About the Course:
This book is an excellent treatise furthering our understanding of the relational impact of narcissism on the subjective experience and reality of its recipient, i.e. relational trauma. As we all strive to understand the meaning of traumatic intrusions on our patients, the dynamic of perpetrators’ narcissistic subjugation and coercion of their subjective reality is a key concept. It is also central to our understanding of, and therapeutically relating with, dissociative aspects of our patients’ selves that are introjectively patterned to sustain that coerced reality in the service of attachment and affect regulation. In other words, the concepts explicated in this book will help us learn better ways to relate with abusive internal alters which is typically the lion’s share of our work to establish a stable working alliance with our patients.
This course is based on the book, Traumatic Narcissism: Relational Systems of Subjugation created by Daniel Shaw, LCSW in 2014.
