Jungian art therapy

As many of you know, I've been busy working on a book that focused on the intersection between Jung, analytical psychology and art therapy. I'm pleased to announce the forthcoming book to be published January 2018:  Jungian Art Therapy: Dreams, images, and analytical psychology.   

Jungian Art Therapy aims to provide a clear, introductory manual for art therapists on how to navigate Jung’s model of working with the psyche. This exciting new text circumambulates Jung’s map of the mind so as to reinforce the theoretical foundations of analytical psychology while simultaneously defining key concepts to help orient practitioners, students, and teachers alike. The book provides several approaches and methods, which illustrate how to work with the numerous images originating from the unconscious and glean understanding from them. Throughout the text readers will enjoy clinical vignettes to support each chapter and illuminate important lessons and deeper understand of how to work with the unconsciouis content.

Theory and application are grounded in images that were made spontaneously by individuals studying the vivid images arising from the unconscious using a Jungian perspective. As a contribution to the field of Jungian psychology and art therapy, I hope this book will open doors for those who are interested in engaging with the unconscious and working with images.
