It's All Your Fault episode 214

Times of High Risk: The Most Dangerous Times with HCPs

People with high conflict personalities have strong unconscious fears that are easily triggered: abandonment; humiliation, being dominated; ignored; and other major losses. When triggered, this is a greater concern with high conflict people than with the average person.

In this episode, Bill and Megan discuss:

  • the types of losses that can trigger high risk:
    • divorce
    • new relationship partner
    • job termination
    • eviction
    • neighbor dispute
    • other losses
  • whether these are predictable
  • how to be aware
  • how to protect yourself and handle:
    • divorce situations when delivering bad news or other big changes
    • workplace situations, especially when disciplining or terminating someone’s employment
    • neighborhood/homeowner’s or condo association meetings
