Two of the most difficult issues to work with are that of two personality extremes that are on the same continuum, those that have been referred to as borderlines and narcissists and those who are in relationship with them. Obviously I do not treat these people for those conditions but sometimes they are referred to me by their mental health care professionals. I have heard from a number of therapists, that they choose to not work with individuals who acknowledge themselves as having these disorders. They feel that the odds of recovery and healing from these conditions are too low. My point of interest isn’t in helping those who are unfortunately plagued with these issues but with the people that are in relationship with them.
