Narcissists have been much maligned, but according to clinicians who study personality, there are many productive narcissists who succeed spectacularly well in life because they can articulate a vision and make others follow. Elsa Ronningstam, who has been studying and treating narcissists for 20 years, presents a balanced, comprehensive, and up-to-date review of our understanding of narcissistic personality disorder, explaining the range from personality trait, which can be productive, to full-blown disorder, which can be highly destructive. Through fascinating case histories, Ronningstam shows us the inner life of narcissists, the tug of war that exists within them between self-confidence and arrogance on the one hand and painful shame and insecurity on the other. It is the first integrated clinical and empirical guide to assist clinicians in their work with narcissistic patients.

"Understanding and Treating Pathological Narcissism is intended to provide an overview of important issues related to the psychotherapeutic treatment of patients with this debilitating condition. The book draws on the knowledge of highly skilled, well-respected contributors who are at the forefront of clinical and empirical advances in the field, and the concise chapters provide an introduction to various topics that are relevant to the treatment of patients with pathological narcissism. This point deserves emphasis: This book should not be perceived as a comprehensive treatment guide or definitive textbook on pathological narcissism, but rather as a synopsis of key issues that provides the reader with a basic grounding. The complexity of pathological narcissism cannot be addressed comprehensively in the space of a series of short chapters. That being said, the unique focus and the breadth of topics covered herein should make this book a useful clinical reference"--Introduction.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a severe psychological condition that ruins relationships because a narcissist is a self-absorbed individual who only sees things one way, which is their way. In the world of a narcissist there is no room for successful relationship attributes such as mutual consideration or give or take and as a result any relationship that a narcissist is involved in is a lopsided one that solely favors the narcissist. Being involved in a relationship with a narcissist can be a difficult one, mainly because a narcissist has an unrealistic and an inflated view of themselves and suffer from a decreased ability to identify with or recognize the needs or feelings of others, so in turn the partner of a narcissist suffers. Do you feel that you are in a relationship with someone that suffers from the narcissistic personality disorder? Are you a narcissist yourself and would like an understanding of this personality order so that you can salvage your relationship? In his book entitled Narcissism Decoded author Michael Wright explains in great detail how to identify and effectively deal with the Narcissistic Personality Disorder in your relationship. You will learn the following: The characteristics of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder as well as its subtypes How to tell if you are living with a narcissist Common causes of Narcissistic Personality Disorder The problems and difficulties which can arise when in a relationship with a narcissist Important warning signs that it may be time for you to get out of a toxic relationship with a narcissist Tips for living with a narcissist Treatments for Narcissistic Personality Disorder

In the tradition of The Sociopath Next Door, clinical psychologist Joseph Burgo’s The Narcissist You Know is a “clear, easily digestible” (Kirkus Reviews) guide to help you identify, disarm, and coexist with extreme narcissists. In today’s social media and selfie-obsessed culture, we are living in an age of narcissism—and a society that often celebrates this potentially harmful trait rather than understanding it as a psychological disorder. Scientists are beginning to learn that narcissism exists on a spectrum—much like autism—and most of us exhibit some mild narcissistic tendencies. But one in twenty people fall into a category the author refers to as Extreme Narcissism, in which these self-absorbed characteristics result in destructive behavior that harms not only the individual but everyone around them, including friends, family, and coworkers. With more than thirty years of experience studying personality disorders and treating extreme narcissists, Dr. Joseph Burgo has developed a useful guidebook to help you “spot narcissists out there in the wild” (Glamour) and then understand and manage the narcissistic personalities in your own life. Relying on detailed profiles, vignettes from the author’s practice, and celebrity biographies, The Narcissist You Know offers easy-to-understand tools and solutions you can use to defuse hostile situations and survive assaults on your self-esteem should you ever find yourself in an extreme narcissist’s orbit.
