On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Dr. Banschick and Steve Peck speak with Dr. Andrew Klafter, director of psychotherapy training at the University of Cincinnati Residency Training Program.

Dr. Klafter has dedicated much of his research to learning more about Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD).   Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with themselves.

Before someone might be classified as being narcissistic, it is important to keep in mind that, like every psychological disorder, narcissistic personality disorder too comes in various degrees.  Going to the extreme, we might argue that each of us has somewhere a narcissist in her/himself.   It even could be said that a narcissistic tendency is important for survival. 

However, in the same context it must be emphasized that, while a narcissistic tendency is constructive, a fully elaborated or developed symptomatic of NPD is nothing but destructive.  So how do you know if your  spouse or even you is a narcissist and what can you do if this is the case?

In this program,  we identify what a NPD is and discuss living with and divorcing a narcissist.  This is not an easy situation to deal with and turns many divorces into a "high conflict" situation requiring special attention.  Dr. Klafter believes a true narcissist can be turned around through therapy and go on to have fulfilling relationships as long as they understand that they have a problem.

In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss the importance of understanding your sexual needs and communicating them to your new partner.

Poor communication skills among couples is one of the main reasons many marriages fail. Although there are many important topics to communicate about in a relationship, discussing your sexual preferences early on in a new relationship can lead to a healthier and more intimate relationship.

Juliana Neiman has a wonderful way of helping us better understand our sexuality, and you may even want to listen to this program with your new partner. It is our hope that this program leads you to a better understanding of what each other's sexual needs are, and ultimately to greater intimacy.

Divorce Source Radio's Steve Peck has a discussion on spending the holidays alone, with DSR The Smart Divorce host, author and divorce consultant, Deborah Moskovitch.

We share our different backgrounds as we discuss Deborah's experience of being alone during Hanukkah, and Steve's during Christmas.  We also touch on the difficulty of being newly divorced at other major life events and celebrations.

As the program progresses, we become a bit more philosophical, as we discuss why and how couples fall out of love in the first place.  And we ask the question, "Are those in high conflict divorces actually more in love with their spouses, and soon-to-be exes, than those who divorce with a mutual understanding that they have both simply fallen out of love?"  What do you think?  Write us your thoughts at DivorceSourceRadio@gmail.com. We'd love to hear from you.

What would you do if you realized that your own most fundamental assumptions about yourself were wrong?  How would you reinvent yourself in your forties if you began to suspect that much of your life had been built on a lie – or at least a critical misperception?  These are the questions that Dr. Loren A. Olson, a prominent Midwestern psychiatrist, faced when he finally confronted the fact that despite almost two decades of marriage to a loving and emotionally compatible woman, he was sexually and romantically attracted to men.

Dr. Olson is author of Finally Out - Letting Go of Living Straight and provides insight and wisdom to others experiencing the same situation.  Whether it be a husband or wife that finds themselves questioning their own sexuality or a family member or children dealing with accepting their new reality.  Dr. Olson help us understand the journey not just from someone who has lived it, but also as a professional psychiatrist.

In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Mark Banschick, M.D. takes a look at divorce and family adversity in the movies.

Dr. Banschick believes there are powerful messages in  movies that relate to divorce and single parenting that provide wisdom and insight to what might be going on in our lives.

Many children's movies have situations with divorced parents, the death of a parent, or being raised by extended family .  Going to one of these well-done movies with your children provides a great opportunity for dialog afterwards and can be a great way of helping your children better understand divorce.  Dr. Banschick tells the tale of The Wizard of Oz like you have never heard it before and provides other examples from ET and The Lion King.

For more movie recommendations for your children as well as yourself, pick up a copy of Dr. Banschick's Intelligent Divorce book, "Because Your Kids Come First," available in the Recommended Reading section of www.DivorceSourceRadio.com.

In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss finding a new partner and falling in love again.

We need to make sure we're not selecting the wrong partner based on our unconscious past decisions.  The way to do this is to recognize your psychological make-up by examining past relationships, making adjustments and moving forward to create healthier emotional and sexual relationships.

Juliana discusses the five important things when choosing a new partner including:

  • Unconscious Motivations
  • Being realistic in your expectations - Don't expect your partner to be perfect, we all have flaws
  • Understand our emotional needs
  • Improving communication skills and conflict resolution
  • Being aware of your need for love and worthiness
