Diagnosis and Treatment

In this compelling book, the authors present an innovative
therapeutic model for understanding and treating adults from
emotionally abusive or neglectful families? families the authors
call narcissistic. Narcissistic families have a parental system
that is, for whatever reason (job stress, alcoholism, drug abuse,
mental illness, physical disability, lack of parenting skills,
self-centered immaturity), primarily involved in getting its own
needs met. The children in such narcissistic family systems try to
earn love, attention and approval by satisfying their parents'
needs, thus never developing the ability to recognize their own
needs or create strategies for getting them met. By outlining the
theoretical framework of their model and using dozens of
illustrative clinical examples, the authors clearly illuminate
specific practice guidelines for treating these individuals.



Stephanie Donaldson-Pressman is a therapist, consultant, and
trainer. She is known for her work with dysfunctional families,
particularly with survivors of incest. Robert M. Pressman is the
editor-in-chief and president of the Joint Commission for the
Development of the Treatment and Statistical Manual for Behavioral
and Mental Disorders.
