In this eight-week course, we will focus on the dynamics and treatment of Narcissistic and Borderline character organization. Through readings and case material, we aim to strike a balance between clinical theory and practice experience. In our sessions we will review key concepts in the readings for each week while applying these to our own clinical experiences.
In preparation for our sessions, while reading the material for the week, you may find it useful to attend to your emotional reactions in addition to your critical thinking. In what ways do you like/not like, agree/disagree with the writer? Why? What relevance, if any, does the material have for your clinical work? How does it help inform your understanding of a particular case or cases?
