Product Description

Review

"Kalsched’s invaluable work shows that our psychopathology has a spiritual core, and demonstrates that dealing with such material is a spiritual practice. I believe his work is a form of the redemption of evil; the therapist visits the patient’s hell with her, becomes a compassionate witness, and faces or even exorcises the devil in the patient’s soul." - Lionel Corbett, Journal of Analytical Psychology

About the Author

Donald Kalsched is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a training analyst with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. He is the author of numerous articles in analytical psychology, and lectures widely on the subject of early trauma and its treatment. His books include The Inner World of Trauma (1996).

This wonderful book was recommended by my psychotherapist. Kalsched brings both great therapy experience and human sensitivity and empathy to his subject. I can speak as one in therapy and not as a practitioner. It has enlightened the process for me. Kalsched evokes a Jungian perspective, using archetypes and dream work, and he interprets areas of human experience in ways that other therapists might regard as unscientific. However Kalsched shows there is an art in psychotherapy and demonstrates the need to look inward to the unconscious as well as outward to external experience.

I was very taken by his use of myths and stories to examine the human mind. I personally responded to his interpretations of Dante and The Little Prince and other stories. He shows the power and illumination of human experiences that some of us would call religious.

I lean towards Buddhism so at first I struggled with the concept of a soul but Kalsched shows how we can see it as a vital, animating subjective experience. Our world exists beyond just material forces. This is an optimistic book as it shows the resilience of the human soul and its capacity to become whole again even after severe trauma. I would recommend it to anyone in therapy or anyone interested in a human and Jungian approach to psychotherapy.

This is an excellent book for all psychotherapists..not just Jungians. It is a masterful integration of contemporary trends in psychoanalytic research in neuroscience and attachment theory with classical Jungian ideas.

This book is a clear and compassionate elucidation of dissociation' it will be of as much value to the 'client' as it will to the therapist. It explains from a psychological perspective one of the disorders known commonly to western shamans as 'soul loss'. It could be read alongside Sandra Ingerman's 'Soul Retrieval' for further explanation. Brilliant!

It looks like Kalsched may have written a definitive book on the subject of trauma and one that will be a point of reference for many psychotherapists in the years to come. He's also thrown a lifeline to trauma sufferers who will find so much that resonates in this book. He's tried to make it accessible not only to clinicians but also to a wider, educated readership and the theoretical basis of the work does not overly impinge on this aim. It really is a masterly piece of work, hugely informative but at times also very moving.

I'm not a psychologist but this book still is a great read for those of us who aren't professionals and read it for personal healing. I felt that there was a great deal more hope for healing in this book than in his first. I loved both however.
