Combining clinical diagnostic observations, advances in treatment, and empirical evidence, Disorders of Narcissism provides a comprehensive overview of psychotherapy with narcissistic disorders. The book probes such important subjects as transference and countertransference, the self-psychological perspective, an object-relations approach, and the treatment of narcissistic disorders in group and couples therapy.

Pathological narcissism has been the topic of heated discussion for a hundred years now. Freud, Kohut, Klein, Winnicott, Kernberg - have all contributed their point of view. Roningstam belongs in this august company as a major theoretician and practitioner. This book - an anthology of writings about this intractable and maddening phenomena - is both whole and partial. It is whole is that it provides a magnificent overview and an efficient launching pad to the understanding of narcissism. It is partial in that it presents only the views of the psychodynamic cum object relations school of psychology and largely ignores advances in other fields. But it is a great read and provides hope that treatment may finally be getting there and breaching the narcissistic barrier. Sam Vaknin, author of 'Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited'.
