Origins & Causes of Narcissistic Personality Disorder

When people in society talk about narcissism, there is usually a definitive statement of, “Well it’s caused by childhood trauma…” with an undertone of…”So any aggressive behavior is justified.” However, according to research that’s not always or even usually the case – at least, not in the way people often definitively describe it. There has actually been mixed empirical “results” on the causes of narcissism from studies that have investigated it, although research has yielded surprising associations between parental overvaluation and the traits of narcissism, with less evidence for a direct effect of childhood maltreatment. It’s important to note that there is also no clinical verdict on the cause of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. So even if we learn more about the origins of the traits of narcissism, more research needs to be conducted on NPD as a full-fledged disorder too.

***Childhood trauma regardless of whether it is present or not is also not a justification for abuse. #originsofnarcissism #narcissisticabuse #emotionalabuse #mythsaboutnarcissism #shahidaarabi

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
