Narcissistic Personality Disorder – Red Flags

Red Flags
› Signs and symptoms of NPD are similar to those of other cluster B personality disorders and can be difficult to distinguish for diagnostic purposes

› The myth that personality disorders are untreatable can be self-reinforcing when repeated among professionals involved in the treatment of NPD

› Clinicians report that clients with a comorbid diagnosis of NPD and borderline personality disorder can be the most challenging clients to treat because they tend to provoke or alienate the therapist in an effort to devalue the therapeutic relationship and treatment

Physical illness and problems resulting from substance use can threaten the image of superiority held by persons with NPD; they may minimize these issues to preserve their sense of superiority
