"Contemporary Jungian Clinical Practice is the welcome companion to Jungian Thought in the Modern World produced by the same editors, Elphis Christopher and Hester McFarland Solomon. This book on clinical practice really gives depth and body to the theory. But equally importantly, it gives much valuable information on actual clinical work. Taken together, these two volumes provide that rare thing: theory refined in the crucible of clinical practice."-Rosemary Gordon
‘This book will dispel the notion that a Jungian therapist is one who shies away from the infant, the body, and the primitive defenses that other analytically oriented practitioners are forced to explore.
‘The papers in this book give an excellent picture of the actual complexity of vision that informs contemporary Jungian clinical work.
‘To immerse oneself in these papers is to admire the theoretical breadth and the trust in the therapeutic process that has always made analytical psychology so thorough when exploring particular complexes and so respectful of the individual undergoing treatment. This book bears witness to a way of working and being trained to work that is deeply, ethically healing of the psyches of suffering people.’ -- John Beebe, author of Integrity in Depth, founding editor of The San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal, editor emeritus of The Journal of Analytical Psychology, past President of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco
