Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a mental health condition characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an obsessive need for attention and admiration, and a lack of empathy and consideration for others.

People with NPD often have an inflated sense of self-worth, are preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, or beauty, and may harbor feelings of envy or resentment towards others who they perceive as competition or a threat. They may also exploit others to achieve their goals or manipulate situations to get their desires met.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

NPD can be challenging to treat because people with this disorder often deny or minimize their symptoms and resist seeking help from others.

Treating someone who has been abused by a narcissistic parent or partner can be a complex process and would require the help of a qualified mental health professional. Some potential treatment options could include therapy to help the individual understand and cope with the impact of the abuse, as well as working to identify and break patterns of behavior that may be influenced by the abuse. In addition, support groups or other resources could be helpful in providing a community of people who have gone through similar experiences and can offer empathy and validation. Ultimately, the best course of treatment will depend on the individual’s unique situation and needs.

At Insight Mind Psychotherapy Services, we offer individual and group therapy to people who were been abused by a narcissistic parent or partner based on CBT and Schema Therapy techniques.

Schema Therapy can be a very effective treatment for those who have been abused by a narcissist partner or parent. It is a form of psychotherapy that is specifically designed to help people identify and change negative patterns in their thinking, feeling, and behavior that stem from early experiences of abuse or neglect.

One of the key aspects of Schema Therapy is the concept of “schemas,” which are deep-seated emotional and behavioral patterns that develop during childhood and continue to impact a person’s experience and relationships throughout their life. When someone has been abused by a narcissist partner or parent, they may develop negative schemas such as abandonment, mistrust, or a need for perfectionism that can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms and patterns of behavior that exacerbate their emotional distress.

Schema Therapy helps people identify these negative schemas and develop more adaptive coping strategies that promote positive change and healing. By working with a therapist who is trained in Schema Therapy, someone who has been abused by a narcissist partner or parent can learn to recognize their negative patterns and replace them with healthier ones that promote greater emotional stability, self-confidence, and resilience. The result is often a more fulfilling life and greater personal growth.
