Provoke Not Your Children: How to Escape the Emotional Trap of a Narcissistic Mother

Dr. Carol Provo

Book - This self-help book walks the reader through a detailed account of how abusive, controlling, manipulative, and personality-disordered individuals weave a web of deception to groom and entangle their victims in unhealthy and chaotic relationships. It also discusses the long-lasting emotional and psychological effects on their victims, whether they are minors or adults. Finally, the book also includes some of Dr. Provo’s real-life therapeutic cases, strategies for survival, and a plan for getting help. The self-help book is written for ALL interested individuals, including adults and supervised adolescents, mental health counselors, life coaches, therapists, and other mental health professionals. It would also be a great asset to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in psychology, sociology, social work, forensic, and behavioral science programs for a peek into the personality-disordered mind.

Order Also available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
