Sunday 2nd June 2013: Empathy Trap: Breaking Free From Psychopaths and Sociopaths

This week, we're going to be talking with Tim McGregor, co-author with Dr Jane McGregor of The Empathy Trap: Understanding Antisocial Personalities. Tim is a health practitioner with more than 20 years' experience in addiction and sociopathy and Jane is an author and lecturer at the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham, UK.

The McGregors prefer the term 'sociopath' over 'psychopath', although their recently published book discusses essentially the same condition, explaining how predators operate, why they're often difficult to spot, and the importance of recognising pathological behaviour for what it is. The Empathy Trap also challenges antisocial behaviour in everyday life and calls for more empathy among normal people, something that can help victims cope with the aftermath of destructive relationships by re-establishing healthy boundaries.

Join us this Sunday 2nd June from 2-4pm EST (7-9pm GMT) as we discuss the effects predators have on individuals and society, and what people can do to protect themselves from their influence.

This will be a good one.
Maybe a 'path will call in and make it even more interesting.

Not sure if it is the server here, however the show went off the air, came back briefly and is now off again - is it coming through for others?

It went off for me, too, but came back on right away and is on now.

Fascinating sounding book, especially the description of how it is laid out - just ordered (a few more copies are available for < $6.00) via amazon.
