Mythology and Clinical Practice

with Nathan Schwartz-Salant, PhD

Dr. Schwartz-Salant explores the importance of Mythology for understanding and containing psychic life within the analytic process. The myths of Pan, Dionysus, Gilgamesh, and Egyptian images of creation are examined in the context of transference/counter-transference dynamics and the creation of the containing environment. This episode is the first session of the series Mythology and Clinical Practice. It was recorded in 1991.

Note: The name of the author Dr. Schwartz-Salant mentions in the beginning is Sonu Shamdasani.

Nathan Schwartz-Salant, PhD is a Jungian analyst and author of Narcissism and Character Transformation and The Borderline Personality: Vision and Healing. He was also co-editor with Murray Stein of the Chiron Clinical Series.
