Sociopath Behavior ~ Is my partner exhibiting signs of a sociopath?
This is Dr. Kenner's "Today's Podcast" at http://bit.ly/auKJV8 and is also listed as podcast number 1. After today it will remain available but move down in the list. All past podcasts are also listed.
Tonight on It's Real Talk Radio we'll be discussing the behaviors of people with Personality Disorders with a focus on Narcissists & Sociopaths. We'll be joined by Trenton Hawley who has had a 6 year relationship & marriage with someone who he found out too little too late was a Sociopath. Trenton has since started a YouTube channel where he's uploaded tons of videos on his 6 year experience of the mental abuse he's encountered in his marriage. We, the hosts of It's Real Talk Radio too have had our own experiences with dating and dealing with Narcissists & Sociopaths as well and I'll be the first to tell you that it's an experience you want to avoid at all costs!
This is no reality show; this is the real deal! There's nothing fictional about these horrific experiences!! We're here tonight to shed light on this issue and to enlighten those of you who may be dating or married to someone you believe to have a Personality Disorder but can't quite put your finger on what the diagnosis is. Trust and believe you don't need a therapist to tell you how to recognize the signs of a Narcissist/Sociopath! Oh and you'd better hope you're not dating an actual psychopath because you, your kids and other family's lives may be in danger but that's a whole different discussion!
Dating a Sociopath can be hazardous to your mental health! It also can have financial repercussions! Sociopaths lack empathy and will destroy you from the inside out to achieve their agendas (whatever that may be). Narcissists are arrogant & self-centered. They also lack empathy and prey on others to achieve their goals. To find out more, tune-in tonight at 9PM ET. It's time to spread awareness and air out these scam artists!

In this episode we are bringing back a conversation from five years ago with Sam Vaknin, twice diagnosed narcissist and diagnosed sociopath.
Sam Vaknin, author of "Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited" , a work of reference about the Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Join me as I interview Self Proclaimed Narcissist Sam Vaknin who is one of the leading authorities on Narcissistic Personality Disorder on the Web. We will talk to Sam about how he came to discover he had NPD and how he has used the knowledge and experienced he has gained to shed an inner light to the disorder for others to gain a greater understanding.
In my studies about Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Psychopathy, and Sociopathy I came across an insightful article written by Shannon Thomas, LCSW. It was interesting to start viewing this type of abuse from varying spiritual perspectives. I made a point of reaching out to Shannon to invite her on the show and share her wisdom with our providers.
Enjoy the entire blog article here.
Shannon's book is out April 2016. The title is When A Christian Meets A Sociopath: Recognizing and Stopping Psychological Abuse
What is the book about?
How did you begin working with survivors of Narcissistic/Sociopathic relationship abuse?
What extra challenges do people who attend church and self-identify as Christian have when it comes to Narcissistic/Sociopathic abuse?
What changes do you advocate for within the current Western Church culture?
Why is recognizing a narcissistic or sociopath so difficult?
What are some of the characteristics that people should be aware of about narcissists and sociopaths?
What advice do you have for someone who believes that they may be in a relationship with someone who is a Narcissist or Sociopath?
Can a therapist be used to further the abuse of the victim of psychological abuse?
What does the recovery look like for someone who has been in a relationship with a narcissistic or sociopath?
What final thoughts do you have for victims of psychological abuse and especially those who feel that their faith has been manipulated against them?

