Welcome friends and fans. Thank you for following my work and sharing your feedback. I deeply appreciate the thoughtfulness and gratitude so many of you have conveyed in your comments and messages. I’ve been moved not only by the pain and power of your stories, but the courage you’ve shown in sharing them. I wish I could reply to each of you, at length, but due to the volume of correspondence I receive, I’m no longer able to. But please know that I read all your questions and comments and often address the issues they raise in my articles. One other disclaimer: HIPPA law restricts psychologists from providing therapeutic advice or conducting sensitive conversations through social media or email. I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. If you’d like to set up a confidential face-to-face, skype, or phone consultation, please call my office: 617-491-1660. You can find fees here. I‘m grateful your interest and support! - Craig Malkin.


What's The Basic Definition Of Narcissism?

Thursday, June 09, 2016



I'm excited to release the first in this series of unseen video snippets, where I share some bitesize pieces of information on the subject of narcissism. The paperback version of my critically acclaimed book Rethinking Narcissism is out on July 5th, so if this subject interests you subscribe below to receive updates as we countdown to the release! 

"My most basic definition of unhealthy narcissism is an addiction to feeling special. It is an attempt to cope with the fear of depending on others in healthy ways. There’s lots of ways to cope with that feeling - I’m going to get into that when I talk about parenting next, lots of ways to cope with that. Unhealthy narcissism or an addiction to feeling special is just one and you can choose from a range of possibilities for how you can soothe yourself to feel special."


Sign up for my newsletter, for more tips and advice, as well as information on my book, Rethinking Narcissism, devoted to understanding and coping with narcissism in all its forms, in our friends, lovers, colleagues-and even ourselves.
