Using over two dozen compelling case examples, Bill Eddy explains the dynamics and strange logic of four types of Personality Disorders that appear in legal disputes. These disputes are driven more by personalities than by legal or financial issues. Perhaps half of all legal cases that go to trial today involve one or more parties with a high-conflict personality. In these cases, the conflict is driven more by internal distress than by external events.
After handling more than a thousand legal cases from three professional points of view--as an attorney, mediator and clinical social worker--I have recognized some surprising patterns to the high-conflict cases that are threatning to overwhelm our courts. The issue's not the issue. It's Personality that drives conflict.
This book explains the logic of Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder and provides practical advice that anyone can use to manage high conflict people -- and to resolve their emotionally draining and costly disputes.
