This video has very good information and lots of it. Unfortunately the good Doctor is not that great a presenter. Might I suggest to break up viewing this video into 10 to 15 minute segments.

Informative video, but the framing drives me nuts. She should redo it, as no one is interested in looking at her ceiling tiles while she talks.

“Attachment trauma and the effects of neglect and abuse on the brain” by Dr. Allan Schore

Dr. Allan Schore discusses “Attachment trauma and the effects of neglect and abuse on the brain“.

The development of severe Psychopathologies occurs during right Brain development, during very early childhood. Attachment Trauma and Abandonment Trauma are all stored in the right hemisphere of the Brain, even before the left hemisphere starts to develop.

That is why Brain Scans of Narcissists, Borderlines and Psychopaths show differences from the general population. Because of Attachment Trauma and Abandonment Trauma, the brains of those with Severe Psychopathologies are unable to to wire themselves normally. It is not nature. It is nurture and the severe lack of nurture which plays a major role in creating those with severe Personality Disorders.

Narcissistic & Borderline couples – The Dance of Dysfunction

Two Narcissists often form relationships, as long as they are of two different type of Narcissists. For example a Somatic Narcissist will not compete for the Narcissist Supply needed by a Cerebral Narcissist and so they can both form a couple..

Another common relationship is between someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder and someone with Borderline Personality Disorder. The dance of dysfunction.

A female with BPD will try to control the Narcissist. The term “Golden Vagina” comes into play. The Narcissist needs to also be superior and come out on top. The Narcissist is used to controlling others. Being controlled by the person with BPD will unhinge the Narcissist.

A person with BPD can also quickly flip between Loving the Narcissist and Hating the Narcissist, thus triggering the Narcissist’s fear of losing their source of Narcissistic Supply and extreme fear of abandonment. Hence the Dance of Dysfunction.
