Working with Narcissistic Behaviour

Living or working with a narcissist and having tolerated their covert behaviour for many years, can leave a person reeling, full of self-blame and total confusion. Often, it is not until it is pointed out blatantly obviously, that they may have been involved with a narcissist. It is only then, that healing can begin and a new wave of freedom and self-growth can really flourish. 

Clients often don't even realise that they may have been in a relationship with a narcissist, until it is pointed out to them. Once the knowledge sinks in, they can start to unravel what part they may have played, usually by being empathic and normal.

This course is about the fallout from the toxic behaviour of a narcissist, rather than actually working with those who have been diagnosed with NPD.

Self – Care Management for Online Trauma Training & Learning

We only have so much time in the day. Some of the content in all of our CPD online trauma training can be heavy going, especially the case history content. It can be easy to become overwhelmed, which is why we have prepared this brief document. 

In order to manage your time, you can plan and organise the learning activities that you intend to complete. For some learners, they may already have the information contained within the course, but need to refresh that knowledge, others they may like to take their time, absorbing new information and processing that learning.

Finding your own way to manage your learning time can be extremely beneficial. There are no deadlines for our courses, once you have purchased the chosen course, you have all the time you need to complete it. The content is reading, understanding and completing a series of multiple choice questions after each module. Once accomplished, if you have achieved a 75% pass, you can automatically download your Certificate of Achievement accredited by the CPD Standards Office.

Seven bullet points that may help…

1.    Keep a schedule or to-do-list – set your own deadlines.

2.    Prioritise and focus on your highest objective within your list.

3.    Set blocks or allocate time for specific modules.

4.    Take as many breaks as you feel you need.

5.    Prepare to make notes, research further into links provided.

6.    Learn how to recognise distractions, multi-tasking, background noise and self-derailing.

7.   Reward yourself often and purchase a fitting frame for your new certificate.

We hope that these few steps will be of some assistance to you when completing any of the CPD Trauma Training courses. Arranging time for yourself to complete your chosen course can be crucial to your absorption of any new information. Above all, stay focused and although these are heavy in places, we hope that you enjoy the journey.

Once you have passed the course and downloaded your online Certificate of Achievement, if you send us an appropriate postal address, we will send you the additional CPD Accreditation Certificate alongside your Certificate of Achievement.

We are always interested to see photographs of your certificate/s, whether that is on your private practice wall, in a folder or at your place of work. If you would like to send us your photograph, please send to us via the website contact access.
