Training Description
A sense of entitlement and callous disregard for the rights and feelings of others are the captivating, irritating, and sometimes frightening behaviors that introduce us to individuals with Narcissistic and Antisocial Personality Disorders. How can these people be so sensitive to criticism and humiliation? Why do they act with such rage when they don’t get what they want? Where is their empathy-if they had any to begin with-for the plight of others? This presentation will explore the current state of the science in our diagnostic understanding and treatment of narcissistic and antisocial individuals, with a particular emphasis on differential issues, gender, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, medication, psychopathy, dangerousness, and risk management. NOTE: This training was filmed in front of a live audience at an event organized by Specialized Training Services.
