Dr Elinor Greenberg talks about narcissism - Part 4

In the final episode of this mini series with Dr Elinor Greenburg, Dr Supriya McKenna and Karin Walker ask Elinor whether it is possible to 'cure' a narcissist. Elinor explains how previously therapy would take 5-10 years to have an effect on a minority of narcissists, but how she has recently been working on a new therapy, which has much faster effects. She explains which specific type of narcissist is able to respond to this type of therapy, and the strict boundaries and rules she enforces when working with them.  They discuss the concept of neuroplasticity and how treating narcissist involves breaking old autopilots and creating new ones. Elinor explains what drew to her working in this field, and they discuss depression in narcissists, and how the "Nobel Prize narcissists' rarely fall into depressions ('or narcissistic collapses'). More resources for you: You can check out our Amazon number one bestseller, 'Divorcing a narcissist - the Lure, the Loss and the Law' here.

No Fault Divorce

In this episode Dr Supriya McKenna asks Karin Walker how she expects the new UK 'no fault divorce' to impact upon divorces where one of the spouses is a narcissist. Karin also clarifies why it is that in the eyes of the law it does not matter what ground is cited as a ground for divorce, as this will not affect the outcome of the financial or child arrangements. They discuss why it is not necessary to cite all narcissistic behaviours in full detail in an 'unreasonable behaviour' divorce petition as this will not affect any outcomes, because the financial proceedings, the child arrangements process and the divorce petition are all completely separate from each other. More resources for you: You can check out our Amazon number one bestseller, 'Divorcing a narcissist - the Lure, the Loss and the Law' here.
