Show synopsis This volume is an outstanding collection of papers written by Jungian analysts from different schools of analytical psychology on various aspects of psychopathology. The subjects covered include depression, anorexia, schizoid personality, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, mania, psychosis, paranoia, masochism, fetishism, transvestism, perversion, marital dysfunction, survivor syndrome, and old age. The contributors, who include some of the most creative and distinguished clinicians in the Jungian world today, are: B. Bosnack, Gustav Dreifuss, Alan Edwards, Michael Ford Ham, C. T. Frey-Wehrlin, Rosemary Gordon, Judith Hubback, Peer Hultberg, Mario Jacoby, Thomas Kirsch, F. Langegger, Rushi Ledermann, Fred Plaut, Joseph Redfearn, Ch. Robinson, Nathan Schwartz-Salant, Eva Seligman, Anthony Storr, Mary Williams, and Luigi Zoja. The book is intended to appeal beyond the Jungian community, and the editor's introductory remarks which precede each paper highlight (and where necessary explain) concepts and attitudes that seem special to analytical psychology. In this way, psychoanalytically and eclectically oriented practitioners can make full use of the book.
