Surviving High-Conflict Divorce: Protecting Your Kids and Yourself from a Narcissist (Paperback)
"I want a divorce."
These are words that no one wants to hear, but Shane O'Brian fearlessly tells the true story of his experience from that moment to the day he signed the final decree.
Divorce can be devastating. The physical, psychological, and financial toll it exacts upon a family is incalculable, especially when children are involved. But O'Brian brings a message of overcoming-and hope in the face of hopelessness. He offers himself as a guide who went through a high-conflict divorce, but managed to keep his head up, remain positive, and keep his sense of civility while enduring insanity. It wasn't easy-he had to contend with a narcissist who had been having an affair with a married coworker-and he's here to offer support and encouragement so you can make it through, too.
O'Brian's perspective is that of a loving father who knows that in the end, it is the kids who truly suffer the most. His goal is to lessen their suffering as well as yours. Along with his story are takeaways and action items to help readers stay healthy and strong throughout the challenges.
