Does Your Teen Struggle With Our boys ranch can treat your son with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (or Narcissism, or NPD), a learned behavior disorder in which he is excessively self-absorbed, and exhibits tremendous conceit. As a Narcissist, he believes himself to be intensely exceptional, and may be condescending toward others, as if no one else is quite up to his level.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder?
Diagnosis for Narcissistic Personality Disorder includes many of these symptoms: an inappropriate sense of self-import, lack of compassion, takes advantage of others, an unjustifiable anticipation of especially favorable treatment, requires excessive admiration, is engaged in fantasies of ideal love, or limitless success or power.
How Our Boys Ranch Can Treat Your Son’s Narcissistic Personality DisorderIf not treated, complications may extend beyond academic problems and with relationships, to include depression, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts.
Schema therapy (a combination of elements from cognitive, behavioral and gestalt therapy along with object relations’ treatment) is one of the more effective treatments. A main purpose of this therapy would be to diminish your son’s insistence that others see him as he wishes to be seen and instead, adapt to reality.
In serious cases, he can be controlling and self-absorbed, even fanatical and dismissive of the therapist’s thoughts.
