The presenter takes a critical look at traditional interpretations of narcissism, including Sigmund Freud’s seminal paper “On Narcissism: An Introduction” (1914) as well as Heinz Kohut’s twentieth century contributions. Contemporary models on narcissism illuminate two theoretical and clinical problems of the early conceptualization. The first, highlights the negative implications of the analyst’s own subjective and pejorative bias; the second, proves to be an outdated and inaccurate description of infants and of human nature. The presenter offers clinical material to illustrate an alternative view of narcissistic phenomenon.
Learning Objectives: After attending the course, participants will be able to
– Describe traditional and contemporary theory on narcissism.
