Gain practical tips to successfully work with manipulators!
Manipulators are among a more troublesome group of disturbed and disordered characters that helping professionals increasingly find themselves dealing with, whether or not those clients have been primarily diagnosed with a personality disorder. Like the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing, manipulators know how to get the better of others and look good while doing it. Dealing with them can be a lot like getting whiplash, you fully realize what’s transpired only after the damage is already done. Most clinicians know that traditional insight-oriented approaches designed to treat “neurosis” aren’t very effective when it comes to intervening with the character-impaired. Join one of the foremost authorities on manipulative personalities, Dr. George Simon, as he shares a unique perspective along with practical, effective strategies that promote positive change in clients of troubled character.
