When Dr. Tennov introduced the concept in the 1970s, it was mostly rejected. We encounter marriage counselors who have never heard of it. But the research is solid. PhD's including anthropologists and biologists and more study it, even having brain scans that teach us much about it. It's called limerence. It is a state of being "madly in love' to the point that it becomes obsessive and affects the way a person feels, acts, and thinks. It is powerful. It can be beautiful. It often is destructive.
If you search the internet for the word, you'll find many sites discussing it. Unfortunately, some of those are by people who read an article or two - maybe even Tennov's book from back in the day - and think themselves knowledgeable. Some confidently cite things about limerence that Tennov said that we now know by further research not to be the case. Therefore, be careful with what you read on the internet about it. It may lead you to some very wrong conclusions...and those to very wrong actions.
Our knowledge of limerence comes not only from continuing to examine scholarly research, but from the hundreds of thousands of people who have been through workshops, courses, and seminars developed by Dr. Joe Beam. We carefully observe people in our 911 workshops for marriages in crisis who are in limerence. We have done before and after scientific profiles on many. We have in-depth dialogue with others. We have found that limerence has three phases......and that limerence ends......always.
In this program, Dr. Beam discusses the three phases of limerence. He explains what happens within the limerent during each. He explains shy some who end limerence don't go back to their lives as before...and how to help overcome limerence.
Objectivists often use this term to describe someone whom others call “egoistic” - a someone who brags in order to get the admiration of others (rather than valuing their own accomplishments for their own sake) and is therefore virulently second-handed. For example, Objectivists will point to Trump’s self-aggrandizement: “I will give you everything. I will give you what you've been looking for for 50 years. I'm the only one.” as narcissistic. These Objectivists probably aren’t wrong, but I find the usage dangerous. My purpose is to share what I’ve learned about narcissism, because I think Objectivism has some uniquely insightful things to say about this personality disorder.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects thousands of state and local police officers, armed service men and women and civilians of every description. PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of a life-threatening event. PTSD can stem from military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or physical or sexual assault in adult or childhood. The majority of people who experience or witness a life threatening event will return to normal given a little time. However, some people will have stress reactions that do not go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. PTSD is complicated by the fact that people with PTSD often may develop additional disorders such as depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other problems of physical and mental health. Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston,R.N. is joined by expert, Dr. Richard Gray to discuss his research on NLP as it pertains to PTSD.

His beginnings were - let's say - typical of his time. He had a mom and dad, siblings, school and friends. Anthony says he was shy and not that attractive. But then things began to change. He discovered that singing was his friend. What turned Anthony Gourdine into the world- famous Little Anthony of Little Anthony and the Imperials?
Andrea Schneider, LCSW and Christine Louis de Canonville ask listeners to explore the difference between codependency and co-narcissism. You'll be surprised and the conversation will make you take a deeper look at the meanings of both of these words.
Christine Louise de Cannonville, B.A.; MIACP; MTCI; MPNLP, CMH; CHyp has been a Psychotherapist and Supervisor of mental health professionals for over 20 years. She has recognized a gap in the training of many therapists.Her book THE 3 FACES OF EVIL - Unmasking The Full Spectrum Of Narcissistic Abuse sets out to address the shortfalls in a therapist’s education so that they become better equipt to work with survivors of narcissistic abuse.
We encourage everyone listening to take the time to read more about her work here.
Christine has created an effective program for working one-to-one with victims suffering from Narcissistic Victim Syndrome, and developed workshops for educating therapists and other health professionals in the whole spectrum of Narcissistic abuse. Much of her knowledge has come from her post-grad studies in Criminology and Forensic Psychology, and it is through these disciplines that she has gained her understanding of the The Dark Triad, (Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychopathy). These Three Faces of Evil are vital information for understanding the full spectrum of narcissistic abuse.
This collection of essays written by Frances Cress Welsing over an 18 year period following the presentation and publication of 'The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism (White Supremacy) which was a theoretical statement, a psychogenetic theory and world outlook on the origin and meaning of the global white supremacy system. This theory summarizes and clarifies the experience of non-white peoples on a planet dominated by people who classify themselves as 'white' and who are a minority of the world's people.

What is the myth about Narcissus?
What is the continuum of narcissism?
What are the causes of narcissism?
What’s the relationship between codependency and narcissism?
What attracts a person to a narcissistic partner? What type of person usually gets involved with a
What makes narcissists so defensive and difficult to communicate with?
What are positive and negative indicators that a narcissist will change?
What are the necessary steps to deal with them?
There is much debate about whether narcissists can truly be healed? What is your belief about this subject?
Another debated topic is around whether or not there is such a thing as healthy narcissism. Many believe all narcissism is unhealthy. Where do you stand in this debate?
The very word narcissism is being thrown around quite casually these days. How do we carefully advocate for victims of this abuse while not making blanket statements about this disorder that may be applied to wounded people that are actually capable of evolving?
Not everyone is ready or able to completely disconnect from their narcissistic partner. They have to learn tools about how to cope which is what some of your book is about. How do they keep their strength up when the very nature of this disorder is that it toxically infects those close to the narcissist?
Please join us for continued dialogue about fire, violence, eros, and creativity.
Our stories are increasingly narrow and do not communicate across larger social groups. Our stories contain fewer facts but more myths, fantasies, and outright lies. Our stories are growing shorter with fewer meaningful narratives. Our stories have fewer heroes unless they are fictional superheroes but contain more villains. Our stories are less about skills and resilience and more about victimization and trauma. Our stories are incresingly based on judgment rather than description.
This episode focused on the grief process. Identify stages of grief, triggers of grief, and coping skills.
Musical examples from Bruce Springsteen, George Harrision, Sting and Ambrosia illustrate some of the concepts of grief.
Emphasis on support and self care are stressed.

Topics discussed on the program will include discovering God’s prescription for good mental health, identity in Christ, fear and anxiety, stress, depression, overcoming abuse, grief, anger, shame and guilt, codependency and victim mentality, marital conflict, loneliness, trials and suffering, spiritual warfare issues, substance abuse and addiction, discerning God’s will, false belief systems and the importance of the renewing of the mind, and many others. All topics will be looked at through a Biblical lens and will integrate the living and active Word of God as the catalyst for healing!
