Narcissus and Echo Reflections on Narcissistic Themes in Couple Relationships
This fascinating exposition of the myth of Narcissus and Echo draws upon both psychodynamic and systemic theories to reveal the full nature of attachment and the inevitable anxiety that accompanies it. The book explores the factors underlying the propensity for couples either to avoid connection or to fuse identities, as a defense against separateness, dependency, and loss. Therapeutic and literary insight combine to make this a rich resource.
