Lecture Description

Jungian analyst and teacher Dariane Pictet explores what it means to be raised by a narcissistic parent or caregiver. She uses the popular fairytale Snow White by the Brothers Grimm as the lens to do this. 

How does a fairytale help understand narcissism? Fairytales carry wisdom that we can partake from. They describe unconscious psychic processes in the form of symbolic figures and bring to light how we can think and act differently and what we can do to ask the right questions. 

In Healing from a Narcissistic Parent, you will learn from the classic fairytale Snow White the psychological development of a person raised by a narcissistic mother. What is a person up against if he/she wants to heal from this type of infliction?

Dariane Pictet moves between the psychological and clinical aspects of the fairytale realm to the symbolic fairytale aspect throughout the lecture. She taps into the collective wisdom and shows what we can learn from the fairytale of Snow White in relation to narcissism. 

In the first part of the lecture, Dariane explores what shows up in the development of women that have grown up with a narcissistic mother. In the second part, she talks about the development of men that have been unmirrored by their mother. Dariane shows how the experience of a narcissistic parent impacts a person’s attachment style. And, concludes by discussing how healing from a narcissistic mother happens.
