The Narcissistic Process:
A Perspective from Relational
and Integrative Psychotherapy

Richard G. Erskine, Ph.D.
Sponsored by I.AN.T.I. Integrative Transactional Analisys Institute, Rome

A 4-Day workshop: September 28 to October 1,2018
Rome, Italy

The psychotherapy of Narcissistic dynamics often revolves around the client's relational dilemma whether "to need or not to need". This di-lemma results in behavioral characteristics of extreme self-involvement, grandiosity, an absence of empathy and a lack of interest in others, even while others are being used to obtain approval and admiration.

In this workshop we will distinguish between a narcissistic Style, Pat-tern, and a Personality Disorder. We will also discuss the "closet narcis-sist" - the client who is covertly self-centered while acting shy, timid, and ineffective. Dr. Erskine will teach about the aetiology, intrapsychic conflicts, and the relational methods necessary in an effective psycho-therapy of clients with issues of Narcissistic processing.

This workshop is designed for psychotherapists and counsellors who want to achieve excellence in using a Relational perspective in their ther-apeutic work. Participants are invited to bring cases for discussion.
