The Self-Analysis Workbook is for those who are passionately interested in their own liberation. It is made possible because we each possess an inner tendency toward health. Many analysts will admit what they really do is to remove the barriers to their patients ability to heal themselves. For the psychologically-minded, this workbook will be only the first step in the never-ending journey of self-awareness. It begins with ideas about how the self is formed. It introduces the reader to the authors interpretation of Object Relations Therapy, Self Psychology, Intersubjectivity Theory, Family Systems Therapy, and Existentialism. It gives the reader insights into the major personality problems of our time - narcissism, schizoid disorders, and borderline personality disorders. It explains defense mechanisms and it discusses being, freedom, aggression, love, relationships, desires, and the self purged of egoism. Each section after the first chapter presents questions for self-analysis.
