Dr. Maram’s book The Schizophrenia Complex (Chiron, 2022) focuses on the thoughts and feelings constellated by encounters with what we call schizophrenia, for those who experience symptoms, and for those others impacted by them. To do so, she had to face her own fear, denial, resistance, and ultimate not knowing. The events inspiring her were beyond her control and rearranged her life without her permission. The unique complex she identifies results from our relationship with the unconscious, and our corresponding personal and collective attitudes toward schizophrenia—how its meaning manifests and the intense emotional responses it arouses.

Dr. Maram also addresses how our reactions to schizophrenia affect those to whom we apply that label, potentially arousing their own complexes about their state. And she addresses how encounters with schizophrenia inevitably raise the question of how we relate to our own schizophrenic propensities—or at least our dreaded potential thereof—which in itself can become a complex. Bridging from personal story to the collective and archetypal, here is a ground-breaking account of the feelings and emotions generated by what we call schizophrenia. Here is a story about the quintessential power of Eros to constellate hope, even when we are faced with the chaos of the unconscious.

Purchase Eve Maram’s book The Schizophrenia Complex, on Amazon.

Learning objectives:
  • Explain how the thoughts and feelings we have in response to encountering what we call schizophrenia can become a complex.
  • Explain why a stable ego is important when encountering the chaos of the unconscious.
  • Explain how Eros holds the potential for depotentiating a schizophrenia complex.

The C.G. Jung Club of Orange County provides quality educational programs designed to promote the study and discussion of Jungian psychology, also known as Analytical Psychology.  The programs elaborate and amplify the ideas of C.G. Jung by exploring diverse perspectives of Jungian psychology, as well as a wide range of subjects studied by Jung and his followers, such as mythology and comparative religion.  We seek to understand the human psyche through the psychological theories and therapeutic methods pioneered by C.G. Jung and the current use of Jungian concepts by contemporary Jungian analysts.
