Program description from brochure:
A sense of entitlement and callous disregard for the rights and feelings of others are the captivating, irritating, and sometimes frightening behaviors that introduce us to individuals with these personality disorders. How can these people be so sensitive to criticism and humiliation? Why do they act with such rage when they don't get what they want? Where is their empathy-if they had any to begin with-for the plight of others? How can a democratic, wealthy, and educated country appear to be a breeding ground for such self-centered, cold, aloof, unpleasant, and in some cases, very dangerous individuals? This presentation will explore the current state of the science in our diagnostic understanding and treatment of narcissistic and antisocial individuals, with a particular emphasis on differential issues, gender, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, medication, psychopathy, dangerousness, and risk management.
