Child Narcissism: Impact on Development and Implications for Clinical Practice

April 30, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Recent research studies indicate narcissism levels among children and adolescents are increasing. This presentation will describe the characteristics of narcissism and their associated features in children and adolescents. The description will include a review of recent studies on the behavioral and social correlates of adolescents such as aggression and antagonistic peer relationships. The session will conclude with a discussion of future research on adolescent narcissism and a spotlight on social media behavior, including suggestions for providing feedback to youth in ways that might limit the development of narcissism or its behavioral consequences.

During this webinar, participants will learn to:

  • Identify core clinical dimensions of narcissism and their associations to child/adolescent adjustment
  • Describe research that influenced current investigations on youth narcissism
  • Discuss recent studies on correlates of youth narcissism and future directions
  • Distinguish between different dimensions of narcissism and their associations in youth behavior and social context
