"When I purchased Dr. McBride's virtual workshop I only had a vague idea of what to expect. This was such a new therapeutic concept, but the availability and flexibility it offered was appealing to me. After purchasing it the link arrived immediately via email. And upon opening it up I was pleasantly surprised. Immediately I could tell how well thought out and organized the program was. The information was all in one place. There is no downloading, hopping around the Internet or navigating link after link to get additional or pertinent information. Everything you need is on one page and very easy to access.
The sessions are presented exactly as you would expect if you were physically attending a workshop but better! This is because you have the option to stop, start, rewind the video and take notes. The length of the video sessions range from eight minutes to 20 minutes and include downloadable and printable worksheets that outline the exercises to complete before you move on to the next session.
The beauty of these exercises is that it uses journaling as the tool toward healing. And it works!! That's because journaling is writing out what you know or think you know. The healing comes with the writing! It's like your "memories" are now safely documented
which alleviates the stress you may be experiencing from keeping those memories current, alive and unresolved. Journaling allows you to move forward in the healing process. If you tried to get through this workshop without journaling, it wouldn't work. It's the tool that "cleans the house" at the conscious and subconscious level. You can't move forward until you make room.
Additionally, journaling has released suppressed memories that I wouldn't have discovered otherwise. It's amazing what your mind reveals to you when you "take out the garbage". Some of the journaling exercises opened up a plethora of unresolved loathing and anger I harbored unwittingly. To make these discoveries has propelled my healing process because "you don't know what you don't know". And I would have stayed in the dark had I not found the key that unlocked the door.
Currently, I'm a little more than halfway through the workshop. I've lowered the anchor in order to spend more time on certain exercises and work through some stuff that's clearly at the control center of my NPD abusive experience. But I feel amazing! I still have a way to go before I morph from "survivor" to "thriver", but the difference is I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And it has never been a more welcome sight!
To strongly recommend this virtual workshop to any DONM would be an understatement. I have seen positive changes in my life since starting this program. Starting is the hardest part! Procrastination, self-doubt and the cutting edge technology of it all can be a catalyst for paralysis. If you really want to experience positive changes in your life and escape from the prison NPD abuse has put you in, Dr. McBride's virtual workshop is your "Get Out of Jail Free" card."

This season, we gather together with friends and family, and cannot help but feel deeply touched by the tragedy of December 14th in Newtown, Connecticut. As a nation and around the world it is an understatement to say that we are overcome with deep sorrow, disbelief, shock, and horror. We are all asking…why? How could this happen? What can be done?
