This Is a Term Paper Proposal about Narcissistic Personality Disorder in Abnormal Psych
Analytical Treatment of Narcissism:
Since the narcissistic condition is a manifestation of Self-estrangement, the analytical therapist attempts to heal the rupture in the ego-Self axis bond, which was created by the lack of good enough mothering. To heal this rupture the therapist must convey to the narcissist through emphatic means that others do care about him or her; that is the therapist must repair the archetype of the good mother through a maternally caring approach (Asper, 1993).
A maternal approach involves being attentive to the narcissist's needs. Just as a mother can intuitively sense her baby's needs so must the therapist feel and observe what is not verbally expressed by the narcissist. Such a maternal approach allows the narcissist to experience more sympathy towards his or her true feelings and thus gradually the need to withdraw into the narcissistic defense disappears (Asper).
Existential Treatment of Narcissism:
The existential treatment of the narcissist is based on the existential tenant that "all existing persons have the need and possibility of going out from their centeredness to participate in other beings" (Monte).
