A relationship with a narcissist is a recipe for a difficult marriage. When these unions are followed by divorces, and they usually are, those divorces are considered “high conflict”. Narcissists, entitled, exploitative, arrogant, and lacking empathy become highly aggressive during this process. They are deceitful, unreasonably argumentative and revengeful.

Most parents try to shield their children from unnecessary exposure to the divorce and try to keep them out of the conflict. This is not the mindset of a narcissist. Narcissists feel as if they must win every conflict.  Destroying the other spouse and their children in the process is a desired outcome. Children are considered pawns in their game. Determined to be as cruel as possible, as only narcissists can, children are weaponized and used against the innocent, loving parent.

How do you navigate a nightmarish process such as this? Should you stay married to your abuser to avoid the rough road ahead. The answer is NO. You must leave but there are ways to do this and come out on the winning end. Today's special guest Susan Shofer is going to tell you how..

Susan is a dear friend of mine, a colleague, and an outstanding divorce coach. She is renowned world-wide for the powerful Ted Talk she gave on Parental Alienation.

As a divorce and custody ally, she helps women and men navigate the troubled waters of a family breakup by sharing her own organized and pragmatic approach to the divorce process. Susan successfully crossed her own highly contentious divorce and post-divorce battle and was triumphant in her fight against Parental Alienation.

Susan is the author of The Divorce Recovery Ladder and a forthcoming book about parental alienation. She is a former private investigator, and has an MBA from Johns Hopkins University and BA from the Univ of Maryland.
