- New Book – The Schizophrenia Complex
Now Available – The Schizophrenia Complex (Amazon)
Chiron Publications is pleased to announce the release of The Schizophrenia Complex.
Jungian analyst Eve Maram’s The Schizophrenia Complex 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, Dr. Maram 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 we label as suffering it, 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. Also, here is a story about the quintessential power of Eros to constellate hope, even when we are faced with the chaos of the unconscious.
“With the clarity of a scholar and the passion of a mother and a poet, Eve Maram describes her encounter with schizophrenia within and without. This is a unique documentation of the soul’s journey into and through chaos. Of value to professional clinician and layperson alike, it is a book for our times.”
-Murray Stein, Ph.D., Author of Jung’s Map of the Soul
“The Schizophrenic Complex is an innovative, profound and deeply personal and professional description of schizophrenia. The relationship described by the gifted author, Eve Maram, with familial and clinical schizophrenia pulls us into the depth of feelings, disturbance and understanding of the impact of this illness and its impact on both the personal and the collective community. Ultimately, this book is for all of us who care about others and ourselves.”
-Jacqueline Zeller Levine, Ph.D., Psychotherapist/Jungian Analyst
“Jungian analyst Dr. Eve Maram provides an insightful perspective for relating with unconscious material, in particular when thoughts and feelings are engulfed by the baffling phenomenon that came to be known as schizophrenia. Dr. Maram’s new book is a unique contribution to the field: a refreshingly personal approach that evolved from her own experience, enhanced by research of the relevant literature.”
-Robert Hinshaw, Ph.D., Training Analyst and Faculty Member of the C.G. Jung Institute of Zurich

Announcing a Spring 2018 PUBLIC PROGRAM:
Eve Maram, PsyD
Sunday, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM, April 8th, 2018
Dr. Maram offers a new way of conceptualizing and defining psychopathy that is a convergence of the author’s divergent professional experiences as a forensic psychologist, a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist, and her own life experiences over decades as a Jungian student and analysand. We will explore this charged topic, psychopathy, with a new perspective that holds the potential for growth and healing. At the heart of the story is the power of eros, the devastating ramifications of its absence, and the tremendous healing energy of its presence.
- Understand a gradated definition of psychopathy.
- Know at least 3 symptoms of psychopathy from depth psychology.
- Explain how eros holds the potential for healing psychopathy.
