Many argue that a narcissist cannot be healed. Obviously, there are degrees of narcissism, but overall the attitude is that it’s best not to have a relationship with a narcissist. Narcissistic Personality Disorder has even become a diagnosis. The reasoning is:
because people with this condition present with a great deal of grandiosity and defensiveness, which makes it difficult for them to acknowledge problems and vulnerabilities.
Is there hope for those with NPD and the people who love them? Is there anything we can do if we see early warning signs or actual diagnostic criteria besides end the relationship?
Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this important lecture, as he dissects the deeper roots of narcissism and offers a surprising new approach to treating this condition based on seeing the human psyche in a new light. Our general attitude and confidence in correcting a personality disorder is in direct proportion to our understanding the depths and powers of a personality in the first place. How can we write off a soul, without knowing what that soul is made of? The key to any form of healing is to 1) define the root of the problem (not just its symptoms) and to 2) appreciate and access the psyche’s inner resources. In this talk you will discover to do both in regard to narcissism.
