Margaret Shanahan's cool glide across Freudian, Jungian and Self Psychological perspectives as they relate to narcissism was a compelling read.   In its complex, tragic, and ghastly  nature, this conversation of  the narcissistic personality disorder is a perfect Halloween adventure.  I am appropriately horrified!  Well done.
