Jungian Psychoanalysis or Analytical Psychology has evolved in unexpected and exciting ways, exploring new paths in the spirit of Jung. The openness and diversity of the Jungian approach are captured in this collection of bold new essays by some of today's most outstanding Jungian analysts. Jungian Psychoanalysis explains what Jungian Psychoanalysis is all about, how it relates to other types of contemporary therapy, and what it can contribute to the debates now taking place among psychotherapists all over the world, as dissatisfaction grows with the limitations of both drug treatments and cognitive-behavioral therapies. This book vividly depicts where Jungian Psychoanalysis has been, where it stands today in relation to a wide array of clinical issues, and where it is headed as it moves into its second century. "In the thirty-six chapters of Jungian Psychoanalysis we meet some of the leading thinkers and therapists who embody the living spirit of Jung's work in action. This is a fascinating and indispensable book, not only for anyone who practices within the spirit of Jung's thought but also for anyone who takes up that spirit as a way of conducting their own life."-Robert D. Romanyshyn, author of The Wounded Researcher: Doing Research with Soul in Mind "Jungian Psychoanalysis is an indispensable resource. Each chapter brings together Jung's ideas, multidisciplinary sources, other psychologies, case illustrations, and the author's own reflections. This combination results in exciting new directions for clinical practice. The book skillfully balances erudition with respect for the mysterious workings of the psyche."-Lawrence R. Alschuler, author of The Psychopolitics of Liberation: Political Consciousness from a Jungian Perspective "Jung urged his students to work in the spirit rather than the letter of his depth-psychological theories. In Jungian Psychoanalysis, Jungian analysts from six continents present a contemporary review of post-Jungian goals, methods, analytic process, and training. Their essays provide compelling accounts of the revelations and insights encountered by those who experience what it means to be human through a twenty-first-century Jungian lens."-Beverley Zabriskie, President, Jungian Psychoanalytic Association, New York "The analytic tradition initiated by C.G. Jung continues to evolve and develop new insights. Jungian Psychoanalysis is essential reading for therapists, analysts, and scholars who want to understand the most contemporary thinking in this dynamic field"-George B. Hogenson, author of Jung's Struggle with Freud Murray Stein is the author of The Principle of Individuation (2006), Jung's Map of the Soul (1998), and Transformation: Emergence of the Self (1998). Dr. Stein is President of the International School of Analytical Psychology, in Zurich.

Analytic interpretation is fundamental to the process of psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Interpretation is the medium by which the psychoanalytic art form is transmitted. What one chooses to say in analysis, why one chooses it, how one says it, when one says it; these are the building blocks of the interpretive process and the focus of Interpretation in Jungian Analysis: Art and Technique. This volume is the first of its kind in the literature of analytical psychology. Until now, the process of interpretation has been addressed only briefly in general Jungian texts. Interpretation in Jungian Analysis provides an in-depth exploration of the process, including the history of analytic technique, the role of language in analytic therapy, the poetics and metaphor of interpretation, and the relationship between interpretation and the analytic attitude. In addition, the steps involved with the creation of clear, meaningful, and transformative interpretations are plainly outlined. Throughout the book, clinical examples and reader exercises are provided to deepen the learning experience. The influence of the Jungian perspective on the interpretative process is outlined, as are the use of analytic reverie and confrontation during the analytic process. In addition to the historical, technical, and theoretic aspects of interpretation, this book also focuses on the artistic and creative elements that are often overlooked in the interpretive process. Ultimately, cultivating fluidity within the interpretive process is essential to engaging the depth and complexity of the psyche. Interpretation in Jungian Analysis will be of great interest to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists of all theoretical orientations and will be essential reading for students of analytical psychology.

From 1936 to 1941, C. G. Jung gave a four-part seminar series in Zurich on children's dreams and the historical literature on dream interpretation. This book completes the two-part publication of this landmark seminar, presenting the sessions devoted to dream interpretation and its history. Here we witness Jung as both clinician and teacher: impatient and sometimes authoritarian but also witty, wise, and intellectually daring, a man who, though brilliant, could be vulnerable, uncertain, and humbled by life's mysteries. These sessions open a window on Jungian dream interpretation in practice, as Jung examines a long dream series from the Renaissance physician Girolamo Cardano. They also provide the best example of group supervision by Jung the educator. Presented here in an inspired English translation commissioned by the Philemon Foundation, these sessions reveal Jung as an impassioned teacher in dialogue with his students as he developed and refined the discipline of analytical psychology. An invaluable document of perhaps the most important psychologist of the twentieth century at work, this splendid book is the fullest representation of Jung’s interpretations of dream literatures, filling a critical gap in his collected works.

The writings of C. G. Jung himself are the best place to read about all his main ideas—but where to start, when Jung's Collected Works run to more than eighteen volumes? Robert H. Hopcke's guide to Jung's voluminous writings shows exactly the best place to begin for getting a handle on each of Jung's key concepts and ideas—from archetypal symbols to analytical psychology to UFOs. Each chapter explains one of Jung's principal concerns, then directs the reader where to read about it in depth in the Collected Works. Each chapter includes a list of secondary sources to approach for further study—which the author has updated for this edition to include books published in the ten years since the Guided Tour's first appearance.

African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows explores the little-known racial relationship between the African diaspora and C.G. Jung’s analytical psychology. In this unique book, Fanny Brewster explores the culture of Jungian psychology in America and its often-difficult relationship with race and racism. Beginning with an examination of how Jungian psychology initially failed to engage African Americans, and continuing to the modern use of the Shadow in language and imagery, Brewster creates space for a much broader discussion regarding race and racism in America. Using Jung’s own words, Brewster establishes a timeline of Jungian perspectives on African Americans from the past to the present. She explores the European roots of analytical psychology and its racial biases, as well as the impact this has on contemporary society. The book also expands our understanding of the negative impact of racism in American psychology, beginning a dialogue and proposing how we might change our thinking and behaviors to create a twenty-first-century Jungian psychology that recognizes an American multicultural psyche and a positive African American culture. African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows explores the positive contributions of African culture to Jung’s theories and will be essential reading for analytical psychologists, academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies, African American studies, and American studies.
