'The author relies heavily on case studies and these are evocative and illustrate the successful use of the work of imagery and symbolism. Jungian interpretations and concepts are used throughout, but the approach is original. Once they are familiar with the author's terminology and methods, readers should find a great deal of value here to apply in their own practice.' - Changes (An International Journal of Psychology and Psychotherapy) 'The dictionary analyses and explains numerous symbols and images with an emphasis on their use in counselling. Indexes and contents lists drawing out schematic structures of the symbols - nature, animal, human, man-made, religious, mythological, abstract or individual - make for easier reference.' - New LIFE This dictionary analyses and explains numerous symbols and images, with an emphasis on their use in counselling. Many are developed by the addition of possible psychological interpretations. The subjects in the Dictionary all have some relevance to symbols and symbolic language. Some of the subjects refer to sayings in everyday use, and all of them have an imagery content. Overall, the book is intended to help the reader understand the vast wealth of symbols and symbolic language. Indexes and Contents lists drawing out schematic structures of the symbols - nature, animal, human, man made, religious, mythological, abstract or individual - make for easier reference.
