Interested in BPD, NPD, Karpman Drama Triangle? (In a Karpman Triangle: The "rescuer" is the "victim", and the "victim" is the Perpetrator.)
Is it true that Bipolar Romantic Relationships last only 2 years on average? (There is a psych discussion with over 120 postings indicating this unfortunate timeline.)
Heard Israeli author (book: "Malignant Self-Love. Narcissism Revisited") Sam Vaknin's 400+ mini lectures, on Narcissism, on Youtube? His videos are very, very interesting. He was the subject of a documentary on the subject. You might be surprised about his information.
Vaknin's view is that romantic relationships with people with these disorders cannot be salvaged. His suggestion is to get away.
Vaknin opines that these disorders are caused solely by childhood traumas.
Let's share information. After all, this is the Information Age.
A psychologist in North Van stated that the odds of finding someone with a "golden childhood" (i.e. happy childhood) is only "0.5%" in her opinion.
It that is true, and Vaknin is correct, what is the defense strategy, since NPD is hard to detect.
The author of the leading book on BPD is Dr. Alexander Chapman, from Vancouver. He once told me that, "The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour."
Looking for suggestions on when, where, to hold this discussion, and whether there is any interest in this subject matter.
UPDATE: Want to attend by tele-conference? Just found out that my cell phone can do conference calls for up to 5 callers. Please indicate if a conference-call meetup is better for you.
FYI: Rob, this meetup's host, is one of the so-called "0.5%" group, and has none of these disorders.
