“Will I Ever Be Free of You?  How to Navigate a High-Conflict Divorce from a Narcissist and Heal Your Family” by Karyl McBride, Ph.D.


While this book should probably come with a cautionary note to avoid diagnosing another person – especially a spouse or ex-spouse – with narcissism, the author provides critically important information about navigating a high-conflict divorce from a difficult/toxic person.  This book has been an invaluable resource to my clients who are going through this experience, especially those who admit they’re “feeling crazy…doubting my own perception of reality.”  The author offers tips on what might occur in the divorce process (and possibly for years to come), how to set boundaries even if the other person does not honor them, how to communicate clearly even when another person is “gaslighting” and how to protect kids from the impact of a high-conflict divorce.
