CSU’s Got Talent Online Training: The 7 Types of Narcissism You Need to Know

Dr. Ramani Durvasula is on a mission to demystify and dismantle the toxic influence of narcissism on all of our lives. Narcissism is a personality pattern that impacts behavior, and can result in behavior that manifests as high conflict, antagonistic, and dysregulated. These patterns can impact a range of relationships including intimate, family, and workplace relationships. Although the term is often used, there can be a lack of clarity in what it means, and it can have varied presentations. Understanding the different “faces” of narcissistic personality styles can provide a framework for addressing and managing it in a range of settings. The focus of Dr. Durvasula’s clinical, academic and consultative work is the etiology and impact of narcissism and high-conflict, entitled, antagonistic personality styles on human relationships, mental health, and societal expectations.
