ECR #23 – Kate Derry: Childhood Narcissism

Narcissism

Kate Derry is a psychology PhD candidate from The University of Western Australia. She currently operates between the UWA campus and various children play centres to conduct her experimentations (don’t panic they are all humane). Kate has tried several university courses before finding her true passion in psychology.

Throughout the discussion with Kate we discuss about the two types of narcissism to develop in children, how parenting techniques are likely to lead to these states of mind and how a narcissistic psychological state may impact a child’s behaviour into adolescence and adulthood.
