9780933029163: Practical Jung: Nuts and Bolts of Jungian Psychotherapy

Here is the thought of Carl Gustav Jung, the great Swiss psychologist, applied to the real world of the therapist's office. Dr. Wilmer explores the Jungian approach in a deceptively light style, bringing not only his years of experience but his special wit, wisdom, and skills as an illustrator. Anyone interested in the process of psychotherapy will gain a new understanding and new insights, enjoying many a chuckle along the way. Psychotherapy opens up wounds that, if mishandled, may become worse or may not heal. It almost goes without saying that any method of treatment can be misused. The intimacy of psychotherapy and the power projected upon the therapist make that potential misuse especially dangerous. This book highlights ways for both patient and therapist to recognize when the wrong direction has been taken and alerts them to positive ways of coping with such problems, ways in which what might have gone wrong is turned into what can be most helpful in psychological growth. The focus of this book is not traditional psychopathology, reductive analysis or big interpretations. It is about what is and what facilities an I-Thou relationship. It is about ordinary courtesy and human concern without sentimental shibboleths.

About the Author:

Harry Aron Wilmer, M.D. (1917-2005), was founder, emeritus director, and president of the Institute for the Humanities at Salado, the small central Texas village where he had lived since 1971, and where he was a senior Jungian analyst in private practice. Wilmer received his M.D. and other degrees from the University of Minnesota. He has been a National Research Council fellow in the medical sciences at Johns Hopkins, a fellow in internal medicine and neuropsychiatry at the Mayo Clinic, where he was also a consultant in psychiatry. Dr. Wilmer's creative work in the Navy was the subject of an award-winning ABC docudrama, starring Lee Marvin, with Arthur Kennedy as Wilmer. Bill Moyers produced two PBS television documentaries on Wilmer’s work at the Salado institute. Dr. Wilmer authored numerous books and articles and lectured throughout the world. He and his wife Jane raised five children. He died in his home at the age of eighty-eight.
