Becoming a Narcissist Whisperer
Narrative Concepts and Techniques to Working with Narcissistic Personalities
August 24 2018- 1:30pm-4:30pm (Eastern Standard Time)
3 Hours of CEs (NBCC & NAADAC*)
Presented by S. David Hall, PsyD, LMFT, LPC
As the discussion of narcissism, and narcissistic personalities, becomes more prevalent in the wider culture, we may also find that dealing with the therapeutic dynamics of narcissism is becoming more highlighted in our work as therapists. Whether we plan to or not, most therapists end up working with both men and women with strongly narcissistic personality styles at different times, and these patterns of personality and interaction can have significant impact on the course of therapy. Whether we are working with them as parents, spouses, or as individual clients, narcissistic personalities can present with particular challenges in counseling. But when we find ourselves with a better understanding of these personalities, along with effective tools, working with these individuals in counseling can have great reward. Come join us for an engaging and informative training and find your inner Narcissistic Whisperer.
