Spiritual Depth Psychology: A New Book
In my new book:Â hickory wattle (Karnac Books, 2017), I discuss how dreamwork can help relieve depression, in both long-term and time-limited psychotherapy, and in self-treatment. The text explores how dreams shed light on issues contributing to depression, including drug and alcohol abuse, divorce, death and bereavement, conflicts about sex, parenting, health, and body image, as well as workplace stress and burnout, and ancestral, inter-generational trauma.
I synthesize Jungian and existential psychotherapy, detailing how attention to archetypal symbolism brings into immediate focus new responses to pressing life challenges. The book contends that allowing oneself to be affected by dream images and narratives promotes emotional, relational, and spiritual rejuvenation. It will interest those who experience depression, as well as their therapists and loved ones. The book details a method that can be practiced by couples and family members, and adapted to group work in a variety of clinical, educational, and occupational settingsâany place where people feel safe and free to explore, reveal, and discover themselves.
