Show Notes

'Narcissists have cynical and unsympathetic views of others and seem insensitive to others' concerns and situational constraints', (Mischel, Shoda, Smith).

This video is about both narcissism and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) coupled with a substance abuse problem. This is an explosive combination. It is important to know that narcissism is a personality trait, not a diagnosis. However, NPD is a diagnosis recognised as a mental health illness.

I discuss both here and the threshold will be quite clear from when a person is a narcissist and when they have NPD with substance abuse.


The information discussed in this video is to education, contemplation, and discussion purposes only. It is in no way intended to be taken in substitution for seeking advice from a medical professional. Please consult your GP or other medical clinician for healthcare guidance regarding any personal concerns or diagnosis. The information discussed in this video on narcissism is a general discussion and in no way refers to a particular person or incident and is not to be used to attempt to diagnose or indicate that someone is a narcissist. The information featured in this video or any video in the ‘Therapeutic Modalities series’ is not to be used to support a claim that this discussion proves that someone is a narcissist, and therefore it would be a breach of proper use of the video to do so.
