    Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder characterized by a long-term pattern of exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of empathy toward other people. NPD affects not only the individual but those around them. Let's learn more about NPD, separate the science from the myths and memes, and have a much needed conversation about the impact of narcissism in our society.


    Dr. Andrew Klafter will talk about NPD, followed by a Q&A/group discussion:

    1. What exactly is Narcissism?
    2. Normal Narcissism vs. Abnormal Narcissism
    3. Narcissistic Personalities, and Narcissistic Personality Disorders
    4. Narcissistic Leaders and Narcissistic Organizations
    5. Narcissism in Our Contemporary Culture

    Dr. Andrew Klafter specializes in intensive psychotherapy and psychoanalytic treatments for complex mental disorders, including Narcissistic and Borderline states. Dr. Andrew Klafter grew up in upstate NY. He attended college at the State University of NY at Binghamton, and received his medical degree from the SUNY Buffalo College of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Klafter has also spent time overseas studying philosophy, religious law, and medical ethics. He completed his residency training in adult psychiatry in Philadelphia, PA, where he also served as Chief Resident. In 2000, Dr. Klafter was recruited to the University of Cincinnati to teach psychodynamic psychiatry. During his eight years as a full time faculty member, he served as the Assistant Training Director in the Department of Psychiatry's residency training program. He also served as Medical Director for the department's outpatient, multi-disciplinary practice. Dr. Klafter completed his full training as a psychoanalyst at the Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute (CPI) in 2011, and in 2012 joined the CPI faculty. He is a six-time winner of the University of Cincinnati's prestigious Golden Apple Award for his lectures and supervision in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
