AT THE MERCY OF THE MOB Kenneth Westhues, University of Waterloo

A summary of research on workplace mobbing published in OHS Canada, Canada’s Occupational Health & Safety Magazine, Vol. 18, No. 8, December 2002, pp. 30-36. Published on the web, January 2003.

In the early 1980s, a Swedish psychologist named Heinz Leymann identified a grave threat to health and safety in what appear to be the healthiest, safest workplaces in the world. German was Leymann’s first language, Swedish his second, but he labeled the distinct menace he had found with an English word: mobbing.

Over the next twenty years, news of Leymann’s discovery spread across Europe and beyond. Untranslated, the English name he gave it entered the vocabulary of workplace relations throughout Scandinavia and in Germany, Italy, and other countries. All across Europe, not only specialists in occupational health but managers, union leaders, and the public at large came to recognize workplace mobbing as a real, measurable kind of harm, a destroyer of health and life.

RESEARCHERS WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH A PSYCHOPATH


Posted on LOVE Fraud November 2 for anyone who might be interested in participating in a study to learn more about the victims of Psychopaths so they can learn more about how and why they choose the ones they choose. The survey runs from now until December 31, 2008

Sunday, 2 November 2008 @ 11:43am • Click to go to survey.

Plenty of scientific researchers have studied psychopaths. But few have studied the victims of psychopaths, so there is little documentation of what we have all been through.

Perhaps that is beginning to change.

Lovefraud has been contacted by a researcher from Carleton University in Ottowa, Ontario, Canada. She is conducting a study entitled Victimization, coping, and social support of adult survivors of psychopaths. The graduate student is working under the supervision of Dr. Adelle Forth, who is a colleague of Dr. Robert Hare.

The purpose of the study is “to gain an understanding of the victimization experiences of adult (18+) survivors of psychopaths, in an attempt to raise awareness amongst the general public, and mental health and criminal justice professionals.”

Everyone at Lovefraud is invited to participate.

The researcher has developed a web-based survey. The survey has both self-report scales and open-ended questions. You will be asked to rate the presence or absence of psychopathic traits of the most recent psychopathic individual you have been involved with on one scale. Questions revolve around demographics, your relationship and experiences with the psychopath, including being deceived and its impact on your mental and physical health, your ways of coping, and your support networks. The survey does not ask for any information that might identify you.

Completing the survey will take approximately one hour, and Lovefraud strongly encourages you to participate. If you are concerned about your safety, please be sure to take appropriate precautions.

Here—finally—is a chance to develop information that may make a difference in how victims of psychopaths are viewed and treated. Let’s take advantage of the opportunity.

Go the survey

Data is being collected from now until Dec. 31, 2008. Be sure to add your voice.

Empathic people are natural targets for sociopaths – protect yourself (sott.net)

Dr Jane and Tim McGregor
The Empathy Trap

On initial contact, a sociopath will often test other people’s empathy, so questions geared towards discovering if you are highly empathic or not should ring alarm bells. People with a highly empathic disposition are often targeted. Those with lower levels of empathy are often passed over, though they can be drawn in and used by sociopaths as part of their cruel entertainment.

Trying to Make the Narcissist Accountable is Keeping You Hooked by Melanie Tonia Evans

Trying to Make the Narcissist Accountable is Keeping You Hooked.

Written by Melanie Tonia Evans

 

As we know narcissists often act in ways that defy all definition of normal. They regularly break the rules, tell lies, break promises, degrade, demean and exhibit unjust, aggressive and abusive behaviour that is inappropriate, childish, without remorse and totally inhuman.

It’s likely, if you have suffered narcissistic abuse, that you have a high level of integrity, and it’s likely you’re known as a person who does the right thing.

Please I need your assistance with finding links to share!

please help

 

There are so many sites on the internet which takes hours to research and find. Unfortunately most people don’t have the time to spend to sit at the computer and search, and for many it is too dangerous getting caught searching.

My intent is to have as many links as possible in one place to make it faster, easier and safer for those searching for answers and information.

I need your help!!!!

Please help me by sending me any links to sites that you have found  helpful.  You can send either by e-mail or posting a comment.

I have found that the best way to heal is to help others who are in need, and who are going through the same thing to find the answers they need.  Your contribution will be beneficial to so many.

Thank you in advance for your help!

The Covert Narcissist

Great post !

Emmagc75's Blog

By Tatiana Michelet 

Have you known and trusted someone for years only to finally and painfully wake up to the fact that you’ve been the victim of their extreme narcissistic tendencies?

Are you ashamed to have been fooled by a person who looks so perfect and innocent on the outside, that it’s hard to accept the truth – that you have been used to fuel their narcissistic supply?

For your own sanity, accept what has happened and move on because the person you thought you knew doesn’t exist, all there ever was, was a monster behind a mask.

What is Narcissism

Narcissism is more common than we think and to some extent, we all have a narcissistic streak in us, in fact, in moderate doses it can actually be healthy, contributing to self respect, providing a little ego boost when we need it and a little gratification here and there…
