The Clinical Use of Psycho-Imagination Therapy in the Treatment of Sexual Jealousy

  • Pennee Robin


It is probably safe to say that everyone falls in love, and, further, that everyone who has fallen in love has been jealous at some time. Imagination and imagery play a significant role in both processes. Falling in love involves the images of comeliness and perfection that are projected onto the love object; jealousy involves the images of having the loved one snatched away from a rival.
