The major topics of Jungian psychology are presented in a manner that is clear, emotionally engaging, well illustrated and non-dogmatic. The areas covered include: the visible psyche: ego, persona, typology; the hidden psyche: self, shadow, unconscious, archetypes, instincts; becoming who we are: early development, gender; obstacles and helps to growth: complexes, projection, psychopathology; and helps from the psyche: psychic energy, self-regulation / compensation, symbol, synchronicity, creativity. "Jung and the Human Psyche" provides an original and imaginative introduction to Jung's work, and will appeal to students of Jungian psychology, those considering training in Jungian analysis, and anyone interested in Jungian psychology.
