Aggressivity, Narcissism, and Self-Destructiveness in the Psychotherapeutic Rela

Otto F. Kernberg

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the psychopathology of hatred and envy. Hatred is the more primitive, more direct derivative of rage in response to the experience of suffering, pain, or aggression; envy emerges as a special form of hatred under conditions of a relationship in which highly desirable and teasingly withheld aspects of the object complicate the experience of rageful frustration. Clarification of the subtle differences between these affects and their impact in the transference is a crucial aspect of psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic work with severe personality disorders.
