From time to time, I get requests from listeners asking for more coverage of the various diagnostic categories such as depression, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and so on. So, it’s in that spirit that I invited today’s guest to talk about the Narcissistic Personality. Regular listeners will recall Maria Hess, Ph.D. who I interviewed on teaching with passion back in Episode #20. Maria regularly teaches a class on Abnormal Behavior at Sonoma State University, where I taught for most of my own career. And, it’s worth mentioning that she was a recent winner of that University’s Excellence in Teaching Award. Recommended reading by Dr. Hess includes Why Is It Always About You: Saving Yourself FromThe Narcissists in Your Life by Sandy Hotchkiss, as well as any books by leading authors in the area James Masterson and Steven Johnson. In this episode, Dr. Dave relates his story about “winning” the Liar’s Contest in Lolo, Montana. Thanks to the Ron Helman Jazz Ensemble who provided the jazz track behind the Liar’s Contest story. You’ll find their tune, “Old Folks,” on the Podsafe Music Network. The show closes with a podsafe number, titled, “Be Here Now” by Freedom People.
