I will be facilitating this seminar at the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium this year on behalf of Wendy Behary, as she will be, regretfully, unable to present this season.
The #MeToo movement has given countless survivors of sexual abuse and misconduct the validation they needed to seek treatment. But it’s also brought attention to the challenges of treating narcissistic perpetrators, often not of their own accord, who exhibit belligerence, self-righteous entitlement, denial, and arrogance. In addition to acts of abuse and harassment, narcissists often engage in serial affairs and hypersexual behaviors. In this workshop, you’ll learn proven methods for staying sturdy and empathic when addressing their bullying behavior and defiant denial, and healing the shame and trauma that often underlies their behavior and affects their relationships.
You’ll discover how to:
Help narcissistic clients resolve their early unmet needs, including unconditional love and acceptance, empathy, and tolerance for frustration
Work with narcissists involved in excessive sexual activity that includes pornography, cyber-sexual relationships, prostitutes, and affairs
Use leverage to rebuild fractured relationships between narcissists and those they’ve hurt
Validate the hurt partners of narcissists when doing couples therapy
