    Membership Meeting


    with Catherine Barrett, PsyD


    "Narcissist: The Skilled Abuser

    (Part II: Behind the Mask)"



    Dr. Barrett's aim is to help clinicians see outside of the textbook definition of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder and present a more practical, experiential, and accurate portrayal of this pathology within families to help clinicians identify how NPD presents within the family system. Focusing on the effects of the disorder on children who grow up with a narcissistic parent, the presentation will provide information on how to help survivors manage their expectations should they remain in contact with loved ones who have the disorder. The root and criteria of Narcissistic Personality Disorder will be revisited, providing a basis for individuals who may not have attended Part I of Dr. Barrett's presentation last year. Dr. Barrett's research and experience will also help clinicians provide skills to assist clients in how to avoid being baited into the narcissist's chaos as well as help the client identify the inner child's need to satiate the narcissistic parent.


    Learning Objectives

    In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify 5 masks/persona types that narcissists use to help clinicians identify narcissistic personality disorder in their clients or victims of NPD.
    2. List 4 ways a narcissistic parent can directly influence a child negatively to assist clinicians in identifying what could be underlying issues in their adult and underage clients.
    3. List at least 4 things to be aware of in victims of NPD to inform the therapeutic approach.
    4. Identify at least 2 Do's and Don'ts to help clients who cannot distance themselves from a narcissist.


      Catherine Barrett, PsyD is a licensed Clinical Forensic Psychologist who has also been practicing as a psychotherapist for 10 years. Dr. Barrett's family practice is with Teen Therapy Center in Woodland Hills. Her practice includes high-risk teenagers, LGBT youth, and family discord. Dr. Barrett also performs psychological testing for adolescents and facilitates a group for LGBT teens. She has experience working in addiction recovery and with drug and alcohol related offenders. Her pre-and post-doctoral work was in the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of mentally disordered offenders, individuals found not guilty by reason of insanity, sex offenders, and sexually violent predators. It was here where Dr. Barrett first gained her experience working with severe personality disorders; specifically, Narcissistic and Antisocial personality.

      Membership Meeting 


      with Kim Hermanson, PhD 


      "The Power of Metaphor Assists Clients in Unlocking New Perspectives "  



      Metaphor has been fundamentally misunderstood as merely a linguistic device, yet it is much, much more than that. Research demonstrates that at a deep level, metaphor alters how we perceive the world and aligns us with deep soul wisdom. Many of us make decisions and navigate through the world in a pre-verbal, metaphoric way. Whether it's a career path, a place to live or a decision about who to marry, we choose the one that "feels right"-the career that feels inspiring and expansive, the house that feels lighter, the person who brightens our spirits. These decisions are made through our body's ability to metaphorically connect with universal creative energies that lie beyond our 'thinking' mind. The field of metaphor therapy has shown that working with metaphor provides clients with a direct path to creative breakthroughs and remarkable shifts of perception. Metaphor opens a potent way of knowing that most haven't had access to in our culture.


      Learning Objectives

      In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

      1. Analyze how metaphor is an effective way to assist clients in their everyday life.
      2. List 2 ways that a metaphor's power effects change.
      3. Explain how metaphoric images can provide openings to deep creative energies for clients who feel stuck.
      4. Identify how an experience of metaphoric knowing shifts client perspectives.
      Kim Hermanson, PhD is an author, coach and educator who currently serves as adjunct faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her books include Getting Messy: A Guide to Taking Risks and Opening the Imagination and Sky's the Limit, which received an Independent Publisher Book Award. She has co-authored with Anthony S. Bryk, president of the Carnegie Foundation and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, New York Times bestselling author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience and many other books. Mihaly said this of Kim's work: "Not since Carlos Castenada's books 40 years ago have I had such a strong reaction. This is very powerful stuff." Kim has previously taught at Holy Names University, University of California Berkeley, the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and Esalen Institute. Her PhD is from the University of Chicago, where her doctoral research earned her an Outstanding Research Award from the American Educational Research Association. Kim worked as a corporate computer scientist in the field of artificial intelligence before a series of mystical experiences launched her calling to expand our human ways of learning and knowing. She is known for her skill in quickly shifting people out of psychological difficulties into a place of profound beauty, healing and creative flow.
