Narcissism and Its Transformation in Psychotherapy
The emerging literature about “narcissistic personality disorders” presents interesting challenges to analytical psychology because the individuals seem to live out raw archetypal energies in order to feel alive and to avoid collapsing into the void of their own interiority. Jungian analyst Donald Kalsched leads a workshop which explores these themes and examines their relevance for contemporary collective life.
