This book grew out of my search for understanding of my reactions to a colleague who aroused considerable frustration and anguish in practically everyone this person encountered. However, none of us talked to each other about it and I continued to engage in much self-examination, looking for my unresolved issues that could be making me react so strongly to this person. Nothing I could think of seemed to fit, so I continued to try to dissolve my resistance and defenses, all to no avail. A meeting with colleagues started me on a more fruitful path. The meeting was on a professional concern, but I happened to make a comment that I went home and took two headache pills after a recent conversation with the distressing colleague. I was surprised to hear from every person at the meeting (about ten people) that they, too, had headaches or stomachaches every time they interacted with the person. Although we didn't spend much time recounting our reactions and experiences, I realized that part of the problem was the other person. That realization sent me to the literature, and what emerged was the description for the destructive narcissistic pattern. Everything fit, including the personal reactions I'd had with the colleague. Researching causes and development of the destructive narcissistic pattern (DNP) led me to reflect about the effects on a child when either one or both parents had the pattern. As I continued to explore the research, I began to better understand some of my personal experiences and those that many of my students and clients had reported. Many of their adult reactions, behaviors, and attitudes could be a result of having one or more parents who had a destructive narcissistic pattern. Out of these realizations and experiences emerged this book. But understanding was not enough. If what I'd learned was to truly be helpful, I needed to find a way not only to explain the destructive narcissistic pattern in ways that would be easy to understand, but to provide some personal growth strategies as well. What I wanted to do was to give people some resources for providing themselves with the parenting they needed but did not receive. This was my challenge and what follows is my attempt to provide some understanding and guidance.

Von Eltern erwartet man normalerweise, dass sie um die Entwicklung ihrer Kinder besorgt sind. Es gibt aber auch Eltern, die die Bedürfnisse ihrer Kinder weitestgehend ignorieren und statt dessen ausschließlich auf ihre eigenen fokussieren. Liegt eine narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstörung vor, fordert mancher Vater, manche Mutter bereits von ganz kleinen Kindern Aufmerksamkeit und Bestätigung ein. In diesem Selbsthilfebuch lernen Betroffene, die mit einem narzisstischen Elternteil aufgewachsen sind, wie sie sich Schritt für Schritt aus den Konflikten ihrer Kindheit herausarbeiten und eine befriedigende Eltern-Kind-Beziehung aufbauen können. Unterschiedliche Formen des Narzissmus und die jeweiligen Auswirkungen auf die Kinder werden untersucht. Die Autorin unterbreitet konkrete Strategien, wie Betroffene negative Folgewirkungen ihrer Kindheit erkennen und verarbeiten können und wie es ihnen gelingen kann, ein positives Selbstwertgefühl aufzubauen.

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.
