About this product
- DescriptionCharacter traits may be used as defenses, or, 'coping mechanisms' that may be developed by individuals in an exaggerated fashion in order to conceal psychological conflicts. When these mechanisms break down, previously repressed trauma erupts into consciousness. One such trait is selflessness. Les Barbanell examines the transformation of selflessness into the Caretaker Personality Disorder and how it is t always better to give than receive, that being good can go bad, and that the 'disease to please' can even be fatal.
- Author BiographyLes Barbanell, Ph.D. received his doctoral degree from Columbia University and trained in psychoanalysis at the New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis where he is a faculty member, supervisor and control analyst. He is currently in private practice in Fort Lee, New Jersey and is a member of the New Jersey Psychological Association.
