How Consultations Can Help

There’s no “one size fits all” approach to dealing with an Emotional Predator in your life. Each Emotional Predator is his or her own unique mix of the features described in Chapter 1 of Protecting Yourself from Emotional Predators: Neutralize the Users, Abusers and Manipulators Hidden Among Us: Psychopathic, Narcissistic, Paranoid, Borderline and Hysterical. And each situation is unique. This means that no single strategy or tactic can be guaranteed to instantly neutralize every Emotional Predator, and learning how to protect yourself is a process of trial and error. Consultations can help you apply the strategies and tactics explained in the book to your unique situation, and create learning opportunities when a tactic you tried didn’t work out as you’d hoped. Whenever we try new perspectives and approaches, it’s useful to consult an experienced guide.

 

Individual and Entity Consultations

Steven consults with individuals and entities such as businesses; neighborhood, condo and homeowners’ associations; schools and other groups about problems between people. Many people, particularly human resources professionals, senior executives and those going through divorce or custody struggles with an Emotional Predator, find these consultations an invaluable addition to his book. He helps them put into practice the strategies and tactics explained in the book with personalized guidance tailored to their unique situation.

Whether you’re an individual or part of a group, consulting Steven can help you understand a particular Emotional Predator you’re dealing with, know your unique vulnerabilities better and change them to immunities, and craft situation-specific strategics and tactics – by tutoring you (or members of your group) to effectively respond to emails and other provocations, identifying your (or members of your group’s) reactive emotional buttons the Emotional Predator is pushing, and developing alternative approaches that empower you (or members of your group). These consultations can be in person or via video or telephone, usually with email follow up as needed. An initial consultation is usually between one and two hours. These consultations are not therapy or legal advice but can provide a powerful adjunct to both.

Mental Health, Legal and Other Professional Consultations

Steven consults with professionals in the mental health, legal and other professions to help them learn fresh approaches grounded in a new paradigm for understanding and dealing with difficult people – the Emotional Predators who haunt their professional lives. Most often these are case-specific inquiries from professionals frustrated or uncertain about a particularly vexing or intractable client, although non-specific general practice support is also provided. Attorneys can seek new perspectives and approaches for managing a challenging opposing counsel or client who seems to get away with manipulating the legal system despite all normal good-lawyer counter-measures.

Consultations with professionals tend to be short interventions, but can include ongoing support and coaching as a case or situation evolves. These consultations can be in person or via video or telephone, usually with email follow up as needed. An initial consultation is usually between one and two hours. These consultations are not therapy, therapist supervision or legal advice, but can provide a powerful adjunct to therapy and a valuable resource for therapists’ and attorneys’ practices.
