Symposium

Complex Trauma, Dissociation and Narcissism – Dimensional versus Categorical Diagnosis in the Assessment for Psychotherapy of Patients with Personality Disorders

Sunday, March 25
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Salon 3

Narcissistic pathology is commonly seen with dissociation in complex trauma and borderline personality disorder.
We will discuss two research cohorts and a case study.
Findings: childhood neglect results in severe personality pathology. Dimensional and categorical assessment have different symptom correlates. Addressing the narcissistic wounds of trauma helps to decrease dissociation.
