Body, Mind and Healing After Jung by P-TaylorFrancisI

VIEWS: 54 PAGES: 5

It is difficult to point to an aspect of Jungian psychology that does not touch on mind, body and healing in some way. In this book Raya Jones draws on the triad of body, mind and healing and (re)presents it as a domain of ongoing uncertainty within which Jung's answers stir up further questions. Contributors from both clinical and scholarly backgrounds offer a variety of cultural and historical perspectives. Areas of discussion include: the psychosomatic nature of patients' problemstransference and counter-transference therapeutic techniques centred on movement or touch.Striking a delicate balance between theory-centred and practice-oriented approaches Body, Mind and Healing after Jung is essential reading for all Jungians.

Reviews

"This book offers a welcome interdisciplinary approach to Jungian psychology, with a focus on the
embodied nature of the psyche. An important theme is that of the mind as emergent, in terms of
neurobiology, personal relationships and the wider cultural context, creating a stimulating dialogue
between these different perspectives." - D
