This video has very good information and lots of it. Unfortunately the good Doctor is not that great a presenter. Might I suggest to break up viewing this video into 10 to 15 minute segments.
Perfect Pathological Couple = Borderline Personality Disorder female with a male Narcissist. The core which they both share is a childhood trauma of being abandoned. In adults this manifests itself as a strong “Fear of Abandonment“. She fears being abandoned and so will put up with the Narcissist’s use and abuse. He has no empathy for her feelings, which triggers her fear of him leaving her, and further establishes his control over her. She feeds his need for Narcissistic Supply and so he fears losing that Narcissistic Supply.
There is a 2nd video, from, Judy Rosenberg, which is more centered on the female with Borderline Personality Disorder.I’ll try to post it at a later date.
