Despite two centuries of research, the human unconscious remains a vast, virtually uncharted territory in the field of psychology. Further understanding of the unconscious mind is crucial, since it is from this wellspring that the totality of human experience arises in all its complexity and power. Clinical psychology discovers the origins of behavioral disorders by examining historical and medical data, but the precise synthesis of these determinants is only now being discovered. In The Psychology of the Unconscious William L. Kelly presents an overview of the lives and works of four major contributors to our present knowledge of the unconscious: Anton Mesmer, Pierre Janet, Sigmund Freud, and Carl Gustav Jung. Kelly examines the fascinating careers of these giants as well as the major themes of their research, including the use of hypnosis to treat hysteria and the relation of the symbolism of dreams to unconscious forces. Revealing the all-too-human elements at work behind the myths, Kelly recounts the difficulties early psychotherapy had in making itself a respectable branch of science and the infighting that led finally to a personal and professional break between Freud and Jung. After presenting the major themes in the work of the early experimentalists, Kelly moves on to a discussion of important recent findings in five major areas of research into the unconscious: mind-body (psychosomatic) illnesses; sleep disorders; dream therapy; hypnosis; and parapsychology. While the legitimacy of such allegedly paranormal phenomena as clairvoyance, psychokinesis, and precognition has long been contested and remains controversial still, their study continues to fascinate modern researchers. Unique in its introductory yet thorough discussion and analysis of the history and development of theories of the unconscious, this highly readable volume provides an accessible synthesis of the psychology of the unconscious and suggests future developments. As the human species enters the twenty-first century, along what divergent paths on the "royal road" to the unconscious will psychology take us? Various researchers may offer different answers, but on one thing they all agree, given the earlier lessons learned from Mesmer, Janet, Freud, and Jung: a heightened knowledge of the unconscious can only mean an improved understanding of human behavior.

Treads a useful path between the nonsensical over-analysis and over-generalization that one tends to get from the more tabloid approach, and the dry academic stance that could rob the material of its creative potential... The authors are enthusiastic and creative enough to make this a useful book for a variety of professionals, producing concrete description for those who need this and ideas for others... it makes clear that there are structured and pragmatic ways of working with this material that can deepen insight and produce more creative use of the therapy setting... an enjoyable and useful read for a wide variety of professionals' - "Journal of Mental Health " This practical, eclectic guide points out that dreams are not the prerogative of psychoanalysts, and is the first to provide counsellors with a model and techniques for working with their clients' dreams and nightmares. Using case examples throughout, the authors demonstrate that, used with sensitivity, dreamwork can prove a fruitful therapeutic tool. The emphasis is on the fact that dreams are the creation of, and belong' to, the dreamer and that they offer a powerful means of access to an individual's emotional and creative life. Chapters describe objective methods of understanding and interpreting dream language and symbols, and vivid subjective methods by which clients can be encouraged to experience the emotional content of the dream in the counselling session. Different types of nightmare are defined and separate guidelines are outlined for working with and alleviating nightmare distress. Guidance is also given on how to deal with post-traumatic nightmares, night terrors and children's nightmares.

The first edition of this book was acclaimed as a practical, insightful and humane guide for professionals in mental health, social work and voluntary and government agencies who are concerned with the care of refugees and other victims of political and military violence. These professionals can develop feelings of irritation, disappointment and hopelessness when their work seems not to have the expected result. Successful counselling and therapy require empathy with such victims of traumatic events. But empathy must be based on, and combined with, expertise and knowledge that is both scientific and research-based, and focused on the special needs of these victims. This book is written from the first-hand experience of a world expert in this field, and provides A practical guide to clinical work with adult, child and adolescent victims A conceptual framework which places treatment in the context of the main therapeutic approaches A review of the research evidence that supports these methods of assessment and treatment Many clinical examples and a full consideration of the special problems of communication across cultures and language barriers Recognition of the special problems for professionals and volunteers dealing with these clients This new edition reflects the latest scientific and clinical work and knowledge, and will be essential for mental health professionals as well as for a wider readership of social, legal and administrative professionals who are concerned with the wellbeing of these victims. "A supremely accessible, comprehensive text on the effects of detention, torture, rape, exile, and culture shock, and how to understand and effectively help victims. It is also a vivid insight into traumatization and transgenerational suffering, and into transcultural and transtheoretical therapy. Harrowing yet timely, essential reading for frontline therapists and counsellors." —Colin Feltham, PhD, Sheffield Hallam University
