You are not paranoid...they are out to get you!

People get along when they empathize with one another. However, there are those in our society who operate with little or no empathy. They victimize others, as they lie, cheat, and steal. They take without regard and live as if they are the end all. It’s not a matter of if you’ll encounter someone like this, but when.

Author Kathy Marshack, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist with more than 40 years of experience, and she knows first-hand the power these types of individuals can have on our lives. In her newest book, “WHEN EMPATHY FAILS,” she tells her unbelievable true story about a 12-year perfect storm of divorce, lawsuits, assault, cyberstalking, false arrests, predatory prosecution, and the loss of her children to parental alienation. Throughout all these experiences, she noticed a common theme – people behaving with Empathy Dysfunction (EmD).

Dr. Marshack shares hard-learned lessons on how you can protect yourself from people who literally couldn’t care less about you. Furthermore, she introduces the Empathy Dysfunction (EmD) Scale, to help you identify people who have a dysfunctional lack of empathy, so you can shield yourself from the destruction they leave in their wake.

It takes more than courage to stop unscrupulous people in their tracks; the ultimate protection is to increase your own empathy. If you’ve been hurt by someone with Empathy Dysfunction, maybe too many times to count, applying the warrior training offered in Dr. Marshack’s book will help you reclaim the beautiful life you’re meant to live.

“WHEN EMPATHY FAILS” is an US~Observer publication. The US~Observer assisted Dr. Kathy Marshack in her fight against corrupt individuals who sought to criminalize her. Read their first article about this battle at