LIFE – You don’t realize how good it is, until it is squeezed out of you.
One of the hardest things sometime a person can do is "forgive" themselves for mistakes they may have made. In the process of coming to a place of understanding why you missed the "red flags" and had a relationship with a person society has defined as a "sociopath" can be hard to accept.
However, it was not your FAULT.....remember that and UNDERSTAND, it was not your FAULT!
On the surface none of us want to be known as the person who was with a sociopath but it happens often.....very often as a matter of fact. It crosses all socio-economic backgrounds as well.
Join us as we discuss what it is like and why one might end up in a relationship with a "sociopath."
Organic portals are said to comprise approximately half of the human population; the other half mostly consists of souled humans1. Here we define “soul” as the core of individualized consciousness that remains intact between successive incarnations.
While souled humans have a divine spark of consciousness that gives them the ability of individual self-awareness, OPs lack this divine spark and are only dimly conscious in comparison. They belong to an animal-like group soul that exists, evolves, and incarnates collectively rather than individually3. While each souled human has a relatively unique energy shaped by that person’s awareness, experience, and essence, the energy that animates one OP is the same animating any other.
However, there is another issue and that is, true esoteric work and knowledge can only be grasped and applied by a certain type of human and that another type of man does not posses this ability in his/her current life cycle.
One type has a soul, the other one is soul-less, so to speak. There is no difference on the outside and in terms of personality, but the inner life is vastly different. No one is better or worse than the other, but all are part of this evolutionary cycle. The idea of the soul is something that many religions, philosophers and spiritual teachings talk about.
Careful consideration went into this interview with Dr. James H. Fallon. It is not every day that a boutique radio show like ours reaches out to a world-renowned neuroscientist, let alone one that has contributed immeasurably to the field of human behavior we avidly support. However, Dr. Fallon, who asked me simply to call him “Jim”, was easy to reach, glad to be of service, and said he was up for anything I wanted to ask him in this interview. He did ask that we stay away from personal stories that might negatively affect his family.
We have a large audience of survivors of psychological abuse, please be advised this show could be very triggering for some listeners. We’ve already privately shared this show with a few of our Behavioral Health practitioners. It was triggering for some of them due to the nature of how I was asked certain questions.
We suggest all listeners read the full BLOG article HERE.
What happens when a "empath" interviews a psychopath? Listen in to find out.
Lady Taz and the panel examine the traits of a sociopath. With statistics that say that 1 of every 25 people walking around has the sociopathic traits--- maybe we need to be aware of the traits and dangers. When we hear the word "sociopath" we think of a killer but that is an extreme and not the norm. Listen in to this a continuation of "He is not who you think he is"
We’ve interviewed clinicians, best-selling authors, and global experts on the top of narcissism, psychopathy, and sociopathology. It’s past time to share the history of survivors. Our next guest, for her own safety, agreed to be interviewed under her pseudonym to discuss her book, her advocacy, and her experiences. She is an author and survivor of abuse at the hands of her former husband. Her book has been praised by survivors and clinicians as an extremely open, honest, and detailed account of what life is like when married to a psychopath. Please welcome MrsXNomore to Mental Health News Radio.

This week on Living Astrology Radio - Sociopaths vs. Empaths: Interview with Tracey Lockwood - Reverand & Medium.
Reverend medium Tracey Lockwood talks about the continuum between sociopaths and empaths and the identifying characteristics of each.
Tracey’s’ first memory was of the faces of those in spirit visiting over her crib. In her 20s, she was proficient in the spiritual gifts mentioned in the Bible: tongues, interpretation, prophecy, visions, dream interpretation, and the laying on of hands. She explored several religious philosophies. And in 2010, was formally recognized as a Clairvoyant and Empathic Medium during her training at Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Science, in England.
She is Executive Minister for THE UNIVERSAL MIND, radio show Host of “From a Medium’s Perspective” on Revolution Radio (recently also accepted for broadcast on Radio Free Roanoke), teaches psychic and mediumship development, offers private readings, spiritual counseling, and specialty sessions of lithomancy, animal communication, spirit art, and past lives.
Tonight Bonnie Kaye welcomes Joyce M. Short, author of Carnal Abuse by Deceit. Joyce is looking to pave the way for new laws on sexual assault by fraud and to raise awareness about this defiling, and common crime.
Most people think they won't get caught up in one, but romance scams happen all the time! Scam artists know exactly how to use "the laws of attraction" to get their hooks into you. This book will give you the radar you need to stay safe!
Ms. Short takes you on her personal and very painful journey through an underhanded form of sexual assault. It's a story that's raising awareness and leading the way for new laws on sexual consent and catfish (catphish) profiling. It's an eye opener for anyone who is:
Caught in a toxic relationship
Approaching the age of romance
Supporting a loved one's recovery from betrayal or sexual deceit
Wondering if your mate is a sociopath
According to Ms. Short, "Make no mistake.... even very smart people can get snagged! This book will help you recognize, avoid and recover if it happens to you or someone you care about."
