Dealing with Hollywood Hijackals® featuring Rhoberta Shaler PhD.

Have you worked with a toxic person or business that has made you really rethink your work as a writer, screenwriter, filmmaker, or other creative pro? Does all of Hollywood feel like a den of thieves and difficult people? If so, you'll find this interview with Dr. Rhoberta Shaler important to hear. 

As a relationship consultant, mediator, and speaker, Rhoberta Shaler, PhD ( helps the partners, employees, exes, and adult children of the relentlessly difficult people she calls "Hijackals®."

Her work has been featured on FoxNews, PsychCentral, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, The Good Men Project, eHarmony, Care2, Greatist, Pulse, and The Needs, among many others. She is the author of sixteen books, including Escaping the Hijackal Trap: The Definitive Guide to Dealing with Relentlessly Difficult People. Even the US Marines have enlisted her help.

You can learn more about Dr. Shaler’s work at and via her YouTube channel, ForRelationshipHelp. She is also host of two podcasts: Emotional Savvy: The Relationship Help Show and Save Your Sanity: Help for Handling Hijackals®!

In this video Dr. Shaler discusses:

  • Why she uses the term Hijackals (R) to describe predatory and abusive people instead of more clinical terms like Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder, and Psychopath.
  • Why some people seem to attract and be attracted to Hijackals and others never seem to encounter them at all.
  • How and why Hijackals destroy careers, relationships, projects, and people and why those witnessing their behavior so frequently don’t step in to stop it.
  • Why trying to help a Hijackal be a better person usually results in more damage rather than an end to the abuse.
  • An initial understanding of how to work with, or live with, a Hijackal when walking away is too expensive.
  • Why most people who have had to cope with Hijackals for prolonged periods of time need professional help to recover.
