I was reminded of this book today, and I wanted to do a quick blog post about it.
Its titled, SPLITTING: Protecting yourself While Divorcing a Borderline or a Narcissist.
Its not a faith based book first of all, but I have heard so many GOOD things about it I wanted to mention it.
It not only can help those that feel their spouse is borderline or narcissist, but also those of you with abusive and difficult ones. In other words, don't get caught off guard by the labels.
Its a good tool for counselors, lawyers, and individuals in high conflict separations and divorces.
Barbara over at Sanctuary for the Abused quoted from the author:
I wrote SPLITTING after ten years as a divorce attorney representing many fathers (and mothers) whose spouses appeared to have Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorders or traits. Since I had been a therapist for the previous decade, I recognized these personality problems -- but I did not realize at first how successful they can be at manipulating and confusing legal professionals.
It reminded me of all the people I know that just raved about this book, and how helpful it was to them.
It doesn't even matter if you’re already somewhere “down the path” with your high-conflict ex, you will find that Splitting: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing a Borderline or a Narcissist will be a tremendous help in understanding with whom you’re dealing with. It is also helpful to show others such as your support system or professionals you are working with.
It will prepare you to better handle what is to come both personally and legally. It will be instrumental in helping you to understand the motivations of your ex-partner and the expectations of what will surely continue to take place both inside and outside of the court room.
As the saying goes, More tools is your toolbox the more prepared you are! Protection from abuse in regards to yourself and your children often times depend on being prepared.
I know it was extremely helpful for a friend of mine that was involved in a very ugly custody batter with an convicted abuser.
Domestic violence lawyers or attorneys have also found this book helpful, and I have heard them use this book as a reference point.
