Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) Foundational Training: Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

China, July 5-7, 2019

Faculty: Frank Yeomans, MD, PhD

Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is a state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment for patients with personality disorders (PD). TFP offers psychotherapists an overarching approach to patients with severe PD symptoms including, but not limited to, patients with borderline personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder. The goals of our training program include: 1) Introduction to TFP as an individual psychotherapy for patients with personality disorder symptoms, and 2) Introduction to TFP principles of use to clinicians in a variety of treatment settings who may not be offering an extended individual psychotherapy, but nevertheless want assistance in the challenges of treating patients with moderate to severe personality disorder symptoms. TFP Year 1, from June 2018 to May 2019, focused on setting a foundation of TFP knowledge and its use for treating borderline personality disorder. This 3-day workshop, as a part of TFP Year 2, will focus on narcissistic personality disorder.

Target Audience: Physicians, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers, and other licensed mental health counselors.
