Jungian psychologist Tanya Wilkinson takes a balanced and compassionate look at the issue of victimization. In an engaging and entertaining style, she explore myths and fairy tales involving victims and heroes and encourages individuals to reach a new level of spiritual and emotional maturity.

In modern society we sympathize only with the purest of victims, those who are hurt and entirely blameless. However, why is it that victims of rape, alcoholic and dysfunctional families have to plead for understanding and mercy? This book takes a balanced and compassionate look at victimization. It explores myths and fairy tales involving victims and heroes and encourages individuals to reach a new level of spiritual and emotional security.

Book Description:

Using myth and fairy tales, Dr. Tanya Wilkinson adds insightful commentary on the individual dynamics and cultural patterns which contribute to the deep schism between "victims" and "heroes" in our society. In modern life we sympathize only with the blameless victim, and cling to the image of a "heroic ideal" - that is, if we are only good enough or strong enough, bad things will not happen to us. But bad things do happen to good and strong people, as well as to people who are not entirely blameless. Dr. Wilkinson moves beyond the debate of "who's at fault". Using the Persephone myth and four fairy tales, the author instead illustrates the deep archetypal forces at work in victim experiences and encourages us to search for the emotional and spiritual maturity which may be gained from them.
