This book offers Jungian perspectives on social constructions of gender difference and explores how these feed into adult ways of relating within male-female relationships. Phil Goss places this discussion within an archetypal context drawing on the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk to consider the deep tension in western culture between the transcendent masculine and the immanent feminine.

Offering both developmental and socio-cultural frameworks, areas of discussion include:

* the use of story and myth to understand gender

* Jungian and post-Jungian approaches: updating anima/animus

* working clinically with men, and with women

* the developmental pathways of gender difference

* power relations between men and women in the home

Men, Women and Relationships, a Post-Jungian Approach will be a valuable resource for all those with an interest in analytical psychology including psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and counsellors, as well as those in the broader fields of social work and education and with an interest in gender difference and identity.
