Narcissism Survival Requires Advanced Self Management
In or Out of the Relationship
He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
~ Benjamin Franklin
Wendy Behary, LCSW has co-authored several chapters and articles on Schema Therapy and Cognitive Therapy for narcissism. She is the author of Disarming the Narcissist…Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed (New Harbinger Publications—2008 & 2013) – now translated into 10 languages.
Wendy specializes in treating narcissists and the people who live with and deal with them. As an author and an expert on the subject of narcissism, she is a contributing chapter author of several chapters on Schema Therapy for Narcissism (Wiley and APA Press, 2011, 2012, 2013).
She lectures both nationally and internationally to professional and general audiences on the subject of Schema Therapy, and the subject of narcissism, relationships, and dealing with difficult people. Her consultation work with organizations includes speaking engagements focused on interpersonal conflict resolution.
- In this CBJ review of narcissism, Wendy makes clear the paradox – how distant and alone they are, and how their low self-esteem excuses every move because they are, beneath all the posturing and posing, so fragile. They rationalize that empty, painful reality – thinking they do deserve special treatment. That demanding painful fragility can become seductive and draw others in to fix them – which they use and don’t give back.
- You know people like this – in and outside of the office. We all do. These maladaptive patterns of disrespectful narcissism provide global news every day.

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode
170 Lily Violet, [a pen name], is the 30-year-old author of the book, Cinnia’s Story, which is based on her own life story of overcoming a war zone childhood. She is a professional chef with over 15 years of experience, but most exciting for her, she is a mother to a beautiful baby boy. Lily was born in a small Eastern European country but immigrated to Australia in her early 20s and that abiding past war trauma forces her to keep anonymity intact.
From a very young age, she found herself trapped in a war zone, living day to day in fear for her own life and the lives of her family. Unfortunately, the war not only took away her childhood but the life of her grandfather, as well.
Lily has experienced countless life struggles, including surviving two wars, being bullied through high school and in the workplace, suffering numerous health issues, to being a victim of domestic abuse. But these tragedies have only made her stronger. Lily currently resides in Sydney with her husband and enjoys spending all of her time with their new baby boy. Becoming a mother is one of the greatest gifts in her life and her greatest accomplishment. She comes to our CBJ group with remarkable experiences from a catastrophic life, to report on trauma and recovery.

- Interesting, Important and helpfulApril 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden
I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!
- Core Brain Journal--NeuropsychologyMay 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States
Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.
- Exceptional interviews !!May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States
Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States

- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
