Sponsored by: 
SPSI

Open to SPSI and NPSI members only.

This case presentation summarizes a successful 6-year psychoanalytic treatment of a strange young man. With a history of childhood trauma, he demonstrates narcissistic and psychotic features. However, he does not fit into any single diagnostic category. With treatment, he is overcoming his childhood adversity – and with much improved functioning, he is finding a place in the world for a self strangely shaped by his childhood experience.
