Narcissistic Personality Disorder Treatment:Narcissistic personality disorder treatment approaches depend on the severity of functional impairment caused by the condition. Thus, severity levels for NPD are based on the impact narcissistic personality disorder symptoms have on the individual:
Mild impairment. Self-centered, ego-driven behavior causes occasional, minor problems, but, for the most part, the person functions well in everyday life.
Moderate impairment. Self-centered, ego-driven behavior causes an individual to miss excessive time at work or school and neglect household chores. The individual also exhibits considerable performance issues at work, school, or home and frequently avoids or alienates friends and family. Finally, the person poses a considerable risk to self or others (suicidal ideation, neglect of children, abusing children or spouse, committing crimes).
