The Inner World of Trauma

This work is concerned with the psychoanalytic interpretation of trauma, with particular respect to the views of Carl Gustav Jung, the pioneering pschoanalyst, who focused on the role of childhood experiences in the development of a person's psyche. Donald E. Kalsched draws on his own clinical work to show the value of Jung's insights into the inner world of the psyche in treating patients, especially those suffering from multiple personality disorder and post-traumatic stress. At the same time he proposes some revisions to Jung's theories in response to the findings of researchers and clinicians approaching the problem from different theoretical perspectives such as object relations and self psychology.

Review:

Kalsched's work is highly relevant to the current debate regarding false memory syndrome, the healing of post-traumatic stress, and openings for spiritual emergence out of sometimes life-threatening spiritual emergencies. - Exceptional Human Experience One of the most outstanding and important contributions to the practice of Jungian analysis (and psychoanalysis altogether) that I have encountered in the last few years. -Mario Jacoby, C. G. Jung Institute, Switzerland
