We will help your daughter with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a learned behavior disorder in which she is exceptionally self-absorbed, and shows tremendous conceit. As a Narcissist, she believes she is exceptional and unique, and may well be self-centered and condescending toward others, acting as if no one else is on a level to be able to understand her.
Diagnosis for NPD (also called Narcissism) includes many of these symptoms: a grandiose sense of self import, complete lack of compassion, takes advantage of others, has an unwarranted expectation of especially favorable treatment, requires excessive admiration, is absorbed with fantasies of ideal love, or limitless success, beauty or power.
Helping Girls with Narcissistic Personality Disorder is Why We’re Here.
If not treated, her complications may go beyond problems at school 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 daughter’s insistence that others see her as she wishes to be seen, and adapts instead to reality.
In serious cases, she can be controlling and self-absorbed, even intolerant and judgmental of the therapist’s thoughts.
