This one day workshop will feature the presentation of Woody Allen’s film, “Blue Jasmine,” to analyze the nature of the “closet narcissist,” as described by Annie Reich, James Masterson, and Susan Kavaler-Adler. Dr. Kavaler-Adler will offer her analysis of Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine character (played in the movie by Kate Blanchet), opposite of the psychopathic grandiose narcissist husband (played by Alec Baldwin). Dr. Kavaler-Adler will define the trajectory of the Blue Jasmine character as the repetition of psychic arrest in the “closet narcissist.” She will describe this arrested woman as the woman who fails – in Marion Woodman’s terms – to “leave the father’s house.” She will also relate the false self of the closet narcissist, who is compelled to merge with the grandiose narcissist male (often called “chemistry”) – to the woman artist who merges in with a muse-God figure within her creative work.
Dr. Kavaler-Adler has written about this in her earlier books, The Compulsion to Create: Women Writers and Their Demon Lovers (Routledge 1993/ORI Academic Press 2013) and The Creative Mystique: From Red Shoes Frenzy to Love and Creativity (Routledge 1996/ORI Academic Press 2014). The object relations view of the demon lover complex outlined in these books co-habits easily with the Jungian demon lover complex.
The second part of the workshop will include the lively discussion on the closet narcissist dynamics and the demon lover complex, as it is seen through the lens of Jungian psychology and the object relations theory.
