Working with Narcissism

ID: 5280

What therapist hasn’t seen a patient who displayed the signs of either clinical or sub-clinical narcissism? How many of us have successfully treated one of these individuals either in individual or couples therapy? Narcissists are a notoriously resistant treatment population, and one of the riskiest to work with. Emotional seductiveness, dishonesty, and manipulation are some of the reasons most clinicians prefer to refer these clients elsewhere. As we proceed further into what many social theorists term “The Age of the Narcissist” it will be essential for clinicians to understand how to work with this growing and difficult population. As this treatment population grows, it will be ever-more critical for clinicians to understand how to identify, relate to, and treat narcissistic clients. This workshop will help clinicians to: 1) Discover the traditional, conceptual, and neurobiological explanations of narcissism, 2) Judge case studies and reflect on the clinician’s own terminal ruptures with narcissistic clients, and 3) Integrate the basics of effectively treating narcissistic clients.
