Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Psychoanalysis had its origins in a study of trauma and the rediscovery' of childhood physical and sexual abuse has again revived psychiatric interest in dissociative disorders resulting from trauma. In this throught-provoking book Donald E. Kalsched draws on his own clinical work to show the value of Jung's insights into the inner world of the psyche in treating such patients, especially those suffering from multiple personality disorder and post-traumatic stress. At the same time he proposes some revisions to Jung's theories in response to the findings of researchers and clinicians approaching the problem from different theoretical perspectives such as object relations and self psychology.

Synopsis:

This work deals with the psychoanalytic interpretation of trauma, with respect to the views of Carl Jung. Kalsched shows the value of Jung's insights in treating traumatized patients, and proposes revisions to Jung's theories in response to his own and other enquiries into trauma.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 219-225) and index.

Jennifer, May 7, 2006 (view all comments by Jennifer)
Kalsched offers an understanding of how trauma (ongoing and one incident) affects a person's ability to trust his or her perception of the world and those with whom he or she is in relationship. He delves into soul wounds, not forgetting to address somatic conerns. This is the best book I have read on trauma to date.
