Transforming Narcissism by the Act of Understanding

Transforming Narcissism by the Act of Understanding

Neville Symington presents “Transforming Narcissism by the Act of Understanding”. It is a source of pain and suffering for a person to be utterly alone and alienated from any shared experience, as often is the plight of the narcissist. In this talk Neville tells the story of a patient who was suffering from being in this isolated state and how an engagement with her opened a doorway to a new and shared experience. Often this is the transformation required in the therapy of narcissistic disorders. A shared experience does not cancel out suffering but enables it to be embraced as part of the human condition, a process that is inherent in both spiritual and psychotherapeutic healing traditions.
