When the Body Speaks : The Archetypes in the Body, Paperback / softback Book

When the Body Speaks : The Archetypes in the Body Paperback / softback

Edited by Phyllis Blakemore


When the Body Speaks applies Jungian concepts and and theories to infant development to demonstrate how archetypal imagery formed in early life can permanently affect a person's psychology. Drawing from Mara Sidoli's rich clinical observations, the book shows how psychosomatic disturbances originate in the early stages of life through unregulated affects.

It links Jung's concepts of the self and the archetypes to the concepts of the primary self as conceptualized by Fordham, as well as incorporating the work of other psychoanalysts such as Bion and Klein.

Lucidly written, When the Body Speaks is an important book for professionals and students in the fields of child and adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
