We Work with Boys with Narcissistic Personality Disorder
We can help your son with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a learned behavior disorder in which he is excessively self-absorbed, and shows extreme vanity. As a Narcissist, he believes he is particularly “special” and unique, and may well be egotistical and condescending toward others, acting as if no one else is on a level to be able to understand him.
Diagnosis for NPD (also called Narcissism) includes many of these symptoms: a grandiose sense of self import, complete lack of empathy, takes advantage of others, has an unwarranted expectation of especially favorable treatment, requires excessive admiration, is engrossed in fantasies of limitless success or power.
Agapé Boarding School – We Can Help Your Son With Narcissistic Personality Disorder
If untreated, complications may go beyond problems at school and with relationships, to include depression, self-destructive behavior, and even suicidal thoughts. Schema therapy (a combination of elements from cognitive, behavioral and gestalt therapy along with object relations’ treatment) is one of the more effective treatments. A main purpose of this therapy would be to decrease your boy’s insistence that others see him as he wishes to be seen, and adapts instead to reality.
In serious cases, he can be controlling and self-absorbed, even intolerant and judgmental of the therapist’s thoughts.
