Publisher's Summary

Whether the narcissist in your life is a boss, coworker, relative, or romantic partner, the exercises and advice in Unmasking Narcissism will help you set healthy boundaries and make sense of this complex and often painful issue. In this groundbreaking guide from clinical psychologist Mark Ettensohn, PsyD., you will gain insight into narcissistic behaviors, symptoms, and relationship dynamics. Dr. Ettensohn provides exercises designed to help you clarify your own values and goals for the relationship, whether that means immediate separation or long-term relationship management. Anyone whose life has been touched by narcissism will find this book helpful - whether you are coming to terms with a loved one's diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality disorder (NPD), or working to move forward after leaving a narcissistic relationship.  

Unmasking Narcissism provides strategies and coping styles that will guide you toward a deeper understanding of both the narcissist and yourself, with: 

  • Easy-to-listen-to sections aligned with the DSM-5 criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
  • Explanations of both grandiose (overt) and vulnerable (covert) narcissism.
  • Healing tools and techniques, including how to defuse arguments instead of fuel them, mindfulness meditation, and exploring vulnerability.
  • Real-world stories of people coping with narcissists.

Throughout, Unmasking Narcissism offers a fully realized, yet compassionate portrait of narcissism that will help you on your path to healing without compromising your own mental health and wellness.

Very Confirming

In my research I've encountered many opinions, ideologies, philosophies and stigmatism; but this book has been inspiring and a great asset to my studies. It connected lots of dots and also creates a sense of hope for those of us who still walk in the spirit of love and peace. Thank you!

Great use of real world examples

I really like the inclusion of real world examples, and multiple different scenarios that one could experience a narcissist or behave like a narcissist. I also like the notion that narcissism exists on a spectrum, and that healthy level of confidence can be needed in certain circumstances. This was a very good book to listen to, and there’s opportunities to go deeper into the psychological workings of a narcissist, but the key points were well elaborated on. Great recommendation to those that encounter narcissist and need some practical solutions to navigate such complex characteristics.
