26 April 2022, Melanie Gill will discuss narcissism in the context of DMM strategies. We will replay her 2020 DMM Coffee House session on narcissism, and then she will join us live to share her current thinking. (The entire session may be live, we’ll play it by ear.)
Melanie has identified a number of narcissistic sub-patterns including the Mafia pattern, the Putin (Delusional Narcissism), the Vulnerable, the Aggressive Woman, and Histrionic with Narcissism. These are various complex combinations of A-C patterns with modifiers and unresolved traumas and/or losses.
(An example of complex pattern is described in Crittenden, Patricia M.; Newman, Louise (2010). “Comparing models of borderline personality disorder: Mothers’ experience, self-protective strategies, and dispositional representations”. Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry. 15 (3): 433–451. doi:10.1177/1359104510368209. ISSN1359-1045. PMID20603429. S2CID206707532. This article describes the complex attachment pattern common in 32 mothers diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.)
