9781412853873: Incest Fantasies and Self-Destructive Acts: Jungian and Post-Jungian Psychotherapy in Adolescence

Mainstream analysts working in the Jungian tradition have largely neglected adolescents. Mara Sidoli and Gustav Bovensiepen remedy that omission by showing how and why psychological and physical abuse suffered by young children erupts in violent and destructive behavior against the self and others. Using clinical material, they establish the link between archetypal imagery, disturbed behavior, and instinctual drive.

Drawing from all schools of analytical psychology, the authors, along with several associates, focus mainly on severe neurotic disturbances and behavioral problems occurring in adolescence. Because most disturbances originate in the body, the contributors concentrate on self-destructive behavior: suicide, self-mutilation, and other self-damaging acts. Focused heavily on the treatment of these adolescents, the text has selections from an international group of contributors, providing diverse accounts of both theoretical and technical approaches to therapy. The case histories illustrate the relationship between the analyst and the adolescent patient as it develops in consultation. Interweaving the concepts of Jung, Freud, and others makes this volume a unique contribution to contemporary psychoanalysis. It will be of sustained interest to psychoanalysts, child psychotherapists, social workers, psychiatrists, and psychologists.

About the Author:

Mara Sidoli (1937-2000) was president of the Jung Institute in Santa Fe, California and director of the Institute for the Advancement of Analytical Psychology. She is the author of The Unfolding Self and the co-editor of Jungian Child Psychotheraphy



Gustav Bovensiepen is the medical director of the Max Burger Clinic of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Berlin and a training analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Berlin. He has published widely in German and English.

Review:

“This book is a major Jungian contribution to the literature on sexual abuse. The rich tapestry of different theoretical strands is exemplified by clinical material covering a wide range of problems which forcefully convey the challenges of working with adolescents. . . . This book has much to commend it. It addresses many of the psychic consequences of abuse. There is a wealth of clinical material conveying the immediacy of adolescence, and a breadth of theoretical discussion that reflects contemporary Jungian thinking.”

—Clive Britten, Journal of Analytical Psychology

Incest Fantasies and Self-Destructive Acts, edited by Mara Sioli and Gustav Bovensiepen, is a most welcome and indeed a most necessary and long awaited exposition of the Jungian understanding and clinical handling of the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents. The editors have brought together papers by experienced analytical psychologists, working in several different countries. This gives the readers an overview of the diversity of approaches which the relatively non-doctrinaire character of analytical psychology facilitates and so helps to make for a sensitive response to patients and to the subtlety of the relationship as it evolves between analyst and analysand. . . . [T]his book is rich in excellent and well described case studies. The observations, intuitive perceptions, understanding and ideas are interesting and challenging.”

—Rosemary Gordon, The San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal

“An important contribution to the contemporary psychoanalytic dialogue concerning adolescent development and the treatment of psychopathology in adolescence.”

—Thomas H. Ogden, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute

“The book revolves around the activation of incest fantasies and incestuous acting out in adolescence, interpreting this phenomenon as a potentially creative and healing regression. . . . This theoretical/clinical thread is elegantly elaborated throughout the book.”

—Alicia F. Lieberman, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

"This remarkable book is a significant contribution, both to the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents and to the rapprochement between psychoanaly­sis and analytical psychology."

—Roger Brooke, Director of Training in Clinical Psychology, Duquesne University

"... A most welcome and indeed a most necessary and long awaited exposition of the Jungian understanding and clinical handling of the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents."

—Rosemary Gordon, editor, Journal of Analytical Psychology

"This book is a useful addition to the literature on adolescence: it is the first seri­ous contribution to the subject by a group of Analytical (Jungian) Psychologists; it also covers a wide range of treatment methods from strictly analytic procedures to group therapies and institutional caring. . . . stimulating and thought provoking."

—Dr. Michael Fordham
