Presentation: This presentation explores the treatment of a medical student with a narcissistic personality structure, who participated in psychodynamic psychotherapy with a senior psychiatry resident. The discussion will focus on how defenses of projection, splitting, and grandiosity manifest in otherwise high functioning professionals as a way of managing feelings of emptiness and despair. The discussion also emphasizes the challenging transference-counter transference dynamics in this patient’s treatment.
