Why victims/survivors have a better understanding of sociopathic behaviour than most psychologists

I agree with this. Having a personal real life understanding of being on the receiving end of more than one of these, gives you a deeper understanding.

Dating a Sociopath

I had spent a lot time in professional working environments working with statutory homeless. This included many diagnosed psychopaths/sociopaths. I had worked alongside mental health teams, had trained for and worked with victims of domestic violence. I completed a course at University in Counselling and another course in life coaching.

Yet, none of these experiences, had given me the depth of knowledge that I had of understanding sociopathic behaviour more than being personally involved with more than one.  It is a depth of understanding that was not available to me in a working or educational capacity.

I spent the last year in support forums for victims. This led me to understand the patterns of behaviour, how they were universal, and how stories were almost identical. For a long time in the relationship I was under the mask of illusion, I didn’t want it to be true – but pain forced…

Plus all their millions spent in their religious ways, with the Vatican City, paying out millions per year to silence abuse survivors abused within the Catholic Church.

I also see clearly how non Christians don’t understand there is a difference between religion and relationship – after all many people who attend Church every Sunday don’t understand this either. Continue reading
