Helpful, In Depth, and Liberating for anyone dealing with an NPD family system
I found this book while looking for information on this disorder after finding out that my mother has NPD and was immediately engaged by the very practical approach the authors took in describing NPD families in both its covert and overt forms. Because this book is written by therapists for therapists, it presents a more in-depth picture of the disorder and the family dynamic than some of the more lay-person oriented books. This is not simply an overview of a dynamic, however, as the authors include real-life therapeutic examples (names protected, of course) and approaches used with success in their counseling practice. Most of all, the authors covey a sense of healing and liberation coupled with validation that those who were raised under this dynamic are not defective and thus can recover to lead happy normal lives that break the NPD dysfunctional cycle. A Must Read for anyone who has experienced the mind games of living within an NPD family system, or who is studying with a view to helping those working toward recovery.
