Dealing with Psychopaths. The textbooks please.

I've just found out that there are psychopathic personalities in my family and a disturbing trend in my community. I do not want to continue to be a victim or to allow them any leeway in my life. The time has come to put up every single mechanism to keep them at a distance, away and in the know that I am not to be messed with on any level. But I also want to rise above this situation in the most elegant, powerful way.
So - putting out the question - where can I learn every single aspect of the inner world of the psychopath and how to actually DEAL with them? Resources online please. Videos, articles, google books, downloads. I am ready for a complete education on the subject.
Am seeking the How To's when dealing with a psychopath, in the family schemata and business world. Defense mechanisms, what works, what doesn't, tone of voice, innuendos to use, when to defend, and when to terminate the connection - with what tools and boundaries.
Thanks so much.
