I’m Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, The Relationship Help Doctor. Not only do I help my clients worldwide recognize, understand, and gain the perspective they need to see the patterns, traits, and cycles of relentlessly difficult, disturbing, and toxic people, I created a term for them, Hijackals®.

When you go to the “Google Goddess” for help, you’ll often read clinical terms for behaviors. These really can’t help you much because you are not able to diagnose. However, the non-clinical term, Hijackals, allows you to recognize how these folks operate in the world, why you were attractive to them, and attracted by them, and know what to change to create healthy relationships. Hijackals are “people who hijack relationships, for their own purposes, while relentlessly scavenging them for power, status, and control.”  Know one?

We think of them as difficult people…at a minimum. Everyone has trouble with them at some time, and those at home have trouble with them most of the time.

Is this sounding familiar?  You may be with a Hijackal.

Knowing clinical terms for what might be going on with your partner, ex, parent, or adult child doesn’t really help you when you’re dealing with the relationship daily.   That’s why I created the term, Hijackals.

I help their partners, exes, adult children, friends, and co-workers name, see, and recover from what has been–and is–crazy-making behavior and interaction. That’s why I removed the psychological labels and made clear the pool of traits from which Hijackals drink!
