    Utilizing Hypnosis in the Healing of Narcissistic Wounds in Psychotherapy

    Presenter:  Eric Spiegel, Ph.D., Philadelphia Psychologist 

    Overview:  The dimension of narcissism influences a wider range of character presentations and treatment issues than the categorically-derived DSM-V diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Narcissistic wounds stemming from attachment failures are a more frequent occurrence in the development of the self. 

    This workshop, informed by Kohut’s self psychology and current innovations in attachment theory, will help us understand narcissistic wounds and treatment issues across the dimension of narcissism.  It will explore the role that hypnosis can play in a relationally attuned therapeutic relationship, towards facilitating attachment repair in patients with narcissistic wounds (e.g. false-self identify formation, affect dysregulation, boundary difficulties, etc.). 

    Through a mixture of didactic and experiential training, participants will develop increased competency in (1) understanding how the therapeutic relationship in general, and clinical hypnosis from an attachment frame in particular, can be utilized to re-build developmental structure and re-engage reflective functioning in this population of patients and (2) utilizing specific applications of clinical hypnosis towards this aim.

    About the Presenter: Dr. Spiegel is a psychologist in Philadelphia, PA and Bryn Mawr, PA with expertise in attachment and relational treatment; and clinical hypnosis and health psychology.  His clinical niches include anxiety and mood disorders, relational trauma, and applications of hypnosis in treating psychosomatic issues (headache, insomnia, GI/Gut disorders such as IBS, panic attacks, and pain management).  Dr. Spiegel works with adolescents and adults, and offers treatment in the modalities of individual therapy, couples counseling, group therapy, and hypnotherapy.
