Illustrates the true nature of disturbed characters, exposing the tactics the most manipulative of them use to pull the wool over the eyes of others, and outlining ways to deal more effectively with them.
In Sheep's Clothing Paperback edition by George K Simon
Dr. George Simon received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Texas Tech University. As a private practitioner and consultant, he specialized in disturbances of personality and character for more than 25 years.
He has appeared on several national radio and television programs, including Fox News Network and CNN, given more than 300 workshops and seminars nationwide, and consulted to numerous businesses, agencies, and organizations seeking his expertise on character disturbance. His book, ?In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People,? regarded by many as the premier book on manipulation, has remained a bestseller for over 17 years, and has enjoyed a five-star rating since it debuted with both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. A newly revised and expanded edition was published by Parkhurst Brothers in 2010.
In August 2010, Parkhurst Brothers released Dr. Simon's second book: ?Character Disturbance: The Phenomenon of Our Age.? This groundbreaking book takes an in-depth look at how the modern age of permissiveness and entitlement has fueled an epidemic of responsibility-challenged personalities, provides common sense guidelines for understanding and dealing with impaired characters, and outlines the steps societies must take to promote solid character formation in their citizens.
In 2013, Abingdon Press released Dr. Simon's first book written exclusively for the Christian faith community, ?The Judas Syndrome.? Only six days after its release, it received its first five-star review on Amazon.com. In this book, Dr. Simon shares his observations about the power of genuine faith to heal and transform.
Until recently, Dr. Simon maintained an active private practice dedicated to assisting individuals develop character. In addition to providing psychotherapy services to persons interested in character development, he specialized in comprehensive personality assessments, mental health professional training, consultations to businesses and organizations, and support services to individuals in relationships with problem characters. He has posted more than 150 Internet articles, and is on the faculty of several popular international blogs.
Perhaps one of his proudest achievements, Dr. Simon is also the principal composer of ?Anthem for the Millennium (America, My Home!).? The song gained popularity when a regional television station paired it with a video montage after the 9-11 attacks, and it has now been performed live to audiences totaling over one million.
More information about Dr. Simon may be found on his blog: www.manipulative-people.com or his website: www.drgeorgesimon.com.
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.
