Welcome to After Psychotherapy! If you’d like to join in the conversation, respond to what I or other site visitors have said or share you own experience, feel free to submit a comment to any of the posts. I read and approve everything unless it’s hostile, irrelevant or overly rambling.
For those of you who may have purchased your book through Amazon, need some verified reviews on that site. I realize that it takes time to finish reading the book, of course, but if you finish and feel so inclined, please submit a review. Thanks!
Just in time for the pub date of my book, the (slightly bizarre) NYT review of my book went live today!
By now, most regular readers probably know I have a book coming out soon. In case anyone is interested in pre-ordering The Narcissist You Know, here are links to the Amazon product pages for both hardback and Kindle versions. The pub date is still nearly eight weeks away, but all these pre-orders count toward my debut ranking and mean a great deal.
I don’t propose to wade into the Caitlyn Jenner controversy, especially since my views on the role of shame in transgender identification offend some people, but I’d like to share a few of my reactions to the Vanity Fair cover and the questions it evoked. I’d like to start a conversation rather than to deliver an opinion. I invite you to share your respectful, non-hostile views.
One of my clients has lived in a small, closely-knit community for many years now. In partnership with another couple, two people she considered good friends, she owned a restaurant/bar that served as a gathering point for their community. As it turned out, these “friends” had been stealing from her for quite some time, skimming profits that should have been shared with my client – easy to do in a cash business. When my client finally learned the truth, she confronted her partners and, to make a long and very painful story short, they out-maneuvered her and took control of the business.
