In Sheep's Clothing

Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People

In Sheep's Clothing

Modern permissiveness and the new culture of entitlement allows disturbed people to reach adulthood without proper socialization. In a book meant both for the general public and for professionals, bestselling author and psychologist George Simon explains in plain English: -How most disturbed characters think. -The habitual behaviors the disturbed use to avoid responsibility and to manipulate, deceive, and exploit others. -Why victims in relationships with disturbed characters do not get help they need from traditional therapies. -A straightforward guide to recognizing and understanding all relevant personality types, especially those most likely to undermine relationships. -A new framework for making sense of the crazy world many find themselves in when there's a disturbed character in their lives. -Concrete principles that promote responsibility and positive change when engaging disturbed characters. -Tactics (for both lay persons and therapists) to lessen the chances for victimization and empower those who would otherwise be victims in their relationships with many types of disturbed characters.

The Judas Syndrome

Why Good People Do Awful Things

The Judas Syndrome

Even people we think are our friends will deny and betray us. Are they bad people, or just don’t do enough, or people with good intentions but acting in ignorance? Or are they basically decent people who, when put to the test, fail because of their weak faith? Filled with many examples, Judas Syndrome gives concrete ways to prevent people, even other Christians, from hurting you and the role that faith can play in changing them and helping you avoid the pain that these relationships often bring. Although sometimes we suffer as a result of our own shortcomings and missteps, placing our trust in Christ's message of love provides the gateway to the life God intends for us. In other words, faith can really save us—a faith, however, that is not easily undertaken on a daily basis or one that can be sustained alone.

A Girl's Guide to Predators

The Games Psychopaths and Narcissists Play

A Girl's Guide to Predators

Most women wouldn't expect a man to be cynically assessing their "usefulness" on a first date but that's how a psychopath thinks. Psychopaths are ruthless human predators. The man across the restaurant table is calculating, "Does she have what I need?" What is he after? It could be anything. A sexual partner, money he hopes to live off, access to a particular group of friends or colleagues, a willingness to help him climb the career ladder...or it could be something more basic: to provide a cover of respectability that will blind others to his predatory nature. A psychopath seduces his target by love-bombing her. Once he has figured out the kind of man who will appeal to her, this shape-shifter turns himself into the man of her dreams. He will pursue her ardently and obsessively. And once he has won the woman's heart, he will manipulate the relationship so that he extracts as much as he can while giving as little as possible. When the psychopath has exhausted what psychologists call "narcissistic supply," his true nature will be revealed. He will become cold, cruel and abusive to his partner. He will clean out the bank accounts and abandon her. In his lifetime a psychopath leaves behind a trail of emotional and financial wreckage. But, as the world-famous security expert Gavin de Becker observes, while "we cannot change or eliminate all the dangerous people in the world, we can change our ability to deal with them." In A Girls Guide to Predators: The Games Psychopaths and Narcissists Play, readers get advice from criminal experts and leading psychologists on how to recognize a typical psychopath before he gets the chance to play his mind games. Dr. George K. Simon, author of the international bestseller In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People writes: "Clearly, concisely written, and packed with useful information, Alison Summers lays out in very understandable terms exactly what the unsuspecting soul needs to know about the predators and other unsavory sorts among us."
