Expert on sociopaths in relationships
Donna Andersen is author of Lovefraud.com and three books: Love Fraud—How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan, Red Flags of Love Fraud—10 signs you’re dating a sociopath, and the Red Flags of Love Fraud Workbook.
Donna has appeared on television shows including ABC News 20/20, Who the Bleep Did I Marry?, My Life is a Lifetime Movie and The Ricki Lake Show. She has been interviewed for radio shows, print articles and web posts.
Although Donna initially learned about sociopaths the hard way—by marrying one—she has degrees in psychology and journalism, and is now an expert on sociopaths in relationships.
Approximately 12 percent of the population are sociopaths — people who could be diagnosed with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorders. That means there are 30 million of them in the United States — and most are not in jail, they are on the loose, living among us. Knowing how to spot them, and how to get away from them, could save the health, finances and even lives of the people in your organization. Donna is available to speak to professional and community associations, women’s groups, and students.
