Dublin NPD Attorney With More Than 30 Years of Experience
A narcissistic personality disorder features a person with a pattern of grandiosity, an inflated sense of self-importance, the need for admiration and a lack of empathy for the emotional needs of others. NPD sufferers are frequently men who use various methods for the satisfaction of their own emotional needs, often at the expense of others, including their spouse and their children.
If these behaviors sound familiar to you, or have impaired your relationship or significantly impacted your children — and you are contemplating divorcing a spouse with NPD — our experienced Columbus lawyers can help.
We are the Edward F. Whipps & Associates family law firm, serving clients in Columbus, Dublin and Central Ohio for more than 30 years.
Our founding attorney Edward F. Whipps has spent a great deal of time in the in-depth study of psychology. Mr. Whipps is past president of the Ohio Board of Psychology and works with a network of psychologists to help clients understand the emotional impact of a divorce.
Mr. Whipps understanding of NPD and other personality disorders allows us to structure legal approaches to divorce that meet clients' psychological needs while keeping in mind the psychological problems of others.
Family Law Firm Offering Sound Advice on the Psychology of Divorce
A person with narcissistic personality disorder may be inclined to:
- React to criticism with rage or shame
- Take advantage of other people to achieve goals
- Have excessive feelings of self-importance
- Exaggerate achievements and abilities
- Preoccupation with fantasies of success, beauty, power and intelligence
- Expect to receive preferential treatment
- Crave attention and admiration
- Disregard the feelings of others
Sometimes, due to a personality disorder on the part of a spouse, a marriage cannot be maintained. Sometimes these personality disorders prevent divorces from being amicable. At Edward F. Whipps & Associates, we understand how mental health issues affect relationships between couples. We structure our legal approach to take these issues into account.
