La Terapia Metacognitiva Interpersonale (TMI) è stata formalizzata in particolare per pazienti con disturbi di personalità a prevalente sovra-regolazione emotiva e comportamentale. In questi pazienti gli aspetti di sofferenza sono innescati e sostenuti da schemi interpersonali maladattivi, metacognizione compromessa e conseguenti coping disfunzionali. All’interno della stessa categoria diagnostica di Disturbo Narcisistico di Personalità si ritrovano pazienti con schemi interpersonali e coping che rendono evidenti diversi sottotipi di narcisismo; a partire da ciò proporremo un modello alternativo alla tradizionale distinzione tra narcisismo covert e overt. Mostreremo, quindi, come in TMI la formulazione del caso costituisca la base del trattamento e illustreremo con un caso clinico come la l’intervento TMI sugli schemi tramite l’uso di tecniche esperienziali e la regolazione della relazione terapeutica.
