Divorcing a Narcissist with Tracy Malone | Episode 94

Divorce at Altitude Podcast

This week we are talking about narcissistic abuse and the issues that arise when navigating divorce with someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. We are joined by Boulder-based author, narcissistic abuse survival coach, and founder of narcissistabusesupport.com, Tracy Malone.

Tracy is a survivor of narcissistic abuse herself and she is here today to share her experience and discuss her book, Divorcing Your Narcissist: You Can’t Make This Shit Up. In this episode, Tracy walks us through the different types of narcissists and the various war tactics they might bring to a divorce scenario. We learn how to identify their projections as confessions and we discover the critical importance of paying attention to detail and ensuring you have a watertight strategy that protects you from future abuse.
