Description

Clients with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are often reluctant to attend therapy and can be difficult to successfully treat. While this can be a rewarding process, it’s not without its challenges and requires a specific set of skills.

But it’s not just the narcissistic client you are likely to see in your office. Often times, it’s the partners and children of the narcissist who are seeking treatment due to being left in their loved one’s dysfunctional wake

This treatment-focused recording will help you learn the skills to successfully work with, and manage, the narcissistic spectrum client, their partners, and their children.

Working with partners in narcissistic spectrum relationships presents unique challenges that require specific therapeutic approaches and skills. This recording will help you gain those skills and maximize therapeutic sessions to lessen relationship difficulties and build resistance to narcissistic spectrum manipulations often seen in clients in narcissistic spectrum relationships.

Children of narcissistic spectrum parents often present with unique and complex symptoms that disrupt therapeutic trajectory and keep them stuck in place. You can affect change in these individuals, you can help them overcome the burdens, guilt, and regret they carry with the tools and techniques learned through this recording.

This unique, fun, and impactful recording will guide you through the process of treating your clients along the narcissistic spectrum, their partners, and their children!
