She begins with a background of social attitudes about death and then discusses Freud, Jung, and the death wish, followed by a pilot study of four dying patients who are on the threshold of death. Her explanation of the way in which individuals relate to the fact of death includes some African stories of birth and death, rites for the dead, and psychopathological ways of dealing with death. Her exposition of current psychological ideas on the nature of symbolization and the expression of creative processes by symbols and symbol formation leads to reflections on clinical technique.
She deals with the nature of and hindrances to the creative process, concluding with an analysis of the intrapsychic interdependence of death, creation, and transformation. Jesus the Therapist, by Hanna Wolff. Stuttgart: Radius Verlag, Oak Park, Ill. Impressed by the frequency with which some Biblical expression to designate a psychic phenomenon or to encapsulate an insight would emerge in the course of her psychotherapeutic practice, Wolff characterizes Jesus as a therapist and a model of modern psychotherapy due to the abundance of his therapeutic insights in the New Testament.
She discusses the topics of the will to be well; the courage for self-encounter; getting into training; the human image of the human being; and who is a genuine psychotherapist? Maintaining that many of Jung's psychotherapeutic practices were based more on analytical method than is usually believed, Fordham defines analysis as a starting point for investigations that lay more emphasis than is usual on personal development in its social and cultural setting.
He asserts the need to evolve a unique treatment method for each case, considering that the personality of the therapist enters into the procedures adopted.

Archetypal Medicine, by Alfred J. Zurich: Schweizer Spiegel, Ziegler defines archetypal medicine as a type of psychosomatic medicine which tries to bring about change in disease symptoms through images which carry the symbolic essence of what is observed and are accompanied by a perceptible physical resonance. He draws upon Jungian concepts to seek causes for conditions of the psyche which appear as physical ailments full of symbolic meaning.
He states that archetypal medicine's prerequisite does not lie so much in the capacity for registering sense perceptions as it does in subjective, introverted intuition and an understanding of symbols, commenting that "our shadows take on substance. There are addenda on fever and on drinking and dryness. The Art of Psychotherapy, by Anthony Storr. Recognizing a considerable debt to Jung's ideas and to his own general psychiatric training and reading, Storr provides a practical manual for the practice and art of psychotherapy, primarily for postgraduate doctors who are embarking upon specialist training.
His view is that psychotherapy should be analytical and individual and that it is more concerned with understanding persons as whole beings and with changing attitudes than it is with abolishing symptoms directly. He proceeds systematically from the setting and the initial interview to establishing a pattern, making progress, interpretation, dreams, daydreams, paintings, writings, objectivity and intimate knowledge, and transference.
He discusses the hysterical personality, the depressive personality, the obsessional personality, and the schizoid personality, concluding with comments on cure, termination, and results, and the factor of the personality of the psychotherapist. Navaho Symbols of Healing, by Donald R. In searching for the "ancient roots of our own healing disciplines," Jungian psychiatrist Sandner explores the general principles governing the process of symbolic healing as exemplified by the Navaho process of healing, which is the main substance of their religion.
The healing process is not directed toward specific bodily symptoms, but it uses striking symbolic images to create harmony between the psyche and the forces around it in order to bring about change in the patients. Sandner's topics include symbolic healing; guardians of the symbols; the constituent parts of the Navaho religion and the whole of action; fear of possession; return to the origins; the ritual control of evil; the process of renewal through death and rebirth; mandalas of healing and the pollen path; the Navaho synthesis; and ancient and modern symbolic healing.
Jungian gloss. In order to illustrate the analytic process, Carotenuto presents a woman's case that covers five years of formal Jungian analysis and five further years of observation. Although outwardly healthy, the middle-aged woman expressed serious inner conflicts and private suffering, while her dreams and their interpretation indicated the times of transition.
Carotenuto analyzes the sequence of dreams as: a gift dream 1 ; dependence on the mother 2 ; a healing journey ; temple and cross ; action and transformation 7 ; music of analysis 8 ; quality of existence ; a slight manipulation ; depression and revelation ; the analyst is tempted to give an answer ; a religious development ; tables of the law ; images of the psyche ; stairs that go down to the water ; false suffering ; a vision of the world ; and separation at end of analysis He also discusses the question of the influence of the analyst and respect for patient's individuality.
Noting that a large portion of medical endeavors are concerned with psychosomatic and neurotic disorders, Swiss analyst Guggenbiihl-Craig examines the nature of the psychopath in terms of the archetype of the invalid, describing psychopathy as the invalidism of Eros, wherein something in the psyche is missing or markedly underdeveloped. He discusses the archetype of the invalid as an inborn pattern of behavior, a typically human situation in which all human beings come into the world deficient, lacking something; and they become more deficient as lives progress through accidents, illnesses, aging processes, and invalid complexes.
Following his analysis of invalidism and of Eros, he discusses psychopaths in literature and the historical development of the term psychopathy, after which he analyzes five primary symptoms of psychopathy, namely, inability to love anything, missing or deficient sense of morality, lack of psychic development, chronic background of depression, and background of fear. Also described are secondary symptoms of psychopathy, compensated psychopaths, and the treatment of psychopaths.
