Description / abstract

With schema therapy, the author has found a suitable approach for people with a narcissistic personality disorder. In practical treatment chapters and with many examples, it shows how the corrective relationship experience is put into practice.

People with a narcissistic personality disorder then seek out a psychotherapist when they see their grandiose self-image questioned. In the psychotherapeutic relationship, too, their style of behavior is characterized by arrogance, devaluation of the other person and pretension, which quickly brings less experienced practitioners to the limits of their possibilities.
Schema therapy assumes that every person has certain learned basic schemas that control their behavior. Schema therapy was developed by Jeffrey E. Young as a psychodynamic extension of the cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approach. With schema therapy, it is easier to show empathy here as well and at the same time confront the patient with their inappropriate, often cross-border, aggressive relationship style. How the corrective relationship experience is put into practice is shown in the book in practical treatment chapters and with many examples.

Target group:
- Psychotherapists from all schools
- Behavioral therapists

criticism

»The explanatory approach from a schema-therapeutic point of view clearly illustrates the connection between the schemas and typical behaviors, coping modes and avoidance strategies. She shows the concrete course of therapy using case studies. Ms. Dieckmann succeeds in awakening understanding for the disturbance of this often very difficult group of people and developing an empathic attitude ... All in all, a very readable, practical book that once again illustrates how Schema therapy can be helpful for people with personality disorders. "
Andra Majer, fachbuchkritik.de, July 2nd, 2012

»Eva Dieckmann discusses the evidence-based model of schema therapy in a very clear, technically competent and understandable manner. ... Highly recommended for psychotherapists, psychologists, medical professionals and anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with or deepen the schema therapy of narcissistic personality disorders. "
