Effective Treatment of Borderline and Narcissistic Personality Disorders
Psychodynamic theoretical evolution of Ego Psychology to Object Relations Theory and Self Psychology parallels increased prevalence of preoedipal pathology in The Disorders of The Self.
Theoretical advances offer greater precision in evaluation through differential developmental diagnosis, based upon pinpointing developmental arrest in phases of early attachment. The technique of intervention is further refined to access specific defensive structure as well as the underdeveloped “real self.” Understanding of transference and countertransference and projective identification has broadened, further enhancing effectiveness.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder -Technique of Intervention
The Narcissistic Personality Disorder-Technique of Intervention presentation or seminar demonstrates a style and technique of intervention designed to minimize ongoing mobilizations of defense and maximize therapeutic effect. Assessment criteria and treatment considerations are presented for work with narcissistic individuals and couples.
Therapists everywhere are experiencing a dramatic increase in patients presenting for individual and couples’ psychotherapy who fit the diagnostic criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder. These patients present with a powerful defensive structure specifically designed to protect them from vulnerability in relationship with self and others. Since this is operative in the transference, clinicians typically experience great difficulty gaining access and intervening therapeutically.
Treatment of the Personality Disordered Couple
The Treatment of the Personality Disordered Couple presentation or seminar focuses on clear diagnostic assessment, specific treatment plans and effective intervention strategies in promoting healthy growth and intimacy.
Personality Disordered partners act-out their developmental arrest within the relationship to protect the fragile underdeveloped “real self.” Since these relationships are almost solely based upon defense, the treatment is extremely challenging.
Advances in understanding the Disorders of The Self facilitates identification and understanding of each participant’s “developmental dilemma” and the nature of their interaction in the relationship.
