Like anything else mental health related, educating yourself and seeking professional help is often the first and most meaningful step when it comes to the rehabilitation process. Clinical research has indicated that psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is currently the only effective method for treating Narcissistic Personality Disorder. In fact, psychotherapy can help patients through education, by building strategies for relating better with others and regulating emotions and impulses. Due to the entrenchment of Personality Disorders, psychotherapy may often need to be intensive and span several years to be most effective.
At the foundation of psychotherapy treatment for Narcissistic Personality Disorder is the goal of developing healthy individuality and recognition of others in patients with the disorder. Modalities in both individual and group psychotherapy have been shown to be most effective in managing symptoms associated with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, as well as addressing the root psychopathology. Unlike many other mental health illnesses, such as depressions, anxiety and bipolar disorder, psychotropic medication is usually not a primary course of treatment for these individuals.
