Meet Your Teacher

Dr. Les Carter is a best selling author and therapist who has semi-retired to Waco, Texas. In the past 40+ years he has conducted more than 65,000 counseling sessions and many workshops and seminars.  He specializes in anger management and narcissistic personality disorder. In 2018 he founded the Surviving Narcissism YouTube channel and the Dr. Les Carter YouTube channel. His words: “In my history of conducting anger workshops, it became abundantly clear that self absorption, control cravings, and the lack of empathy were at the base of most interpersonal problems. So my therapeutic focus went deeper into the direction of understanding narcissism as a means of finding resolution to mood and relationship strains.” YouTube has provided the perfect platform for communicating his insights about narcissism. His goal is simple: explain narcissism and its powerful impact upon relationships, then offer alternatives for healthy living.

    Wrapping Up

    • Ready, Set, Connect- Conclusion


  • What is this course all about?

    Relationship skills are what separate a healthy person from a narcissist. Not everyone, though, has been guided through the essentials that make relationship connections most gratifying. In this course we will highlight the skills needed to create safeness inside relationships. Special emphasis will be given to building empathy, managing conflicts well, and living authentically. While attention will be given to specific behaviors, we will also focus on the inner mindset needed to make the outer traits succeed.

  • Is this course self-paced or do I need to be available at specific times?

    Great question! This course is 100% self-paced so you can access the material on your own time and at your own speed.

  • Who is this course designed for?

    This course is designed for: people exiting controlling relationships, looking to rebuild; those who had little "hands on" training in their early years regarding relationship connections; lifelong learners seeking to take their relationship skills to a new level of satisfaction. The insights in this course can be applied to marriage, extended family, social settings, work environments, and beyond.

  • How many modules, videos, lessons and hours are included in this course?

    The course consists of five distinct modules, each addressing a particular topic. The modules consist of 4-5 lessons. The lessons are presented with a written format and a video accompanying each written lesson. Most video lessons are approximately ten minutes. In total the course features over 4 hours of videos. The central feature of the webinar is the set of personal reflection questions at the end of each lesson. These questions guide the student toward personalized pragmatic applications drawn from each lesson. It is crucial to understand that the lessons are more than just talking points, but designed for individualized personal introspection.
