How to Engage a Narcissist in Therapy

Wendy Behary On The Keys To Successfully Treating Narcissists

Underneath it all, the narcissist is skeptical and frightened.

That’s the first thing to remember, according to Wendy Behary, a recognized expert in treating narcissistic men. The second is to use the consulting room as a microcosm of the wider world. Third, and most important, is to stay in the moment.

Engaging without enabling is possible, as Wendy demonstrates in this video clip, part of our upcoming webcast series on effective approaches to working with challenging clients.

Wendy Behary is the founder and director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and of The New Jersey Institute for Schema Therapy, and the author of Disarming the Narcissist. Wendy joins Clifton Mitchell, Dick Schwartz, Janina Fisher, William Doherty, and John Norcross for our video webcast series:
