Jungian analysis is a type of talk therapy created by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung following his long collaboration with Sigmund Freud. The purpose of Jungian analysis is individuation, or achieving wholeness as a person. The process focuses on integrating the conscious and unconscious aspects of the mind to create balance, and uses personality analysis, dream analysis, and an understanding of the archetypes of the collective unconscious to do this. Jungian analysis is also called Jungian therapy, analytical psychology, or analytical therapy.
This is a revised, updated, and expanded edition of a classic work, a groundbreaking survey of the Jungian approach to therapy in its most important applications. The majority of the contributions have been completely rewritten or replaced, while the remainder have been thoroughly revised.
This volume has become known as perhaps the best introduction to Jung's work. In these two famous essays: "The Relations between the Ego and the Unconscious" and "On the Psychology of the Unconscious," he presented the essential core of his system.