Considering that the "longing for paradise" freedom from conflict, suffering, and deprivation is frequently the more or less conscious motivation prompting people to begin an analysis, Jungian analyst Jacoby, initially intending to focus on the therapeutic process, circurnambulates the archetypal image of paradise through the realms of social psychology, ethnology, religion, theology, and anthropology.
In the first part "paradise as an image of primal bliss" , he discusses the relationship between mother and child, the mother archetype, infant paradise and infant hell, the father archetype, and motherhood and career, among other topics.
The second part concerns a psychological interpretation of the Biblical tale of Paradise and the Fall, including original sin, moral code, superego and conscience, the problem of the shadow, and consciousness and striving for "bliss. This volume consists of forty-two papers contributed on the subjects of money six papers ; food, drink, and feast five ; fashion two ; training eight ; clinical practice and research fourteen ; and theoretical explorations seven.
Nineteen are presented by authors whose other works appear in this annotated bibliography. Woodman explores the meaning of the feminine and suggests practical ways women can learn to listen to its authentic voice and discover and love the goddess lost within her own rejected body. She discusses the problems of obesity and of anorexia nervosa in terms of the repressed feminine and the need for the women to come to grips with their femininity.
Following her presentation of the experimental background of primary and secondary obesity, Jung's association experiment and its application to obesity, and the nature of complexes and personality traits, she analyzes the relationships of body and psyche, including body metabolism; some contemporary views on obesity; how stress influences obesity; pathological effects of fear and rage; clinical approaches to obesity; and Jung's concept of psyche and body.
She interprets three case studies and then concludes with an analysis of the loss of the feminine by considering the father complex, the mother complex, and food, sexuality, and religion complexes. Richmond, Calif. Writing from many years of experience as a Jungian analyst and practicing homeopath, Whitmont examines analogies in homeopathy and analytical psychology and presents synchronicity or meaningful non-causality as a unifying principle in psychosomatics.
Following an overview of the practice of homeopathy, psychic and somatic interrelationships, the law of similars in analytical psychology, and nature and symbol and imaginal reality, he discusses homeopathic remedies and their archetypal forms. In putting homeopathy into practice, he analyzes the problem of soul-body relationship in prescribing and the problems of chronic prescribing, psychosomatics, and surgery.
He concludes with case studies allergic diathesis; new or forgotten indications of tuberculin; intestinal nosodes; and the chronic miasms. Rome: Astrolabio, Drawing on a diary of Sabina Spielrein one of young Dr. Jung's patients in Burgh6lzli mental hospital in and on her letters to Jung and to Freud and Freud's letters to her, Carotenuto examines the very complex love-hate situation that saw the three principals struggling in a "trapped" predicament. He examines the story of Spielrein, who was born in the Ukraine in , wrote her thesis on schizophrenia for a Zurich medical diploma, became a psychoanalyst in Freud's establishment, and practiced in Geneva and in the USSR after the Revolution.
Analysis, Repair, and Individuation, by Kenneth Lambert. In considering the matter of chaos, disintegration, and the conflict of opposites out of which various kinds of integration can arise, Lambert demonstrates the way in which clinical activities are being used by modern Jungians to help the psychological movement of patients into individuation. Following his discussions on individuation and the mutual influence of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, as well as personal psychology and the choice of analytic school, he analyzes the topics of relationships of individuation and the personality of the analyst; resistance and counterresistance; archetypes, object relations and internal objects; reconstruction; transference, countertransference and interpersonal relations; dreams and dreaming; and the individuation process.
An anthology of original papers by Katherine Bradway, Karen A. Signell, Geraldine H. Spare, Charles T.
Stewart, Louis H. Stewart, and Clare Thompson. In this collection of nine papers by six authors who use sandplay therapy in connection with their practice of Jungian analysis, the contributors demonstrate the broad range of applications of the "pictures" or "worlds" revealed by the miniature figures placed by a patient in a sand tray.
Suggesting that many men and women are addicted in one way or another because the patriarchal culture emphasizes specialization and perfection, Woodman proposes the recognition of the Jungian ideal of wholeness rather than perfection as the goal of psychological development. She examines the rituals of compulsive consumption and the split between body and spirit, whose healing requires the recovery of a feminine ground of being in which the language of the body itself must be heard.

Her topics include sacred and demonic ritual; addiction to perfection; obesity and anorexia; assent to the goddess the Great Mother ; rape and the demon lover; and the ravished bride on the integration of unconscious contents and the acceptance of one's own biological and spiritual identity. The nature of the feminine is explored through case histories, dreams, mythology and literature, food rituals, body imagery, sexuality, and creativity.
Recognizing that there are important general traits in backgrounds and symptoms that are shared by all alcoholics, and having been impressed during the years of her training in analytical psychology by the similarities between the individual approach of Jungian analysis and the collective approach of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bauer writes about the problem of alcoholism from the point of view of the woman drinker. Using case material, sociological studies, dream analysis, and archetypal patterns from mythology, she discusses the topics of the medical background and theoretical models of alcoholism; Jungian concepts of alcoholism; archetypal patterns of alcoholism; the woman alcoholic four case studies ; psychological factors; and archetypal motifs.
