Reviews and Endorsements

Mark Winborn’s highly readable book fills a critical gap in Jungian writing on the practice of analysis. His account of the function of interpretation in Jungian analysis is both comprehensive and sensitive to the subtle nuances of clinical dialogue. He covers the topic thoroughly and adds original insights based on his extensive clinical experience. This work is destined to become one of the basic texts for training contemporary Jungian psychoanalysts.
Murray Stein, Ph.D., author of Jungian Psychoanalysis, Jung’s Map of the Soul and Transformation; former President of the International Association for Analytical Psychology

This comprehensive exploration of mainstream Jungian and Freudian perspectives on the place of interpretation in the therapeutic process offers readers of all analytic schools and levels of experience a comprehensive explication of the transformational role of interpretation in analytic therapy. Winborn more than fulfils his goal of "blending the deep understanding of archetype, symbol and metaphor from the Jungian tradition with competence in psychoanalytic technique ... creating a powerful therapeutic amalgam.
Howard B. Levine, faculty for the Psychoanalytic Institute of New England East and the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis; author and editor of many psychoanalytic works

Mark Winborn must be congratulated for his achievement in examining and reappraising the role of interpretation in Jungian analysis and thus addressing a lamentable lacuna in the field. It is no dry study, but a generous, rich, robust, and immensely practical book, taking us to the improvisational heart of the interpretive moment. Its scope is comprehensive and, as well as being thorough and well-referenced, it interrogates the foundations of analytic practice. It will serve as an essential resource for many years to come.
Marcus West, UK Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Analytical Psychology; author of Into the Darkest Places

This is a landmark contribution to the field of analytical psychology – the first book solely devoted to the techne (art and craft) of interpretation. Mark Winborn has skillfully integrated psychoanalytic thinking with a Jungian approach to produce a thorough, detailed and engaging opus deeply grounded in clinical practice. It will be invaluable to Jungian trainees across the world while offering valuable clarification and refreshment to even the most experienced clinicians.
Warren Colman, former UK Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Analytical Psychology; author of Act and Image
