The Case of W. B., Paranoia, Delusions of Grandeur

This essay involves a discussion and a Jungian depth psychological perspective on a relationship with W B, a man that suffered from Delusions of Grandeur and Persecutory Delusions, as well as severe arthritis. Although I was not there as a therapist or healer, we did discuss dreams and other issues regarding his life and there may, as a result, have been some measure of healing.

In this case, by healing I mean acceptance of one’s place in life, even if it means impending death, which seemed to have been the case of W B. Although there is no gainsaying that W B lived the life he was meant to live it, nonetheless, it represents an extreme example of a life of unconscious individuation.
