The Cambridge companion to Jung( Book )

46 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of specially commissioned essays is a critical introduction to the psychology of Carl Jung, one of the founders of psychoanalysis. Jung broke with Freud and developed his own theories which he called 'analytical psychology'. The fifteen essays set Jung in the context of his own time, outline the current practice and theory of Jungian psychology and show how Jungians continue to question and evolve his thinking and apply it to aspects of modern culture and psychoanalysis. Andrew Samuels's introduction gives an appreciation of Jung's work and discusses the three approaches to analytical psychology. The Companion includes a full chronology of his life and work, reading lists, a case study and a glossary. It is an indispensible reference tool for both students and specialists, written by an international team of Jungian analysts and scholars from various disciplines
The self-esteem trap : raising confident and compassionate kids in an age of self-importance by Polly Young-Eisendrath( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kids today are depressed and anxious. They also seem to feel entitled to every advantage and unwilling to make the leap into adulthood. As Polly Young-Eisendrath makes clear in this brilliant account of where a generation has gone astray, parents trying to make their children feel special are unwittingly interfering with their kids' ability to accept themselves and cope with life. Clarifying an enormous cultural change, The Self-Esteem Trap shows why so many young people have trouble with empathy and compassion, struggle with moral values, and are stymied in the face of adversity. Young-Eisendrath offers prescriptive advice on how adults can help kids--through the teen and young adult years--develop self-worth, setting them on the right track to productive, balanced, and happy lives

Jung's self psychology : a constructivist perspective by Polly Young-Eisendrath( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jung was fascinated by the problem of unity in the personality. If the personality is made up of multiple voices or affective-imaginal states, as he believed it was, then how does an individual achieve a core self? Jung concluded that a coherent and continuous self is the hard won achievement of consciousness, the product of a mature personality in the second half of life. His theory of the integration of multiple subjectivities into an individuating self' anticipates current trends in constructivism and developmental psychology. Jung did not systematize his own work, nor attempt to make accessible many of his most complex ideas about the self. This volume explores his self psychology, its meaning and its application within the context of other contemporary theories of subjectivity. To describe Jung's self psychology more fully in the light of contemporary theories, the authors introduce twelve other self theories in a comparative analysis of the clinical case of a midlife man in psychotherapy. From Kohut and Piaget to Lichtenberg and Loevinger, the authors compare Jung's theories with other clinical and developmental approaches. The book's final chapter offers cogent suggestions for future use of Jung's self psychology. Unique in its treatment and understanding of Jung's theories, this volume illuminates and simplifies many of his central ideas about the self. For Jungians, it provides a contemporary context in which to read and systematize his work. For professionals in the larger therapeutic and educational communities, it offers an up-to-date introduction to a provocative and imaginative body of work that is a central chapter of modern theories of subjectivity
Gender and desire : uncursing Pandora by Polly Young-Eisendrath( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For women and men to reach their full potential of development as individuals and in relationships, they must break Pandora's curse and free themselves from the myth of the power of female beauty. In working to liberate us from the curse of Pandora, Young-Eisendrath has developed a theory of desire: desire contains within it a primordial absence, a sense that something is missing. When we come to understand the nature of desire itself we can be liberated from its domination. Drawing on experiences from culture, everyday life, and psychotherapy, Polly Young-Eisendrath's Gender and Desire: Uncursing Pandora provides a full engagement with the intricacies and complexities of gender, desire, and liberation for women and men in a postmodern world

Awakening and insight : Zen Buddhism and psychotherapy by Polly Young-Eisendrath( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buddhism first came to the West many centuries ago through the Greeks, who also influenced some of the culture and practices of Indian Buddhism. As Buddhism has spread beyond India, it has always been affected by the indigenous traditions of its new homes. When Buddhism appeared in America and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s, it encountered contemporary psychology and psychotherapy, rather than religious traditions. Since the 1990s, many efforts have been made by Westerners to analyze and integrate the similarities and differences between Buddhism and it therapeutic ancestors, particularly Jungian psychology. Taking Japanese Zen-Buddhism as its starting point, this volume is a collection of critiques, commentaries, and histories about a particular meeting of Buddhism and psychology. It is based on the Zen Buddhism and Psychotherapy conference that took place in Kyoto, Japan, in 1999, expanded by additional papers, and includes: new perspectives on Buddhism and psychology, East and West cautions and insights about potential confusions traditional ideas in a new light. It also features a new translation of the conversation between Schin'ichi Hisamatsu and Carl Jung which took place in 1958. Awakening and Insight expresses a meeting of minds, Japanese and Western, in a way that opens new questions about and sheds new light on our subjective lives. It will be of great interest to students, scholars and practitioners of psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and analytical psychology, as well as anyone involved in Zen Buddhism
The gifts of suffering : finding insight, compassion, and renewal by Polly Young-Eisendrath( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Dutch and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about the gifts - insight, compassion, and renewal - of life's unavoidable suffering and pain. Polly Young-Eisendrath, a noted Jungian analyst, shows us how to move beyond our pain toward greater hope and understanding. Surrounded by anti-suffering campaigns and an optimistic, "can do" culture, we try to eliminate whatever hurts us: an illness, a spouse, depression, duty, work. What we don't realize is that much of our suffering is the direct consequence of our own (often unacknowledged) beliefs and attitudes, states of mind that are carried over into our perceptions and actions. The message of this book is that, while pain is unavoidable, we can choose to learn and grow through the experience, or we can remain locked in a cycle of chaos and more suffering. For it is not until we reach our limits that we know how to overcome them. Until we confront our greatest fears, we don't know our courage. Only when adversity has knocked down our defenses do we pose the big question: What is the meaning of my life? Drawing on the traditions that have enriched her own life experience - the theories of Carl Jung, the practice of psychoanalysis, and the teachings of Buddhism - Young-Eisendrath illuminates the lives of four people who have faced tremendous hardships, yet found renewed insight and compassion as a result

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a chance encounter with a handsome, idealistic stranger on a plane in 1969, Polly Young-Eisendrath rediscovered Ed Epstein a decade later when she least expected it. After untangling themselves from their existing relationships, they married in 1985 and spent the next 25 years together. They were soul mates, but in 2001, Ed (at the vital age of 53) began to show signs of Alzheimer's disease. over the next 10 years, as her husband gradually reversed his mental maturity, Young-Eisendrath was faced with the question, what is love? The Present heart is an insightful journey of living in the present moment. In a deeply moving yet unsentimental voice, Young-Eisendrath draws on her lifelong practices of Buddhism and psychoanalysis and her own unique view of love, as well as a circle of profound thinkers including author Abigail Thomas, psychoanalyst Nancy McWilliams, and Buddhist teacher Shinzen Young. A thoughtful meditation on the human experience, The Present Heart shows how our most intimate relationships, often the source of our greatest pain, can prove to be our path to spiritual enlightenment. The book offers a new perspective on how to maintain engaged, reciprocal relationships--with a partner, parent, child, or friend--under any and all circumstances"--

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducción a Jung( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro es un instrumento de referencia indispensable para el estudio de las teorías junguianas, y una notable contribución a la bibliografía en español sobre uno de los fundadores del psicoanálisis. Aunque su persona ha recibido críticas frontales y apasionadas, la influencia de sus ideas ha sido decisiva en nuestro siglo: las realidades múltiples, la función de los símbolos, la importancia del desarrollo adulto, el autodescubrimiento espiritual, la necesidad de recurrir a perspectivas multiculturales, etc., son cuestiones que se encuentran en las obras de Jung y sin duda constituyen temas centrales de interés en el actual debate político, sociocultural y religioso al que Introducción a Jung quiere contribuir
