The smartest way to deal with love fraud is to prevent it, to teach people how to spot it before they get hooked.
That’s why I love presenting to students and teachers. Knowledge is power, and knowledge that sociopaths exist, and that they usually start their lying and manipulation in high school, gives young people the power to protect themselves.
The newest program offered by Lovefraud Continuing Education is geared directly towards teachers and other education professionals. It is a video of a presentation I did last year for the Association of Student Assistance Professionals of New Jersey.
School systems often require teachers and other school professionals to be on the lookout for dating violence. But violence is usually the culmination of an abusive relationship — not the starting point. In this program, I teach educators the Red Flags of Love Fraud, so they can help students avoid dangerous involvements in the first place.
