Timothy Hill Helps Troubled Boys With
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Timothy Hill Academy can help your boy with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a learned behavior disorder in which he is exceptionally preoccupied with himself and exhibits tremendous self-importance. As a Narcissist, he believes he is intensely “special” and unique and may well be self-centered and patronizing toward others, acting as if no one else is on his level.
Diagnosis for NPD (also called Narcissism) includes many of these symptoms: a grandiose sense of self-import, utter lack of understanding, taking advantage of others, has an unjustifiable expectation of especially favorable treatment, requires disproportionately high regard, and is engaged in fantasies of immeasurable success or power.
Helping Your Teen Who Struggles With Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Left untreated, complications may go beyond problems at school and with relationships to include depression, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts.
Schema therapy (a combination of elements from cognitive, behavioral and gestalt therapy along with object relations’ treatment) is one of the more effective treatments. A main purpose of this therapy would be to diminish your son’s contention that others see him as he wishes to be seen, and adapts instead to reality.
In serious cases, he can be controlling and self-absorbed, even intolerant and judgmental of the therapist’s thoughts.
