Forthcoming 2018: Interpretation in Jungian Analysis: Art and Technique

Analytic interpretation is fundamental to the process of psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Interpretation is a primary medium by which the psychoanalytic art form is transmitted. What one chooses to say in analysis, why one chooses that particular thing to say, how one says it, when one says it - these are some of the building blocks of the interpretive process. This volume will provide those studying Analytical Psychology with the requisite knowledge and tools to competently and creatively incorporate the technique of interpretation. More specifically, readers will learn to differentiate between interpretative and non-interpretive interventions in therapy/analysis; explore of the origins of the interpretive process within psychoanalytic and Jungian frameworks; differentiate various levels and styles of interpretation; and examine particular uses of language in interpretation. Clinical examples will be provided throughout to illustrate the clinical technique of interpretation.

There are moments of connection between analysts and patients during any therapeutic encounter upon which the therapy can turn. Moments of Meeting in Psychoanalysis explores how analysts and therapists can experience these moments of meeting, shows how this interaction can become an enlivening and creative process, and seeks to recognise how it can change both the analyst and patient in profound and fundamental ways.
The theory and practice of contemporary psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy has reached an exciting new moment of generous and generative interaction. As psychoanalysts become more intersubjective and relational in their work, it becomes increasingly critical that they develop approaches that have the capacity to harness and understand powerful moments of meeting, capable of propelling change through the therapeutic relationship. Often these are surprising human moments in which both client and clinician are moved and transformed. Moments of Meeting in Psychoanalysis offers a window into the ways in which some of today’s practitioners think about, encourage, and work with these moments of meeting in their practices. Each chapter of the book offers theoretical material, case examples, and a discussion of various therapists’ reflections on and experiences with these moments of meeting. 
With contributions from relational psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and Jungian analysts, and covering essential topics such as shame, impasse, mindfulness and group work, this book provides new theoretical thinking and practical clinical guidance on how best to work with moments of meeting in any relationally oriented therapeutic practice. Moments of Meeting in Psychoanalysis will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, workers in other mental health fields, graduate students and anyone interested in change processes.
