Description - The Self in Transformation by Hester McFarland Solomon
This book brings together into one volume a number of articles that the author has written over the past 20 years, and includes a new extended essay written especially for this volume. The chapters, organized into sections, explore theoretical and clinical matters within a Jungian analytical framework, making carefully considered links to a number of psychoanalytical themes and concepts. The book also includes a section on ethics in the consulting room. In her new essay, Hester Solomon discusses pivotal themes in depth psychology: psychic transformation, synchronicity, and the emergence of complex adaptive systems in relation to the evolution of Jungs theory of the psychoid. She draws from fields of study such as anthropology, neuropsychology, the arts and religion to develop her themes. This is a reasoned integration and demonstration of the developing thought and clinical practice of an established Jungian analyst.
