Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the book offers a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory in their particular theoretical model. - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex
The Jungian approach to analysis and psychotherapy has been undergoing an extensive reconsideration during the past decade. Analytical Psychology calls special attention to the areas that have been most impacted : the core concepts and practices of the Jungian tradition, along with relevant intellectual and historical background.
Internationally renowned authors drawing on the forefront of advance in neuroscience, evolution, psychoanalysis, and philosophical and historical studies, provide an overview of the most important aspects of these developments. Beginning with a chronicle of the history of the Jungian movement, areas covered include :
a background to the notion of ’archetype’
human development from a Jungian perspective
the creative extension of Jung’s theory of psychological types
re-evaluation of traditional Jungian methods of treatment in the light of contemporary scientific findings
Jungian development of transference and countertransference
a new formulation of synchronicity.
Analytical Psychology presents a unique opportunity to witness a school of psychotherapy going through a renaissance. Drawing on original insights from its founder, C.G. Jung, this book helps focus and shape the current state of analytical psychology and point to areas for future exploration.
