Donna Andersen explains sociopaths on Blog Talk Radio

This week, in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I appeared on the Blog Talk Radio show, Golden Life Living with Charise. 

In this 43-minute interview, I explained some of the Red Flags of Love Fraud — the warning signs of sociopathic behavior. I also discussed typical sociopathic strategies for undermining their targets and the best way to avoid these predators.

Anniversary sale: Buy a Lovefraud book, get one free!

Red Flags and Love Fraud_300x300Lovefraud.com launched in July 2005, so we’re celebrating 11 years online! In honor of our anniversary, you can buy two of Donna Andersen’s printed books for the price of one.

Red Flats of Love Fraud – 10 signs you’re dating a sociopath

This book reveals, for the first time, the tactics of social predators who pursue romantic relationships not for love, but for exploitation. You’ll learn how sociopaths seduce their targets, why it’s hard to escape the relationships, and how you can protect yourself.

Love Fraud – How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan

Love Fraud tells two parallel stories. The first is the true story of Donna Andersen’s marriage to a sociopathic con artist, James Montgomery — a revealing look at the true behavior of a sociopath. The second story is a spiritual journey. Seeking to understand why her life was ravaged, Donna learned that her soul planned the entire debacle to experience and then release the devastating betrayal, so that she could return to wholeness.

Coming this spring: Lovefraud online courses for survivors and therapists

lovefraud CE 72dpi_350x97

One of the big reasons why so many people fall for sociopaths and other exploiters is that we don’t know they exist, don’t know the warning signs, and don’t know how to escape. Lovefraud is taking a big step towards solving these problems by offering online education for mental health professionals and the public.

This initiative has been in the works for almost two years. The program will launch in May/June — we’re still finalizing the details. If you want to be notified about when the courses will be offered and when registration will open, join our mailing list for Lovefraud Continuing Education News.

Most courses will be webinars, either one hour or two hours long. You’ll log in and watch the instructor’s presentation on your computer screen, while the instructor explains his or her material. (If you’ve ever attended a meeting or webinar on the Citrix GoToMeeting platform, then you’ll know what to expect.) If you have questions, you’ll be able to send them via chat or email, and the instructor will respond.

The navigation was recently updated to make Lovefraud friendlier for smart phones and other mobile devices. Here’s how to find all of Lovefraud’s features. The words in red are direct links.

Red menu bar at the top of the page

Beware the sociopath — what you need to know

These pages explain the definition of a sociopath, the key symptoms, how to spot con artists, and what can happen when you encounter these predators.

You can read the pages in sequence —a link at the bottom of each page takes you to the next topic. Or, you can see links to all the pages at once on the site map.
