Jung and Searles is the first in-depth integration of the psychotherapeutic models of C.G. Jung and Harold F. Searles.
Combining Jung's theoretical depths with Searles' liberating approach to the analytic process, David Sedgwick bridges the rift between analytical psychology and psychoanalysis and achieves a new vision of psychotherapy.
Discussing personality theory, countertransference and the role and personality of the analyst, Jung and Searles will appeal to everyone interested in new paths in depth psychology. Clinicians of all persuasions will find it a thoughtful, humane approach to psychotherapy.
"This book is written primarily for Jungian psychologists (analytical psychologists) in a laudable and overdue attempt to integrate what is valuable from psychoanalysis into that field. In addition, the book could be of use to those interested in the broad influence of psychoanalysis and, more especially, to analysts with a transpersonal interest who wish to read something that will provoke thought. Sedgwick is to be commended for raising many issues of significance to those interested in both writers and in the history and growth of psychoanalytic and analytic psychology movements."
