the difference between success and failure in a divorce process.
In this session, we’ll learn more strategies for success from our two professionals, attorney Shelley Klein and psychologist Lauren Behrman. We’ll also hear from some women who’ve navigated a split with a narcissistic spouse and lived to tell about it- specifically what helped and what didn’t. Please join us and bring your questions!
