How to recover emotionally from the sociopath
After profound betrayal by the sociopath, it may feel like you can never trust and love again. But Donna Andersen knows that true emotional recovery is possible. She’s experienced it herself.
How do you recover emotionally? By allowing yourself to gently feel your internal wounds. When you do, an amazing thing happens — the pain dissipates, and you feel better.
To help you through the process, Donna offers a new service called Deep Emotional Release, with 90-minute sessions available via phone or Zoom. You may also be interested in the Personal Recovery Package, which adds on the five webinars of the Lovefraud Education and Recovery Masterclass.

Sociopathy is not illegal — what do we do? • Tuesday, March 21 at 8 pm ET
Even though their behavior is atrocious, unethical and immoral, sociopathy is not illegal. People aren’t arrested because they have a personality disorder.
I’m Donna Andersen, author of Lovefraud.com, and tonight I’ll talk about the fact that sociopathy is not illegal, and what that means when we’ve been wronged. At the end of my presentation, I’ll answer your questions. To join the chat or ask a question, please subscribe to my Youtube channel.
Donna Andersen’s newest book: ‘Senior Sociopaths’
Do you know someone who is over age 50 and is still making your life miserable? Someone who never grows up and never calms down? Maybe you’re involved with a senior sociopath.
The myth that sociopaths burn out as they age has been busted. Donna surveyed 2,377 Lovefraud readers and 91% reported that the conventional wisdom of “aging out” shared by many psychologists is just not true. Senior sociopaths — perhaps numbering 14 million in America — remain as bad or worse after age 50. All the details are in Donna’s new book, Senior Sociopaths: How to Recognize and Escape Lifelong Abusers.

Lovefraud research on senior sociopaths published in scientific journal
The conventional wisdom in the psychology field is that symptoms of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD)/psychopathy decrease as affected individuals reach middle age. New research by Lovefraud Education and Recovey challenges this view. Survey respondents described romantic partners, family members, work colleagues and friends who they believed showed traits of ASPD/psychopathy and were over age 50. Of those who knew the individuals both before and after 50, 93% reported that their manipulation, deceit and antisocial behavior were just as bad — or worse — as they aged.
Surviving Senior Psychopathy: Informant Reports of Deceit and Antisocial Behavior in Multiple Types of Relationships, by Donna Andersen, of Lovefraud Continuing Education, and Emma Veltman and Martin Sellbom, of the University of Otago, reports that antisocial behavior does not necessarily “burn out” with age. The paper was published by the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology.
Researchers seek intimate partners of psychopaths
Sara Lapsley is a PhD student at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Adelle Forth. They are conducting a study to improve our understanding of the experiences and impact of being in a romantic relationship with someone who may have psychopathic traits.
They are seeking participants 18 years old or over who have had a romantic relationship with someone who may have psychopathic traits. Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires that measure anxiety, depression, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress. There are also questions that ask about the experience of being harmed (including physical, emotional, and financial harm), as well as questions on participants’ personality features, past history, resilience, coping and social supports. The survey takes between 45-60 minutes to complete.
Those who have experienced financial harm will also have the option of participating in an online interview that focuses on the effects of financial harm. For more information, please see the recruitment flyer.
