"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Q. Is it really possible to heal NPD?

death of a parent ( 21:18:05 WedFeb 23 2005 )

I read somewhere, though I cannot remember where, that the death of a parent opens up a healing opportunity for people with NPD. Is this true?

I think this should be my question. I haven't received any official notice but I'll jump in and take my chances of reprimand. :beerchug:

Neither of my parents have died so I cannot speak directly to how this will effect me. I will say that the death of a parent is a major crisis for most people and there seems to be a belief that it takes some form of a crisis to motivate an NPDer to seek healing. IMO there are no guarantees what the death of a parent might lead someone to do. I could see it leading a person further into depression, and away from healing, or possibly be the thing that leads them to make changes. Like pretty much everything else there is no black and white answer to such a vague question.
