Narcissism: An Inflated Sense of Self
It’s always a good idea to have some self-worth. We are often reminded of the old adage “you have to love yourself before you can love someone else.” While this is true for some, there are others in this world that can do without the second part of that cliché. For them, self-love and admiration is extreme and results in problematic and unhealthy relationships.
On Tuesday’s show, we will talk about narcissism and the disorders that stem from it in its excessive form. Dr. Harry Croft, Medical Director of Healthyplace.com, will help us understand why these narcissists are so self-involved and whether or not there is treatment out there to help. Plus learn how to identify the diagnostic warning signs of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and how to recognize a narcissist when you see one.
Our guest, Sam Vaknin, author of Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Revisited and contributor to Healthyplace.com, will take us through his personal journey as a self-proclaimed narcissist and tell us how it impacted his life. He will let us in on some secrets of a true narcissist and give us the information we need to deal with one.
