Author of the best seller Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers, Dr. Karyl McBride draws on her expertise in treating children and partners damaged by narcissists in this practical new guide to divorce and its aftermath.
With more than three decades of experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist, Dr. McBride guides you through the emotional fallout and challenges of being married to and divorcing a narcissist. The court system assumes that both parties in most high-conflict divorces are at fault, but a narcissist can wreak havoc in the divorce process. Dr. McBride shows how to navigate this kind of divorce and how you and your children can heal afterward.
Written for those considering or already going through divorce as well as the professionals working with them, Will I Ever Be Free of You? has three parts: "Recognizing the Problem", "Breaking Free", and "Healing from the Debilitating Impact of Narcissistic Relationships". You begin by learning exactly what narcissism is, how to identify it, and how it affects relationships, then how to begin and carry on through a divorce and make the best decisions for you and your children. Dr. McBride lays out a road map of trauma recovery for the whole family, offering a step-by-step program for recognizing and healing from the particular emotional damage that narcissism causes.
This guide offers new therapeutic strategies and practical guidance for protecting yourself and your children through this difficult time.

Good ideas. But, author should not narrate.
My reading matter is varied but I purchased this book to provide insight into partners with NPD for my work, this book met my expectations of what I wanted to get from it.
I recently purchased a number of books on this topic and this is the one I chose to read first, I found it a good buy.
Not many writers can pull of reading their book but I found this fairly easy to listen to and thought she gave a credible performance.
I thought it will make a useful resource for someone like me who works with clients in DV relationships. I think clients who are in an abusive relationship would benefit from reading or listening to this book as many of them feel like they are going mad because people outside the home have also brought into the charm and manipulation of the Narcissist and believe the victim is neurotic and has MH issues.
Really insightful look at Narcissist Personality Disorder behavior for those still in the relationship, thinking of separating or divorced from someone with NPD.
