Your Steps to Become a Certified Narcissistic Abuse Treatment Clinician

Join Dr. Ramani for eight engaging modules that are designed to equip you with the skills and insight to work with narcissism and antagonistic relational stress.

Through real-world case vignettes and experiential learning sessions, you'll discover a comprehensive roadmap to address narcissistic abuse – including how to apply trauma-informed models and manage the ethical issues that are common with these cases.

Once you've finished this training, you'll become a recognized narcissistic abuse treatment therapist and be fully prepared to help your clients take back their lives!

Module 1: Narcissistic Abuse In-Depth Workshop with Ramani Durvasula

To be effective in working with clients experiencing narcissistic abuse, you must understand the range of antagonistic personality styles – so you can provide clear guidance for your clients.

In this first module, you'll join Dr. Ramani to dive DEEP into the what, why, and how of narcissism and other antagonistic styles. Through review of diagnostic and phenomenological frameworks, current research, case examples and real-world discussions, you'll end this module equipped with the essential insight you need to provide high-quality psychoeducation.

Skill-building opportunities in this module include:

  • Building a strong working knowledge of how narcissism and antagonistic personality styles operate that goes beyond traditional and limited diagnostic criteria.
  • Developing a crucial understanding of existing treatment models and best practices for working with clients with narcissistic personalities.
  • Being aware of co-occurring issues that show up with narcissism, including addictions, ADHD, mood issues, and compulsive sexual behavior.
  • Understanding how narcissistic personality styles translate into the problematic interpersonal behavior we witness in narcissistic relationships.
  • Becoming familiarized with other "narcissism-adjacent" personality styles that have antagonistic characteristics including psychopathy.
Module 2: Dynamics of Narcissistic and Antagonistic Relationships

In this module, Dr. Ramani introduces her approach for working with narcissistic relationships. Using an in-depth case example, she illustrates how Narcissistic and Antagonistic Relationships (NA/ARS) may be revealed in the clinical setting.

Next, Dr. Ramani provides an in-depth exploration of the dynamics of narcissistic relationships. You'll discover the key characteristics of these relationships and explore important topics including betrayal trauma, trauma-bonding, attachment, enabling, and more, and specifically how these themes show up in clients in intimate relationships characterized by narcissism and antagonism. You'll also learn about the narcissistic family system and discover how these often establish roles and patterns that impact adult mental health and relational functioning. Expanding beyond the family, you'll discover how the narcissistic system can play out in other relationships, including workplace relationships and friendships.

In this module you'll discover:

  • The dynamics, patterns, and asymmetries of narcissistic/antagonistic relationships.
  • The phases of the narcissistic/antagonistic relationship cycle.
  • How attachment impacts and is impacted by narcissistic/antagonistic relationship dynamics.
  • How our clients get drawn into these relationships and how they get stuck.
  • The family and systemic roles people may fall into in a narcissistic/antagonistic family system or other relational systems.
Module 3: Trauma and Narcissism: Personality Disorders as Trauma-Related Disorders

In this module, world-renowned trauma specialist, Dr. Janina Fisher, shares critical insights about the relationship between trauma and narcissism. You'll discover the impact of trauma on the brain and how these manifest as symptoms of mental health diagnoses – including narcissistic and antagonistic personality styles.

Janina will then share her revolutionary conceptualization of narcissism and reveal some of the drivers of antagonistic behaviors. Finally, you'll discover how to use parts language to drastically improve your clinical work with both narcissistic clients and those experiencing narcissistic abuse.

Skill-building opportunities in this module include:

  • Understanding why it's so difficult for many clients to leave abusive relationships and partners.
  • Identifying the biggest mistakes trauma therapists often make when working with clients experiencing narcissistic abuse.
  • Viewing narcissistic behavior through the lens of a parts model.
  • Discover how understanding, unblending and integration can help your work with clients experiencing narcissistic relationships.
  • Provide a framework for helping clients understand their complex reactions to these relationships.
Module 4: Working with the Fallout of Narcissistic Abuse

It's essential that clinicians understand not just the phenomenon of narcissistic abuse/antagonistic relational stress (NA/ARS) – but also the fallout from it. In this module, you'll discover the core characteristics of NA/ARS relationships and what this does to clients who are in these relationships.

You'll explore these relational patterns using case examples and discover the psychosocial, behavioral, cognitive, interpersonal, and physical presentations we observe in clients experiencing narcissistic and antagonistic relationships.

