Winborn's "Shared Realities" Reviewed in JAP

Mark Winborn’s book (editor and contributor), Shared Realites: Participation Mystique and Beyond (Fisher King Press), is reviewed in the September 2015 issue of the Journal of Analytical Psychology (Vol. 60, #4, pp. 563-565). The review is written by Stephen Bloch of the South African Association of Jungian Analysts (SAAJA). The volume includes several IRSJA contributors - Pamela Power, Dianne Braden, Deborah Bryon, Jerome Bernstein, and John White – as well as Jungian analysts and psychoanalysts from other societies and countries (Marcus West, Robert Wasksa, Michael Eigen, and Francois Martin Vallas). 

From the review: "This book is an engaging and enriching exploration of a key Jungian term which is often overlooked. It is a concept that one often thinks one has grasped and integrated. On reading this panoramic spread of papers one becomes aware of the generative significance and clinical usefulness that a full understanding of this concept brings. Moreover, as the more psychoanalytically based authors demonstrate, participation mystique may well be the area of intersection between analytical psychology and broader psychoanalytic thinking. The result is a comprehensive sense of how the concept is understood and utilized by contemporary analysts."…/10.…/1468-5922.12170_2/full
