The most student-focused introduction to Jung on the market
Written by a leading expert and practising university teacher, you will get all the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in studying Jung.

Jung: A Complete Introduction is designed to give you everything you need to succeed, all in one place. It covers the key areas that students are expected to be confident in, outlining the basics in clear, jargon-free English and providing added-value features like summaries of key books, and even lists of questions you might be asked in your seminar or exam.

The book uses a structure that mirrors the way Jung is taught on many university and counselling courses. Chapters include individuation and the archetypal power of the unconscious, Jung's early life, Jung's early career and key influences, Freud and Jung, the self and ego, the dark side, anima and animus, archetypes, typology, Jungian analysis, working with dreams, active imagination, developmental approaches, application of Jungian analysis to mental health needs, and Jung's legacy in culture, spirituality and therapy.

It succinctly maps the remarkable contribution of Jung's distinctive approach to a wide number of subjects, principally psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy and the human condition' Steve Mitchell, Dramatherapist / Director Pathfinder Studio; former Course Director of Dramatherapy, Roehampton Institute, London

This is a lucid and refreshingly innovative introduction to the complex thought of C.G. Jung. Its splendid mix of rich information and accessible presentation means it will be valuable to anyone from a whole range of disciplines, from Cultural Studies through to Psychology. I would not hesitate to recommend this genuinely helpful introduction to students and general readers alike, while analysts, too, will welcome Phil Goss's thoughtful presentation of Jung's theories. — Paul Bishop, William Jacks Chair of Modern Languages, University of Glasgow
Phil Goss combines dexterity in writing and clarity of thinking to create a goldmine of knowledge in this eminently readable book that transcends the constraints of a set formula. The ideas of two towering figures in the contemporary Jungian world, Wolfgang Giegerich and Sonu Shamdasani, are skilfully elaborated as are the developmental stages of Jung's thought. The latter culminates in Jung's all-important contribution to the history of ideas, viz. the psychological application of alchemy. The author brings to life the first meeting between the neurologist, Freud, and the psychiatrist, Jung, in the course of which the more mature Freud grounds the fiery stream of Jung's outpourings. Goss goes on to spell out the similarities in their thinking as well as the differences that led to their tragic split, the consequences of which continue to reverberate in the psychoanalytic world. Among the highlights of this farranging book is an account of the intellectual forerunners of Jung's thought that include the genius of Schopenhauer. The book is studded throughout with insightful quotations and dreams from Jung, and the acknowledgement of his paramount importance as a religious thinker, the application of which is exemplified in appropriate clinical vignettes. Questions for the studious reader, definitions of key notions, and further references for deeper research make this book a supremely useful tool for teaching Jung in the academy and training institutions. It should also find a wide circulation among lay readers as well as experienced psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. — Ann Casement, Licensed Psychoanalyst; Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute
Of the many introductions to Jung's work, I find this one not only the most comprehensive but, importantly, very readable for the non-Jungian. It will appeal to those in the arts as well as to those working in the psychological therapies and complementary disciplines - whether they are a seasoned practitioner, a student or a lay person who wishes to learn more about the man who challenged Freud's reductionist theories. Those not familiar with Jung's ideas, terminology or life will find this a coherent guide to what otherwise might be a maze. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of his intricate thinking about human psychology and is written in a style that is both erudite - with serious scholarship behind it - and accessible. There are parallels for me with Jung's own autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, which, unlike his scientific writings, offers poetic observations about life and how we psychologically negotiate the world. Phil Goss has written a work that not only celebrates his subject but also asks important questions. This work will endure, as it succinctly maps the remarkable contribution of Jung's distinctive approach to a wide number of subjects, principally psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy and the human condition. — Steve Mitchell, Dramatherapist / Director Pathfinder Studio; former Course Director of Dramatherapy, Roehampton Institute, London

Growing Pains

Dr Mike Shooter
Authors:
Dr Mike Shooter

It all begins in childhood. Doctor and psychiatrist Mike Shooter has spent over thirty years listening to patients, especially children and adolescents in crisis, helping them to find their stories and begin to make sense of their lives. Their stories are at the heart of this book. Occasionally strange and troubling, they are also inspirational, funny and illuminating. They open a door to the experience and problems of growing up as never before, sharing the process of children and families as, through therapy, they confront everything from loss or illness to destructive, even violent, behaviour.A passionate believer in the importance of listening rather than labeling, Mike Shooter draws on his breadth of experience - in surgery and therapy as well as his own battle with depression - to help us see how breakthroughs can be made and why we won't always get it right. Compelling and compassionate, this is a book to make us wiser and braver, and help children's stories find happier endings.

Grow!

Trevor Silvester
Authors:
Trevor Silvester

Trevor Silvester is a Harley Street therapist and author of Lovebirds who is revolutionising the way we understand human nature.Grow! is a distillation of over 20 years of experience as a therapist applied to the task of raising happy children.Your children develop primarily in response to your influence, says Trevor. Writing with wonderful wit and clarity, he shows why parents need to nurture their own personal growth so their children can grow to become who they want to be. He shows how parents can overcome their own limitations so they don't pass them onto their children, and how best to guide the young toward becoming strong, resilient and fulfilled adults.Trevor identifies two ways of being in the world; we're either in a state of growth or a state of protection, and he argues that our interpretation of childhood events, and modern culture, often needlessly trigger us into a state of protection, leaving us anxious, fearful and unwilling to live life fully. Grow! describes strategies for keeping us, parents and children, in a state of growth.Using eight parenting mantras to guide you, he shares valuable lessons gained from the latest scientific research, as well as many hours in the therapy room. Incorporating them into your parenting will improve your child's wellbeing enormously. Incorporating them into your life will improve everything.To assist in making these new ideas habitual in the shortest space of time, Trevor has also created a series of downloads for you to listen to, using principles of unconscious influence that have been proven to work.
