Schema Therapy for Narcissism: The Art of Empathic Confrontation 

Live Webinar Presented by Wendy Behary, LCSW

Narcissistic clients are notoriously difficult.  The complexities of these clients can arouse our curiosity, but treating them can arouse our sense of inadequacy.   This live webinar will help you establish a sturdier foothold for empathically holding narcissistic clients accountable and setting necessary limits. You will acquire a working understanding of schema therapy as applied to narcissism in order to help you understand your client’s life themes, as well as your own, and how these themes interact in therapy.  By gaining a firmer grasp on your own schemas and a better understanding of the narcissistic client’s makeup, you can overcome obstacles in treating narcissism and maintain the necessary leverage for healing.

Wendy Behary is the founder and director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The New Jersey Institute for Schema Therapy. She has been treating clients, training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than twenty years. Wendy has co-authored several chapters and articles on Schema Therapy and Cognitive Therapy. She is the author of "Disarming the Narcissist...” (New Harbinger, 2013) translated in 10 languages.  She has a specialty in treating narcissists and supporting those around them,  She lectures both nationally and internationally to professional and general audiences on schema therapy, and the subject of narcissism, interpersonal relationships, anger, and dealing with difficult people.
