Abstract
Narcissism is a syndrome that has been diagnosed, treated, and, to some degree, pathologized in mainstream psychology. Process Work (or Process Oriented Psychology), the approach to individual and collective change developed by Arnold Mindell and his colleagues, has mostly resisted using diagnostic terms and methods to work with the Process Work client. This paper describes psychodynamic, Core Energetic, and Process Oriented approaches to work with narcissism. I also present my own personal and professional experiences and views to enhance this description. This project is a composite of theoretical, experiential, and case study material. By presenting this material, my intention is to help Process Workers, interested professionals, and laypeople understand narcissism and suggest ways to help people who struggle with narcissistic tendencies.
