ADDITIONAL COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This seminar explored theoretical, diagnostic, and treatment issues surrounding narcissistic personality organization and narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). The discussion examined the essential features of narcissism at several levels: archetypal, object relations, self psychology, and behavioral considerations. We compared and contrasted psychodynamic methodologies of assessing narcissistic character pathology with the DSM nosological approach, and reviewed practical considerations for approaching narcissistic personalities in psychotherapeutic and general interpersonal contexts.
