Jungian Psychoanalysis: A Contemporary Introduction

by Mark Winborn 

Part of the Routledge Series – Contemporary Introductions to Psychoanalysis.

As with other volumes in the series, this volume is not an introduction to Jung for the general public. It provides a succinct introduction to Jung’s main ideas but also outlines the debates and critiques of Jung’s theoretical framework across the decades. Additionally, it highlights the similarities and differences between Jung’s model and concepts from various schools of contemporary psychoanalysis. As such, it serves as an introduction to the Jungian model for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists from other psychoanalytic orientations, orients the experienced Jungian clinician to the overlap between Jungian concepts and contemporary psychoanalysis, and it serves as a concise distillation of material essential to candidates for propaedeuticum examination preparation.
