Can a Narcissist Change? YES

There are several approaches to dealing with narcissism, but therapy typically involves these essential steps:

  • identifying existing defense mechanisms
  • exploring reasons behind these coping methods
  • learning and practicing new patterns of behavior
  • exploring how behaviors affect others
  • examining connections between their internal voice and their treatment of others

The key to lasting progress often lies in:

  • helping someone see how positive change can benefit them
  • helping them explore causes of narcissistic defenses without criticism or judgment
  • offering validation
  • encouraging self-forgiveness and self-compassion to manage shame and vulnerability
