Sexual Jealousy: Evaluation and Assessment Using the Principles of Psycho-Imagination Therapy

  • Pennee Robin
  • Jack Connella


The imaginai components of jealousy are almost identical to those of love. The images of love can include idealized images of the loved one, remembered moments of bliss, and images of future happiness. Although the love images focus primarily on the benign and blissful, there can also be painful and tormenting images of misunderstandings and fearful images of unthinkable separation. The latter images usually arise because of feared or actual situations which invoke jealousy.
