(NEW) In-Person Training – Master Class: Understanding and Managing the Narcissistic Personality

June 9 Registration & Breakfast 8:15 am; Training 8:45 am - 4:15 pm (EDT) $199, 6 CEUs Presenter: Daniel Lerner, MS, MA, Ph.D. Hilton Garden Inn, 4770 Owings Mills Blvd. Owings Mills, 21117 + Google Map

This masterclass will explore the traits found in people with narcissistic personality disorder and process some of the more common red flags that indicate we are interacting with a narcissist both in the workplace and in our personal relationships.

Dr. Lerner will explain how narcissists often acquire high levels of success and power while still experiencing a sense of emptiness in their lives. He will offer specific, effective strategies that explain how to respond to a narcissist in ways that don’t increase their dysfunctional power and control. Just as importantly, participants will explore what not to do when interacting with a narcissist to avoid inadvertently giving them the upper hand. Participants will come away with concrete tools to better manage the narcissistic boss, parent, sibling, spouse or co-worker.

Registration for this workshop closes one day before the workshop date.
