Abstract

This study examines caregiver commonalities in the childhood experiences of therapists by comparing them to experiences of non-therapists. One hundred twenty-seven (127) participants completed a 13-item survey, created for this study, about their experiences of their parents or caregivers. The survey specifically asked participant about their experiences of parental or caregiver narcissism. The participants were grouped as either therapists or non-therapists in order to discern if therapists had different experiences of childhood narcissism compared to non-therapists. The results of the surveys showed that therapists and non-therapists do not differ significantly in their perceptions of self-reported, childhood experiences of caregiver narcissism.
