We're talking tonight about coping with toxic people, most of whom are some variant of a Cluster B personality disorder, which is a topic we've covered from a variety of angles in prior episodes. Ep. 3 – Gaslighting (8-24-16), Ep. 30 - Coping with Someone Else's Pathologies (9-20-17), and Ep. 32 - Entitlement Mentality (10-18-17).

We're going to focus specifically on knowing what are toxic behaviors, recognizing when they are doing us harm, and when, how, and why to cut ties with a toxic person, or at least how to cope with them in as healthy of a way as possible if one is stuck with them.

  1. Define Toxic People
  2. Chances of them stopping the behavior
  3. Family vs friends vs coworkers vs anyone else – why it is hard to cut ties – when should you?
  4. Coping skills to cut ties; Coping skills if you are stuck with them.


We'll start off the evening with some topic-relevant Classic Rock played by Dr. Mathis, followed by Classic Rock trivia, in "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls," followed by our topic discussion. 

Please follow our bi-weekly, Wednesday evening shows, at 11 pm EST/EDT. We will have a new topic for you in two weeks!
