Overview

Manage Your Relationship with the Narcissist in Your Life

When you interact with a friend, family member, intimate partner, or coworker who is a narcissist, there's no give and take. The relationship only goes one way-their way-and you constantly have to adjust your own expectations and behavior to meet their standards. That's because people with narcissistic personality disorder, or NPD, are preoccupied with seeking admiration and power and find it difficult to empathize with others' feelings. And, as if maintaining a good relationship with a narcissist weren't hard enough, most narcissists do not realize or believe that they have a disorder at all. That's why The One-Way Relationship Workbook was created—to help you effectively improve and ultimately transform your relationship with the self-absorbed, self-centered, or narcissistic individuals in your life.

The exercises and worksheets in this powerful workbook were created by noted psychologists who have been researching and working with the self-absorbed for more than twenty years. Part I of this workbook helps you understand the mind of a narcissist and how narcissistic behavior affects the way you feel, think, and behave around this person. In Part II, you'll learn practical strategies for making yourself heard during interactions with a narcissist. Eventually, you'll be able to have regular contact with self-absorbed individuals comfortably, effectively, and without frustration.
