THE CONCEPT OF NARCISSISM IN PSYCHOSIS AND IN SEVERE PERSONALITY DISORDERS

The concept of narcissism has a certain connotation in psychiatry and a slightly different one in psychoanalysis. This is similar to the concept’s evolution, over the years, undergoing major changes, defining varied psychodynamic or psychological realities. Therefore, this paper proposes a multi-faceted perspective on the concept of narcissism, from the perspective of multiple psychoanalyst authors belonging to various currents /orientations. The overall objective is to demonstrate that: narcissism involves a particular way of mental functioning, having roots in childhood and in early relational models, but that, in time, a particular type of functioning determines a structure of some kind (of organizing the personality), which can be correspondent to the wide array of enhanced features or to a severe psychiatric diagnosis.
