Course Description

Would you like to be the one who gets the upper-hand on a narcissist/manipulator?

  • Tired of being told it is always your fault, you don't do anything right?
  • Tired of trying to explain your side and being told you are crazy, you don't remember right, you're just over reacting, you can't take a joke?
  • Do you wish you knew the techniques to prove that THEY ARE THE PROBLEM, not you?
  • This course is designed to teach you how to do just that.

It doesn't matter who you are, ANYBODY can learn these techniques and get results instantly.

Three sections of this course are designed to prepare someone who is being manipulated and is possibly not in a confident state. They may feel it is their fault and that needs to change. Sections 2, 4 and 8 will cover that particular situation. If this is not you, those sections still may be a good refresher.

Section 3 is necessary in order to use the actual techniques, which are described (and written) in:

  • Section 5 - Level 1: Direct Techniques
  • Section 6 - Level 2: Assertive Techniques
  • Section 7 - Level 3: Power Ending Speaking Technique

If you ever walked away from an interaction with a manipulator feeling upset, misunderstood, or taken advantage of, then I highly recommend you take this course.

  • You will have instant and free access to all future updates.
  • I am here to help. I offer my full support to whatever questions or needs you may have. This can be a highly charged and emotional subject. I know, I have been there and I will be here for you if you want my help.

What are the requirements?

  • There is nothing you need before you start, except the desire to change an undesirable situation.
  • You start from point zero (no experience) and by the end become a person who can stop manipulation.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn 3 Levels of Anti-Manipulation techniques designed to put YOU back in control.
  • Be able to detect 20 different manipulation tactics.
  • Learn 3 techniques that "pull out" the truth, whether they want to admit it or not.
  • Learn how to say no in a way that doesn't damage the relationship or make you feel guilty.
  • Know how to reply to every excuse a manipulator makes.
  • Learn a simple technique that will make a manipulator face their own unreasonable requests.

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone who wants to know "exactly" what to say when confronted by an overbearing, manipulative boss, spouse, coworker, neighbor or a brief acquaintance.
  • Someone who knows they are being manipulated, but doesn't know how to stop it.
  • People who want to learn specifics techniques to stand up to conversation bullies.
  • People who try to please everyone and have a tough time saying no.
  • Anyone who has a friend or loved one that is being manipulated and doesn't realize it.

Section 1: Introduction
Why This Course
What Are The Course Goals
What Type Of People Are Manipulated
What Results Can You Expect
Be Smart - Be Safe
Section 2: Recognize Manipulation

In order to stop a manipulator you need to be able to recognize them.


What is their modus operandi (MO)...their "mode of operating". How do manipulators go about finding a victim and what steps do they take to get that person in a position to be manipulated?


You may be surprised to find out how many tactics there are. You need to know the tactics in order to recognize whether or not they are being used on you. This lecture takes an in-depth look at the "tricks" employed by manipulators. There are 2 downloads. One is a guide that outlines 20 different manipulation tactics. The second download is homework for you to become better at recognizing manipulation,


Most of the time people don't even know they are being manipulated. Understand the psychology of manipulation and learn more about how to uncover the facts.

3 questions

The better you can recognize specific manipulation tactics the better you will be able to call a manipulator out for using them.

Section 3: Learn The Fundamentals

You will be face to face with someone who is deceptive. This is not a fight fire with fire strategy, two wrongs do not make a right. This lecture goes over several tips on how to communicate intelligently.


Making statements allows the manipulator to "shift" what they want the meaning to be. You will learn how to use this fundamental communication key for being successful when dealing with manipulators and narcissists.


It has been said that you cannot learn anything if you are the one talking. When trying to resolve ANY problem you need to learn what the problem is. You need to be able to inquire in a way that brings the information you need out in the open as efficiently as possible.


Very few people use these rules in communication. If you need specific information then you should use specific rules that allow you to get the exact information you want. You can't ask five questions in one breath and expect the person to answer them all.


You will learn the reasoning behind the psychology of these techniques. Knowing why something works helps you to understand it, which in turn makes it easier for you to use it.

Section 4: Get It Right In Your Head

This lecture will help you to understand that being manipulated is not a normal state and whatever reasons are being used to justify it are false.


This lecture covers basic rights you have as a human being. If someone else is taking them away, then they are in violation of your rights. It's a pretty simple concept.


Unfortunately, a byproduct of manipulation is believing it is your fault. This lecture, along with the download, is designed to get you to prove to yourself that it is not your fault and that you are the victim - not the villain.


Manipulators like to use every opportunity to put their victim in a subservient state. Yelling, name calling, or guilt-tripping when their victim has an accident is way to accomplish that. This lecture will show you their opportunistic practice so you can understand it and defend yourself using the techniques you will learn later in this course.
