Realizing My Mother Was A Narcissist

Thursday, September 17, 2015

It's extraordinarily helpful for me to draw on personal experience in my work with clients. It adds a depth of emotion and understanding that's hard to reach when I don't bring some of myself into the room. That's one of the reasons I openly talk about my relationship with my mother inside my book Rethinking Narcissism. She introduced me to the topic in the most immediate and vital way possible. And I couldn't have imagined introducing you, the reader, to narcissism, without describing the very struggles that brought me to the topic in the first place. I thought I'd share some of the background from the introduction of my book. I'd love to hear from you in the comments if you've had anyone in your life you've suspected of being a narcissist, and want to share how that's affected you.

Friday, May 01, 2015

Recently, my colleagues, Shannon Kolakowski, PsyD, Heidi Reeder, PhD, and Ben Michaelis, PhD, and I were interviewed for Forbes, in an article called Recovering Resilience: 7 Methods For Becoming Mentally Stronger. It’s a topic near and dear to my heart, but it’s also one that’s happily become central to discussions of mental health and wellbeing.
