Psychopathology: Contemporary Jungian Perspectives

Copertina anteriore
Andrew Samuels
Karnac, 1 gen 1989 - 355 pagine
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, mania, psychosis, paranoia, masochism, fetishism, transvestisism, perversion, marital dysfunction, survivor syndrome, and old age. The contributors include some of the most creative and distinguished clinicians in the Jungian world today. 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 which seem special to analytical psychology. In this way, psychoanalytically and eclectically orientated practitioners can make full use of this book.
