Understanding Narcissistic Personality Disorder
February 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Monopolizing conversations? Feelings of entitlement? Belittling others? These are all classic signs of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Do you know of someone who knows the “right” way and all other ways are wrong? Are they cocky, lack empathy, and think they are largely important? NPD causes problems in many areas of an individual’s life, such as relationships, work, school, or finances. In this presentation Dr. Stanford will describe the causes, symptoms, and treatments for this problem personality disorder, as well as, how families might best relate to a loved one with the disorder.
