Call For Papers

Several experts have informally diagnosed Donald J. Trump as a "malignant narcissist." In addition, his own biographer characterized him as a "sociopath." With the election of such a figure to the office of President, and the divisive nature of public response, it is imperative to engage in a broad public conversation about the deceptive, divisive, and destructive patterns of narcissistic abuse. It is equally important to discuss ways to survive these abuses of power -- and to engage in discourse about modalities of recovery as individuals and communities.

This anthology will help everyday readers understand the signs and effects of narcissistic abuse in private and public life. Envisioned as an interdisciplinary publication for general readership, this book will offer basic overviews of psychological, sociological, and political perspectives of narcissistic dynamics in various contexts. The nature and effects of narcissistic abuse in personal relationships, family systems, social and business organizations, and political systems will be discussed with the goal of creating general understanding for a broad readership. Personal narratives and examples from popular culture will be offered as illustrations that the average reader can understand.

Therefore we are requesting papers in the following categories

identifying narcissism
recognizing patterns and effects of narcissistic abuse
one-on-one relationships
family systems
social and business organizations
political systems

In addition, we seek essays on understanding:

principles and stages of personal recovery
principles and stages of recovery-in-community.

This publication will be peer reviewed before submission to the publisher. Completed essays will be approximately ten pages (3000 words) in length and free of academic jargon.

Contact with CV, 250-word essay proposal and outline.

Please paste CV, proposal and outline into one email. Proposals are due by March 31, 2017.
