Part 1: Understanding Sociopaths in Family Law Cases
This webinar will give a basic understanding of the dynamics of sociopaths (aka: antisocial personality disorder), why people fall in love with them, why professionals are easily conned by them, their frequent abusive behavior, and the types of false allegations they frequently make against clients and professionals.
Part 2: Dealing with Sociopaths in Family Law Cases
This webinar will address managing clients with antisocial traits, dealing with sociopaths as the opposing party, investigating the case, presenting such a case in family court, negotiation and mediation, and protecting yourself when necessary.
