How I wish that just one “professional” had been sufficiently astute to recognize an anomaly in David and his relationship with Madeline. Things might have had very different results. David might have received counseling or perhaps he would be sitting in jail as a result of being convicted of child abuse. Perhaps the blame lies with the authors of DSM-V. But, Narcissists can be very good at hiding their disorder until a situation threatens their overwhelming need to fulfill their aberrant needs. All I know for sure is that I lost my daughter and I believe there are three psychologists guilty of malpractice.
