Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Divorce is difficult under the best of circumstances. Dealing with this inherently adversarial process can be highly emotional on both sides. But when a divorcing individual is a "persuasive blamer" someone who suffers from borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), or simply has a high-conflict, manipulative personality - their behavior can have devastating ramifications for their former spouses. Splitting is a legal and psychological guidebook that everyone seeking a divorce from a persuasive blamer should own. Written by Bill Eddy, a family lawyer, divorce mediator, and experienced social worker, and Randi Kreger, BPD expert and author of the bestselling Stop Walking on Eggshells, it offers readers help for navigating the entire process of divorce: hiring and managing a divorce lawyer, reaching a reasonable settlement, protecting oneself and one's children from emotional and/or physical abuse from the former spouse, resisting false accusations, and getting enforceable court orders. The book also delves into the difficult-to-understand, aggressive behavior of persuasive blamers, offering readers psychological explanations for their former spouse's actions and help for coping emotionally with the spouse's extreme mood swings and impulsivity.* Nearly half of all marriages in the U.S. end in divorce and approximately 6 million American adults have borderline personality disorder or BPD

Book News Annotation:

People with borderline or narcissistic personality disorders often make false allegations of abuse or domestic violence during the divorce process and are prone to verbal and physical attacks, kidnapping the children, and refusal to follow court orders. In this book for general readers, Eddy, a lawyer and therapist affiliated with the National Conflict Resolution Center, and Kreger, author of several books on living with a partner or family member with borderline personality disorder (Walking on Eggshells), offer guidelines on dealing with these manipulative behaviors, finding a lawyer, and preparing for the worst, illustrated with real-life examples from Eddy's legal practice. Early chapters review the features of borderline and narcissistic personality disorder and describe the emotional reactions and counter-tactics these soon-to-be ex-spouses will likely display. Later chapters explain today's divorce court culture and give advice on working with experts such as court and private counselors, psychologists, appraisers, and accountants. An appendix offers sample letters to professionals from the authors of the book. The book will be useful to those in married or unmarried relationships and to attorneys and others involved in divorce cases. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
