Healing the Narcissistic Wound
Presenter: Sarah Shelton, MS, LPC-S
This program approved for 2 Clock Hours by NBCC (fee)**
Narcissism is currently a popular topic, inspiring articles that focus on the more antagonistic features of this character structure. This has often led to a caricatured view of the narcissist. Using the myth of Narcissus and Echo, as well as that of Demeter and Persephone, we will explore the traumatic origins of narcissism and the deep wounds at its heart. It has been said that just as hysteria was the predominant neurosis in the age of Jung and Freud, narcissism is the neurosis of our age. If this is so, it is in our best interest and perhaps is our moral duty to understand how this character structure operates in order to better understand it in ourselves and in the collective.
Sarah Shelton is a Licensed Counselor in private practice in New Orleans. She has studied with the New Orleans Jungian Seminar since 2013.
