Jungian psychotherapy : a study in analytical psychology by Michael Fordham( Book )

28 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'This book contains an exposition of therapeutic methods used by analytical psychologists. It is based on Jung's own investigations and includes developments in his ideas and practices that others have initiated. Jung held that his work was scientific in that he had discovered an objective field of enquiry. When applying this assertion to analytical psychotherapy one must make it quite clear that, unlike what happens in other sciences, the personality of the therapist enters into the procedures adopted in a way uncharacteristic of experimental method. In the natural sciences study is different in kind and the investigator's personality is significant only in his capacity to be a scientist. By contrast, in analytical therapy the personal influence of the analyst pervades his work and furthermore extends to generations of psychotherapists; the way I conduct psychotherapy is inevitably influenced by my having known Jung, having developed a personal loyalty to him and by being treated by three therapists who came under his influence. This maintains however differently from Jung and my own therapists I conduct myself when treating patients, or whatever conceptions, models or theories of my own I have developed. It is with these reflections in mind that I have called this volume Jungian Psychotherapy with the subtitle: A Study in Analytical Psychology. Thus my debt to Jung is acknowledged but it is also indicated that analytical psychology is a discipline in its own right.'- Michael Fordham, from the Preface

The Self and Autism is a piece of original research into maturation in infancy and its psychopathology. Michael Fordham was the first to introduce the idea that the self, previously considered realizable only in later life, could be experienced by children in a manner appropriate to their age; he also found that the archetypes of the collective unconscious whose images could be demonstrated in childhood, functioned in essentially the same way as Jung described in the case of adult persons. From these two concepts he developed a theory of individuation in childhood

'There is still much to be said about Lagache the psychoanalyst. As early as 1947, he founded the Library of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Psychology at Presses Universitaires de France, and forty-two volumes have appeared, by French and foreign authors, nine of them works or reprints of articles by Freud. It was here, under the direction of Lagache, that Laplanche and Pontalis produced their precise and important The Language of Psychoanalysis (1968), which has been translated into many languages. At the same time, Lagache played a role of prime importance in the history of the psychoanalytic movement in France. He participated actively in two main splits that mark the history of this movement and was president, at their inception, of both the French Psychoanalytic Society in 1952 and the Psychoanalytic Association of France in 1964.Eva Rosenblum collated the texts of The Works of Daniel Lagache and published them in six volumes between 1977 and 1986 at the Presses Universitaires de France. It was an enormous research task, and we can be grateful to her for accomplishing it.The present English edition in one volume is a selection of those texts that are most representative of the psychoanalytic thinking of Daniel Lagache. It is a thinking that is rich in epistemology, ensuring that psychoanalysis is set in relationship to behaviorism and clarifies its status as an "exact science". It deserves to provoke a lively response from the English speaking public.'- From the Foreword by Didier Anzieu
