Modern Therapy Approaches for Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Napier
October 15 @ 9:00 am - October 16 @ 5:00 pm$365 – $425
Personality disordered patients pose a unique challenge to any therapy and in this category the narcissistic patient is amongst the most dif cult to engage. Their demanding interpersonal style often threatens the therapeutic alliance thus endangering the most effective factor in the treatment process. Therefore treatments of these clients often fail. The intention of the workshop is to offer clinicians therapeutic tools to navigate these challenges better by drawing on the wealth of recent developments in treatments of personality disorders (PD) and integrating these advances to the specific pathology of the narcissistic client.
Presenter: Tobias Schulze
Clinical Psychologist, MNZCCP
Trained in Germany as a psychotherapist and having worked many years in inpatient units with server and chronic ill clients, I have come to value a psychodynamic understanding of client pathology (Relational Psychoanalysis, Transference Focused Psychotherapy and Mentalizaton Based Therapy) in an effort to find ways that would work to reduce the suffering of clients I met. I have specialized over the years in the treatment of personality disorder (here specifically narcissistic personality disorder), recurrent and chronic psychiatry disorders and complex trauma. I have immigrated to NZ in Oct 2015 have worked for the adult mental health community team in Napier (HBDHB), and am now full-time in private practice.