Skill-building opportunities in this module include:

  • Observing the signs of NA/ARS relationships and the subsequent fallout of these dynamics in your clients.
  • Learning how to help your clients recognize how their subjective experiences relate to the patterns occurring in their relationship.
  • Differentiating between NA/ARS and other mental health issues such as PTSD, complex PTSD, co-dependency, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and other mental health issues, as well as understanding the co-occurrence of these patterns.
  • Developing a treatment plan that includes a framework for guiding your clients from awareness of their experiences to enacting change.
Module 5: Being Culturally and Intersectionally Informed When Working with Clients Experiencing NA/ARS

Narcissistic Abuse/Antagonistic Relational Stress (NA/ARS) does not occur in a vacuum. There are cultural, intersectional, and systemic factors that impact our clients in these relationships. The asymmetries that are inherent in narcissistic and antagonistic relationships are magnified for clients who experience greater marginalization based on their identities. In addition, cultural and societal issues related to relationships and family must be integrated into any work with clients experiencing these relational dynamics.

In this module, Dr. Ramani will highlight the need to apply guidelines for cultural competency and cultural humility, frame this work using a social-ecological model, and give you the tools and awareness you need to practice as a culturally and intersectionally informed therapist.

Skill-building opportunities in this module include:

  • Assessing and determining the intersectional cultural and systemic factors that may be impacting your client's experience with NA/ARS.
  • Fostering a therapeutic stance of humility and flexibility, so you are optimally able to provide culturally and intersectionally-informed care.
  • Identify your own unique intersectional identities to inform cultural humility and awareness of their impact on your client.
  • Develop a treatment plan that accounts for intersectional factors and structural inequities.
Module 6 & 7: Working with Clients Experiencing NA/ARS: An antagonism-informed treatment approach

In these modules, Dr. Ramani guides you through her framework for treating clients who have experienced Narcissistic Abuse/Antagonistic Relational Stress (NA/ARS). This approach is transtheoretical and can be integrated into existing theoretical orientations you are already successfully implementing with clients. From the conceptual to the practical, you'll get exposure to the knowledge and skills you need to navigate clinical work with these clients.

Through detailed case discussions, Dr. Ramani will demonstrate how to apply this approach with a broad range of clients experiencing NA/ARS. You'll also learn about the best practices for treating NA/ARS and discover how to apply and customize these interventions to the clients and populations you work with...

… so, you're prepared for your next session with a narcissistic abuse survivor.

Skill-building opportunities in the modules include:

  • Learning how to conduct evaluation and comprehensive assessment of NA/ARS with clients experiencing a broad range of relationship types including familial, romantic, social and occupational.
  • Setting treatment goals based on your client's specific NA/ARS-related relationship and experience.
  • Helping clients overcome the fallout of their abuse, implement psychoeducation and radical acceptance, process the grief that this work can evoke in clients, validate the client's experience, address client ambivalence, manage co-occurring mental health issues, and slowly unfold the experience of individuation – whether they remain in the relationship or end it.
  • Becoming equipped with a full treatment framework that includes areas of focus, strategies and interventions, and navigation of the myriad challenges of this work.
Module 8: Legal and Ethical Considerations for Working with Narcissism and NA/ARS

Whether your client is navigating divorce, child custody, or other legal proceedings, it's essential that you understand your role and the resources that are available to you to navigate the court system. It is also crucial to understand some of the standard legal and ethical issues relevant to practice that can become complex when working with clients managing narcissistic/antagonistic relationships.

In this module, forensic psychologist Dr. Catherine Barrett shares her extensive experience and expertise in the legal, ethical, and forensic issues related to working with clients experiencing narcissistic and antagonistic relationships, domestic violence, and coercive control. This module also explores standard issues such as confidentiality and privilege, suicidality, dangerousness, and clinician self-awareness and highlights the unique issues raised for clients experiencing NA/ARS.

You'll discover how to navigate:

  • Issues related to risk, including safety concerns, suicidality and mandated reporting 
  • Confidentiality and privilege when working with both adults and minors.
  • Documentation, access to records, and providing testimony.
  • Protecting yourself, including limits of competency, scope of practice and malpractice insurance
  • The use of social media, sharing testimonials and protecting your client's identity
  • Understanding coercive control and the legal standards involved
  • Family court and working with clients navigating family court.
  • Accessing supervision and consultation.
