Encountering a Malignant Narcissist, a Psychopath, or a Avoidant Dismissive Personality Type can be deadly and deeply traumatizing at any age, but especially if you encountered one in childhood like I did. What kind of wound does that create, how do you know your dealing with one, how do you heal? What creates this, what are the signs and red flags to look out for? These are just some of the questions we explore in this informal and highly personal podcast about what we encountered. This is just the tip of the iceberg for me and the first time I have been able to publically have a somewhat intelligent and coherent conversation without dissociationing while talking about some of what I endured for years as a kid and young adult. It’s still hard to write about let alone talk about it, I was so nervous and shaky and it’s obvious, so if you are dying to tell your story, listen to this I hope it imparts some courage. What is exciting, is to get the honor of speaking with Lena Derhally, a Licensed Mental Health Professional about the clinical aspects of this type of pathology. She also wrote a great book I read in two days about the Watts Family Tragedy, every woman out there and honestly every human being needs to read this to understand what narcissism is, what it isn’t and what to look out for. Her book, My Daddy is a Hero, How Chris Watts Went from Family Man to Family Killer has become a #1 best seller.

It is the first and only psychological exploration of the Watts family murders, psychotherapist Lena Derhally has pieced together the crime, the events leading to it, and most of all, her beliefs about the question we are all still asking. Why?

Included is an in-depth look at community psychopaths, the different subtypes of narcissism, and interviews with a neuroscientist, a criminal psychologist, and a journalist in order to determine what in Chris Watts twisted makeup allowed him to hide who he really is for so long. You can find her book on Amazon or connect with her HERE.
