Are you ready to master more advanced skills?

Advanced Core is for men who want to build on the foundational skills learned in The Core and take their healing to the next level. You will master advanced skills that will serve you in all areas of your life, not just your relationships—skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Our methods are based on the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy model, which is the most effective therapeutic intervention for affecting behavioral changes and treating narcissistic behaviors.

Groups are limited to 7 men who will meet weekly via a 2-hour video call for 14 weeks. Participants must have completed The Core program or a Personal Intensive prior to registering for this program.



Recognize whether you’re functioning from your “protective self” or “core self.”


Learn non-defensive listening.


Practice responding rather than reacting.


Communicate from a place of empathy.


Use your real-life challenges and successes as learning opportunities.


Learn how to prevent falling back into old ways.


Learn how to get back on track when you hit a roadblock.

* In order to register for this program, you must first have completed The Core or a Personal Intensive and be recommended into the program by one of our counselors.
