About this Event

Please Note: this is a 2 day event and delegates are required to attend both days:

  1. Friday 6th November - 2pm-5pm
  2. Friday 13th November - 2pm to 5pm

Narcissism is often seen as “a naughty defence” and one we should not have – yet - narcissism is on a spectrum - from the everyday to the pathological dictator, shades of narcissism apply.

This workshop hopes to:

• Explore our own narcissistic traits and how that can stop us seeing not only ourselves, but also our clients.

• Narcissism is a challenge and very slippery. It requires us to understand the theory and history of the word.

• We hope to be able to recognise narcissism and understand its defensive role in ourselves and our clients.

• The second part of the workshop hopes to look at the real trickiness involved in approaching this defence within the therapeutic relationship.

As practitioners we are often left dancing around the edges of someone’s defences and we wonder why. We feel the shame and impotency of this. It is often because that defence has a narcissistic root.

At the end of this workshop I am hoping counsellors will feel able to hold the concept of this defence and also feel more confident to embrace it in the work.

The format will be by discussion, experiential work and case studies.

PLACE: A workshop delivered over two afternoons of three hours each.

We hope to deliver this in a group setting at Apsley House, however if we are unable to do this, we will deliver the training online.

COST: This will cost £65 for both afternoons
