Q & A – can you treat NPD?

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a complex and challenging condition to treat, but it is not untreatable. While there is no cure for NPD, individuals with this disorder can benefit from therapy that focuses on managing their symptoms and improving their relationships with others.

Therapy approaches that may be helpful for individuals with NPD include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and psychodynamic therapy. These therapies can help individuals with NPD learn coping skills, develop more positive and realistic self-perceptions, and improve their ability to empathize with others.

It is important to note that treatment for NPD can be a long and challenging process, and many individuals with this disorder may not see themselves as having a problem and may be resistant to treatment. Additionally, treatment for NPD typically requires a long-term commitment from both the individual and their mental health provider.

Overall, while NPD can be difficult to treat, with appropriate therapy and support, individuals with this condition can learn to manage their symptoms and improve their relationships with others.
