by Robert and Janis Henderson
"Being interviewed by Robert Henderson is like spending an hour in analysis."-John Beebe, M.D., Jungian Analyst
Robert and Janis Henderson interview 12 leading Jungian analysts to provide a rich repository of information about the Jungian world, never before brought together in one place.
Many of the analysts interviewed had a personal acquaintance with C. G. Jung and played a seminal role in shaping Jungian psychology. The interviews span not only the broad sweep of the history of Jungian psychology from Zurich and beyond, but also the shifts in emphasis that have taken place in the practice of Jungian analysis over the years.
As these Jungian analysts sketch their personal stories for the outside world, they "de-mythologize" not just themselves and their profession, but Jung himself.
About the authors: Rev. Dr. Robert S. Henderson is a pastoral psychotherapist and Janis W. Henderson, M.A., is a psychotherapist. They live in Glastonbury, Connecticut, and have been students of Jungian psychology since 1969.
