Boys With Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Here’s How Narcissistic Personality Disorder Looks to Us at Brush Creek
A diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (also called Narcissism, or NPD) includes many of these symptoms: an unwarranted expectation of especially favorable treatment or admiration, being engaged in fantasies of immeasurable success, beauty, power or ideal love, a grandiose sense of self import, total lack of compassion, taking advantage of others.
We can help your Narcissistic boy, with this learned behavior disorder in which he is excessively self-absorbed, and exhibits conceit. As a Narcissist, he’ll believe himself to be exceptional and unique, and may well be condescending toward others, as if no one else is quite on his high level.
Brush Creek – Offering a Unique Approach for your Son With Narcissistic Personality Disorder.=
Without care, complications may go beyond problems at school and with relationships, to include depression, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts.
Schema therapy (a combination of elements from cognitive, behavioral and gestalt therapy along with object relations’ treatment) is one of the more effective treatments. A main purpose of this would be to lessen reduce your son’s insistence that others see him as he wishes to be seen, and instead adapt to reality.
In serious cases, he can be controlling and self-absorbed, even intolerant and judgmental of the therapist’s opinions.
Brush Creek – Raising Your Son’s Vision to See Greater Possibilities in Life
Brush Creek is a 915-acre working ranch in beautiful Northeastern Oklahoma. Our facility is a 12-15 month residential program accredited with Teen Challenge USA. The Cross Christian Academy is our private, accredited, year round school that the boys attend while at Brush Creek. Our program offers a very structured environment to help foster growth in each of our student’s lives. We use a level system to help teach the students appreciation, gratitude, responsibility, submission to authority, self-control, leadership, time-management, and a strong work ethic. The first levels are very controlled but as the students improve and progress, they are awarded higher levels. The higher levels allow for more privileges, freedom, and responsibilities.
During a student’s stay at Brush Creek, each student will have the opportunity to learn various vocational skills such as welding, basic carpentry, plumbing, lawn care, fence repair & building, livestock care, and other ranch duties. The students are also involved with various community service projects. This aspect of the program is used to assist the students in building a strong work ethic to enable them to be successful in their communities, families, and future careers.
Brush Creek may be just what you need if you want your good son back, with clear thinking and positive pursuits. Call us at (918) 435-8206 so we can help your son be better prepared to meet life’s challenges and become a hard working, productive young man.
