Narcissism Victim Syndrome, A new diagnosis?
Do you see a preponderance of middle aged women in your practices with no particular physical disease process, yet a variety of physical and/or emotional complaints, including: insomnia, weight loss or gain, depression, anxiety, phobias, broken bones, lacerations, or bruises? Some may report an overwhelming feeling of emptiness or doom. Others may talk about or attempt suicide. continued ...

Emotionally Hazardous Work Environments, What's the Health Care Cost?
As companies weigh costs of doing business, the easy figures to analyze and compare are the traditional black and white ones: salaries, overhead, cost of goods, etc. Yet, what are the nebulous costs that result from absenteeism, lack of employee focus, increased usage of insurance as a result of medical conditions, and even issues related to sabotage instigated by unhappy employees, simply due to an emotionally unhealthy work environment? continued ...

(Although, I dare say, Julia's role broke a bit of the stereotype itself, as she was married to a very wealthy and respected member of the community whose friends would never have dreamed of his abusive behavior behind closed doors.)  continued ...

Conference to Help Victims of Narcissistic Relationships Become Survivors
From the boardroom to the bedroom, our narcissistic society is wrecking emotional havoc with people everywhere, leading to physical as well as mental health care issues. Yet, very little has seemingly been done to bring together victims, survivors, and health care professionals to understand the phenomenon of narcissism and Narcissistic Personality Disorder, as well as to learn how to heal from the emotional roller coaster ride that can be the life of living or working with "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", or someone with this "God Complex". continued ...

Polygamist cults aren't the only source of abuse and manipulation
With the Texas polygamist compound raid bringing to light the topics of mind control, abuse, and manipulation, find it interesting that so much of America finds this behavior reprehensible, yet what we still don't talk about is how this same behavior is going on behind closed doors in every neighborhood in this country.  continued ...
