About the Book

This is the “Go-To” Providers’ Practice manual for ethical, lawful, and clinically sound professional practice in the assessment and treatment of children and families enduring narcissistic abuse where I illustrate the cluster of personality characteristics of abusers and demonstrate their pattern of battering and abuse tactics laying it all out clearly for providers to accurately assess the criminal behavior by a narcissist/batterer before children become absorbed into the hate campaign for their other parent and left in toxic dangerous home environments at risk for death and/or serious psychological injury which lasts a lifetime.

About the Author

Margaret FitzGerald, L.C.S.W. is a licensed clinical social worker in private practice and editor of Nightmare in Hostage Hills. As a friend of Christina Mask, author of her and her children’s true story detailed in Nightmare in Hostage Hills, I have written a Professional Practice Manual for practitioners which details all the wrong steps by various professionals in a custody court case, the correct assessment tools-interviews, checklists, laws enforced, therapeutic directives, etc that should have been done, and finally how to implement these evidence-based interventions to protect children and their mothers from abuse by law and by professional clinical practice.
