Frames of Mind provides a fresh and stimulating introduction to the world of Post-Jungian film and television studies. To orientate the reader the book starts with an overview of analytical psychology and how it has been used to analyze films. From that starting point it broadens out to include topics such as: why we have genuine emotional responses to films which we know to be unreal; how and why we watch television; the unconscious motifs of advertising; and the psychological role that technology plays in contemporary society.
Film and television programmes considered in Frames of Mind include: Chinatown (Polanski) and Star Trek: The Next Generation. A number of television advertisements are also considered.
This book will appeal to students, researchers, academics and practitioners interested in either media and, or, analytical psychology.

'Hockley's is a big screen approach - for he seeks to link Jungian and post-Jungian ideas about film with the sounds and images that flicker across everyone's everyday experience. In this mixture of the formal and the informal, he performs an act of therapy for Jungian media criticism itself, rooting it (for its own good) in the popular and the ubiquitous. The process brings out aspects of Jung's work on sexuality and the body that often get overlooked in academic circles.' – Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex.
