ABSTRACT

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’ problems
    • transference 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.
