aeolianSADDER BUT WISER: WORKING WITH THE DEPRESSIVE PERSONALITY

This seminar will explore the introjective defensive style of the depressive personality from a broadly psychodynamic perspective, and discuss constructive ways of approaching the depressive personality in therapy.  The depressive is emotionally sensitive, self-critical, fearful of rejection, and often carries around an inordinate amount of inappropriate guilt and unmourned losses. Healthy depressives often make up for their own perceived failures by trying to heal others and doing good deeds; more disturbed depressives may descend into self-hatred, mood disorder, and even psychotic features.

It is not hard to understand how narcissist and those with traits of narcissistic personality disorder make their way into our lives. Often times they are the most interesting person in the crowd, exhibiting passion and confidence. We marry them, we accept jobs from them, we even admire them at first... but eventually we start to notice the true side of the narcissist. This seminar will explore: (a) ways to understand the narcissist, (b) the impact of narcissists on our lives and (c) strategies for dealing with narcissist in therapy and life.
