Empathy is More than Words:
Introducing Ground Breaking Tools for NeuoDivergent Relationships
Dr. Marshack introduces three innovative concepts: the Empathy Triad, the 7-Step Interface Protocol, and Radiant Empathy.
The Empathy Triad is the stunning new tool she created to help NeruoDivergent couples communicate effectively. It represents the relationship of Empathy, Context, and Conversation and illustrates why Empathy is more than words.
Radiant Empathy is True North—the highest degree of Empathy achievable. It is key to navigating heartbreaking relationships with those who have Empathy Dysfunction, or EmD. Autism, narcissism, a TBI, alcohol/drug abuse, or the missteps of an Empath can all cause EmD. Radiant Empathy is the ability to deftly integrate courage and wisdom to transcend the heartache of a NeuroDivergent life, achieve sanity, and reboot your life.
Why do kind, empathic NeuroTypicals (NTs) fail to connect with their NeuroDiverse loved ones? They are attempting to use the Empathy Triad Sensitive approach to connect with the NeuroDiverse (NDs), who are the opposite, Empathy Triad Blind.
Dr. Marshack has conceived a breakthrough solution to use when these worlds collide: She offers the 7-Step Interface Protocol. It can start you on your way to Radiant Empathy by bridging the psychological divide between those in a NeuroDivergent relationship.
When Empathy Fails:
How to Stop Those Hell-Bent on Destroying You

If so, you’ve crossed paths with someone operating with Empathy Dysfunction (EmD). In this book, psychologist, Dr. Kathy Marshack, helps you not only understand why this is happening, but how to protect yourself from those hell-bent on destroying you.

Out of Mind—Out of Sight:
Parenting with a Partner with “Asperger Syndrome” (ASD)
Author Kathy Marshack, Ph.D., takes an honest look at the unique issues that come up when you’re co-parenting with an “Asperger partner.” It’s a tough assignment because for the “Aspie” (ASD) parent so many of the interactions within the family circle, that require empathy, are literally out of mind – out of sight. This is essential reading for the Neuro-Typical (NT) parent to learn more about “Asperger Syndrome” and find a way to co-parent, co-exist and even thrive within the “Asperger”/NT family unit. Author Kathy J. Marshack, Ph.D, is a licensed psychologist with more than 33 years of experience as a marriage and family therapist, and a parent of a daughter with AS.
Making It Work at Work and at Home
Caught in the squeeze of trying to maintain two careers in today’s tough corporate climate, more and more couples are giving up their jobs in order to start their own businesses.
Whether they work together in a business or are each owners of a separate enterprise, these entrepreneurial couples face a daunting task–balancing the competing demands of love and work. “The couple bond is a significant element in the success of entrepreneurial businesses,” says psychologist and business consultant Kathy Marshack in Entrepreneurial Couples. “Not only do these partners negotiate with each other for love, sex, status, and support, but they also depend on the relationship for their own self-definition.”
