Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Some difficult people aren't just hard to deal with--they're dangerous.<br> <br> Do you know someone whose moods swing wildly? Do they act unreasonably suspicious or antagonistic? Do they blame others for their own problems?<br> <br> When a high-conflict person has one of five common personality disorders--borderline, narcissistic, paranoid, antisocial, or histrionic--they can lash out in risky extremes of emotion and aggression. And once an HCP decides to target you, they're hard to shake.<br> <br> But there are ways to protect yourself. Using empathy-driven conflict management techniques, Bill Eddy, a lawyer and therapist with extensive mediation experience, will teach you to:<br> <br> - Spot warning signs of the five high-conflict personalities in others and in yourself.<br> - Manage relationships with HCPs at work and in your private life.<br> - Safely avoid or end dangerous and stressful interactions with HCPs.<br> <br> Filled with expert advice and real-life anecdotes, 5 Types of People Who Can Ruin Your Life is an essential guide to helping you escape negative relationships, build healthy connections, and safeguard your reputation and personal life in the process. And if you have a high-conflict personality, this book will help you help yourself.
