Broken Heart

About this course

You’ve broken up with your partner. You know this person treated you badly, cheated on you and took advantage of your good nature. In fact, you now believe he or she is a sociopath. So why are you still in love?

If you’ve been dating a sociopath, Donna Andersen, author of, explains that it’s not love that you feel — it’s addiction. Scientists believe that all romantic love is addictive. But because of how sociopaths hijack the human bonding system, involvement with these disordered individuals is even more addictive.

No matter how broken-hearted you feel after dating a sociopath, it’s possible to recover. With this webinar, you’ll learn how.
