Beschreibung:
Character structures underlie everyone's personality. This work guides the reader into an awareness of the archetypal depths that underlie character structures, presenting a developmental model in which analytic theories are synthesised. It examines nine character structures, animating them with fairy tales, mythic images and case material.
Part I: Introduction, the Matrix From Which Character Emerges. Part II: Schizoid Character Structure, "Encapsulated in Ice." Counter-dependent Narcissistic Character Structure, "Independence in a Glass Coffin." Obsessive-Compulsive Character Structure; for the Perfectly Tidy, the Wolf Stands Hungry at the Door. Borderline Character Structure, "Agony and Ecstasy." The Dependent Narcissistic Character Structure, "Dependence in the Service of Connection." Hysteria, "The Golden Promise." Psychopathic Character Structure, "Culling the Herd: Dominance, Control, Predation." Alpha Narcissistic Character Structure, "On Top Yet Always Under Siege." Passive-aggressive Character Structure: "The Tar-Baby Beckons." Part III: Conclusion.
Character structures underlie everyonea (TM)s personality. When rigidly defended, they limit us; yet as they become more flexible, they can reveal sources of animation, renewal and authenticity.
