The Parental Image: Its Injury and Reconstruction

By: M. Esther Harding

$25.00

The effect of the parental image in the psyche of each individual has ever been the basis upon which we develop relationships with other people, with a vocation, and indeed with all realms of life. This much-loved classic of Jungian psychology explores the various stages of maturation and the challenges faced by anyone who seeks authentic independence. Dr. Harding describes in depth the task of each level of development as we venture into the world. Using the ancient Babylonian creation legend (the Enuma Elish) to illustrate the process, and relating it to modern dreams and case material, she makes it clear that the struggle to grow up has always been both difficult and liberating.

Description

Some things never change; and the effect of the parental image in the life of each individual has ever been the basis upon which we develop relationships with other people, with a vocation, and with the physical and spiritual realms of life. This image derives its deep resonance from a connection back through personal experience of the collective layer of the psyche and the history of human experience.

This book explores the various stages of maturation and the challenges faced by each person who seeks authentic independence. Adulthood is hard won, the work of heroes. Dr. Harding describes in depth the task of each level of development as we venture into the world and create a life. Using the ancient Babylonian creation legend (the Enuma Elish) to illustrate her overview of the process, and demonstrating this process with modern case material, the author makes it clear that this struggle has always been both necessary and liberating.

Inner City is pleased to offer a new edition of this much-loved classic of Jungian psychology.
