This volume will be of enormous interest and value to the growing number of people qualified both in the established and the new training societies for analysts and therapists, or studying to enter them. Within it theory and practice are closely interwoven, demonstrating how theories and models emerge, both from the study of earlier pioneering publications and from day to day experience, and are tested time and time again in the process of a group of practitioners accepting them as viable. An impressive and creative blend of the characteristics which this profession demands of its practitioners is in evidence here, combining originality with passion for their subject and the flexibility required to develop their own pattern of thought.'In the practice of modern analytical psychology it has become of central importance to reorganise, analyse and interpret projections and introjections of many sorts, the patient's transference, the analyst's counter-transference, and the dialectical interaction between the two, which is descriptively termed transference/counter-transference. Transference and counter-transference evoke each other; the patient's gradual acceptance of the analysis of those processes and his growing consciousness of the way they influence his relationships are facilitated by the analyst who can successfully blend his knowledge of archetypal forces, images and symbols with his experience of developmental factors.'- Judith Hubback, from the Introduction.
