Countertransference is a central topic in psychotherapy. However, there have been few extended studies of the process from a Jungian perspective.
The Wounded Healer breaks new ground in using detailed case histories of transference and countertransference to reveal the complexity of the analytic process. Tracing various Jungian viewpoints on the subject, David Sedgwick develops new, dynamic ideas about the nature of the therapist’s work.
The Wounded Healer will be particularly important for all clinicians and students interested n the struggles of the therapeutic process.
