SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an informative show, "Narcissistic Personality Disorder: The Age of the 'Selfie'," on Sunday, March 19 at 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. The broadcast discussed what narcissism is cognitively speaking, what narcissism looks like in leaders and how society has evolved into an entitled mindset. The show was hosted by Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, who provided in-depth medical and clinical expertise and Program Producer and co-host Kristina Kuestner.
One of Sunday's panelists was Lisa Firestone, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, author and the Director of Research and Education for the Glendon Association. She studies suicide and violence as well as couples and family relations. Another panelist was John D. Gartner, Ph.D., an experienced therapist with private practices in Baltimore and New York, where he specializes in the treatment of borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder and depression.
"Narcissistic personality disorder is a disorder that has to be diagnosed by a professional," said Dr. Firestone. "Symptoms include a failure to conform to social norms, respecting unlawful behaviors, very impulsive and not being able to plan ahead. Other characteristics that go into a person with narcissistic personality disorder are being self-centered, having a sense of entitlement, having a lack of empathy for others, controlling and manipulating people and very sensitive and overactive. They are unable to see other's needs, as they see their own."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
