How to deal with narcissists? This course increases your understanding of narcissism, its dynamics, and opportunities for personal development.
Relationships with narcissists are toxic and harmful and can cause a lot of stress. Whether we have to deal with a narcissistic parent, a narcissistic co-worker or boss, or a narcissistic partner, at some point in our lives, we are faced with challenges to manage these relationships and set healthy boundaries.
First, we need to recognize narcissists and their behaviors. There are different types of narcissism. Most of us are familiar with the loud and grandiose showboating type of narcissist who is full of him/herself. But there are covert, malignant, and communal types as well. Craig explains in this course what narcissism is and how we can identify the different types.
The narcissist is a deeply wounded person who seeks glory because of an underlying lack of self-love. Narcissistic people feel empty unless other people supply them with admiration. They are boundless in their entitlement; ‘Me First Forever’.
This course explores opportunities for growth and insight that grappling with narcissism offers us. It also offers a look inward and our own narcissism. How do we manage narcissism in others? How do we deal with our own narcissism? How do we deal with the underlying forces that drive us? Do we recognize the deeper call in the encounters with narcissists? What do myths and fairytales tell us about this?
Craig Chalquist has also taught the highly-rated course on codependence here on Jung Platform. Codependents often have narcissists in their lives and narcissists have codependents in their lives, as you will find out in this course.
This course is ideal if
- You want to understand dysfunctional relationships better and identify the behavior patterns that drive narcissists.
- You are seeking guidance for how to deal with a narcissist.
- You want to identify what in your personal development is asking your conscious attention through the encounter with a narcissist.
- You focus on your own wellbeing and mental health and want to heal from the damaging effects (‘narcissistic abuse’) of your relationship with a narcissist.
