Online Training – Healing From the Narcissistic Wound

May 12 Login to Zoom.com 8:30am ; Training 8:45am-4:00pm (EDT) $169, 6 CEUs Presenter: Eliezer (Michael) Schlein, LCPC Zoom.us, MD + Google Map

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to two of the most important topics our clients are facing. Narcissism is a menacing quality of self-absorption that our clients have encountered in childhood, in romantic relationships… and in their selves. Perfectionism has been termed by many as a transdiagnostic model that can explain the perseverence of suffering that many of our clients have. Extra focus will be given in this class to introduce brand new ways of looking at these issues as well as effectively helping our clients heal from them.

Only a brief description of CBT approaches to working with perfectionism will be given. Instead, emphasis will be given to relational conceptualizations of perfectionism and narcissism as well as relational interventions that target the core of the trauma.
