All human beings endeavor to succeed in life. From career success to relationship success, most of us stumble and fumble and fail along the path of enlightenment. Sometimes it is far more difficult to understand and treat emotional and psychological suffering than it is physical illness or injury because so often the origin of the pain is hidden.

Narcissitic Personality Disorder has been, until now, one of the most perplexing and frustrating personality disorders among the entire psychological disorder spectrum. Always considered untreatable by the medical and psychological community, relationship experts Kim and Steve Cooper are proving, through dedicated work and practical application, that NPD can be treated.

There are indicators that allow you to identify when someone has Narcissitic Personality Disorder. People who have this disorder are self focused, tremendously self centered and they love that feeling; they want others to give them attention and acknowledgement; while they also cannot empathize with others.

A Narcissist thinks they are better than others and have tendencies towards being self important, hypercritical and bullying. On the other hand they are super sensitive to rejection whether real or imagined. They react with an excessively bad temper, aggression and may even issue threats. They might throw tantrums and yell and scream a lot. People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder want everyone to be on their page, do what they say and that their way is the only way. Yet, although Narcissists appear to be overly controlling, charming or manipulative these are common traits of NPD that really are compensating for deep insecurity and fear of rejection.

Friends and family of Narcissists find themselves "walking on eggshells" around the Narcissist. It is one of the harder problems to treat because they will never want to believe that they have a problem, they have no empathy and they are extremely sensitive; thus they will be adverse to changes.

However there is hope. People with NPD and the family that loves them need not suffer forever.
There are behavioral skills and techniques you can put into practice right away that, used patiently and consistently, really can turn even the worst situation around.

Kim and Steve Cooper have a workbook, e-books and a blog filled with useful tips and advice that have been helping couples learn how to deal with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
