Mark Winborn Featured on Speaking of Jung Podcast

Speaking of Jung Podcast - Posted on July 2, 2018 (Click Here to Listen)

This is Dr. Winborn's second interview on the Speaking of Jung Podcast hosted by Laura London. The focus is on his forthcoming (Routledge, Aug. 8, 2018) book Interpretation in Jungian Analysis: Art and Technique.


Analytic interpretation is fundamental to the process of psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Interpretation is the medium by which the psychoanalytic art form is transmitted. What one chooses to say in analysis, why one chooses it, how one says it, when one says it; these are the building blocks of the interpretive process and the focus of Interpretation in Jungian Analysis: Art and Technique.
This volume is the first of its kind in the literature of analytical psychology. Until now, the process of interpretation has been addressed only briefly in general Jungian texts. Interpretation in Jungian Analysis provides an in-depth exploration of the process, including the history of analytic technique, the role of language in analytic therapy, the poetics and metaphor of interpretation, and the relationship between interpretation and the analytic attitude. In addition, the steps involved with the creation of clear, meaningful, and transformative interpretations are plainly outlined. Throughout the book, clinical examples and reader exercises are provided to deepen the learning experience. The influence of the Jungian perspective on the interpretative process is outlined, as are the use of analytic reverie and confrontation during the analytic process.

In addition to the historical, technical, and theoretic aspects of interpretation, this book also focuses on the artistic and creative elements that are often overlooked in the interpretive process. Ultimately, cultivating fluidity within the interpretive process is essential to engaging the depth and complexity of the psyche. Interpretation in Jungian Analysis will be of great interest to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists of all theoretical orientations and will be essential reading for students of analytical psychology.

Mark Winborn

“This work is destined to become one of the basic texts for training contemporary Jungian psychoanalysts." - Murray Stein, PhD, former President of the International Association for Analytical Psychology

"This comprehensive exploration of mainstream Jungian and Freudian perspectives on the place of interpretation in the therapeutic process offers readers of all analytic schools and levels of experience a comprehensive explication of the transformational role of interpretation in analytic therapy." - Howard Levine, MD, faculty for the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Psychoanalytic Institute of New England

“It is no dry study, but a generous, rich, robust, and immensely practical book, taking us to the improvisational heart of the interpretive moment. It will serve as an essential resource for many years to come." - Marcus West, UK Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Analytical Psychology

"This is a landmark contribution to the field of analytical psychology. It will be invaluable to Jungian trainees across the world while offering valuable clarification and refreshment to even the most experienced clinicians." - Warren Colman, former UK Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Analytical Psychology
