The fundamental outlook of this book is clinical in an attempt to establish a unitary model of the processes at work in different forms of narcissistic pathology, and offer a model that is both an alternative and complementary to Freud's model of what is usually considered to be neurotic problems. The aim is to extract a sequence of mental processes that could be seen as typical of narcissistic disturbances of the sense of identity, with their several forms and clinical variations. It describes how these are structured, together with their intrapsychic and intersubjective functions, based on the hypothesis of a defensive pattern that is set up to counter the effect of a split-off primary trauma and the threat that hangs over the mind and subjectivity.
