There are many different types of narcissist but you will have come across them in life – you may work for someone with narcissistic traits, you may be married to a narcissist. This course has been created to help you recognise narcissism, avoid emotional manipulation, deal with narcissism, and recover from narcissistic or damaging relationships.

Following an introduction to what emotional and domestic abuse are, the course focuses on what a narcissist is, how to identify them, behavioural warning signs and how they may make you feel. You’ll learn about eight types of narcissist and their modus operandi and explore the essential concepts of narcissistic supply and love bombing.

You’ll learn about the manipulation techniques narcissists use on a daily basis – gaslighting and projection, coercive control, hoovering, triangulation, and flying monkeys – as well as the phrases the may use.

We’ll consider how emotional and narcissistic abuse impacts an individual’s mental health, self-esteem, sense of self, cognitive functioning and emotional regulation. We’ll also explore narcissism in the workplace.

The course will increase your awareness of narcissism, and explain how to protect yourself from narcissists and safely end a relationship with them, along with looking at options for therapy and things you can do to help yourself, if therapy isn’t an option.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Be able to recognise narcissistic traits
  • Understand the techniques narcissists use to manipulate others
  • Explore the impact that emotional and narcissistic abuse has
  • Learn techniques to deal with narcissists
  • Discover how to recover from a narcissistic relationship

Who is this course for?

If you intend to study the Dealing with Narcissism Diploma Course for personal reasons, you’ll learn how to identify the manipulation techniques employed by narcissists and how to protect yourself or others from them.

If you are studying from a general interest or academic perspective, the course will help you get into the narcissistic mind and understand the effects narcissism has on victims of abuse.

Following the course, you could go on to learn about specific types of narcissism or undergo formal training to help victims of domestic abuse.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
