Dr. Anthony Vertino

Not advisable: Tapping or tft (thought field therapy) has more direct connections to anxiety, pain, weight loss and ptsd. Narcissistic behavior or narcissistic personality disorder are best treated with psychoanalysis, psychodynamic approaches or interpersonal therapies that get at the root problems with superiority and diminished empathy.
