Echoism and the echositic-narcissistic complex (ENC). Donna Christina Savery. Sep 15th 7:30pm-9:30pm.

Echoism and the echositic-narcissistic complex (ENC)
Donna Christina Savery
Donna Christina Savery is an existential therapist and daseinsanalyst of the Zurich seminar having studied with Alice Holzhey Kunz. She works in private practice in the UK and teaches and supervises internationally.
Following her initial seminar in April this year on Echoism, in which she introduced the key ideas in her book, Echoism: The silenced response to narcissism, Donna returns to present a more detailed exploration into Echoism and in particular the echoistic-narcissistic complex (ENC).
Drawing upon over ten years of research, in which she has specialised in working with both Echoistic and Narciasistic clients, she uses a combination of clinical examples, existential and psychoanalytic ideas and the daseinsanalytic method to bring a deep understanding to the ways in which narcissists and echoists relate and are drawn to one another. Her research shows that each can play an active role, however unconsciously, in drawing out the corresponding character traits in others and indeed in the therapist. She underpins her observations with key theoretical ideas from Sartre on Being and The Look.
Donna will discuss how she works with trainees and therapists in supervision, to recognise their own echoistic and narcissistic tendencies and to be aware of how these may present in the work, and how to work with them in a way that is of benefit to clients who are susceptible to these very challenging issues in themselves and in their relationship dynamics with others.
The session will be 2 hours and will include a 30 minute discussion.
It is not necessary to have read the book to attend, but reading chapters 8 and 9 beforehand will certainly enhance the discussion.. Click here to see Donna’s book : ECHOISM
