The Talking Cure Bundle1000. THE TALKING CURE: Psychotherapy, Past, Present and Future

In The Talking Cure, an immensely readable and entertaining overview in three volumes, Jungian analyst Anthony Stevens describes how the major schools of psychodynamic theory grew out of the psychology of their charismatic founders and have subsequently turned into exclusive and mutually hostile rival “sects.” Stevens argues that the best hope for the future lies in research to determine the positive therapeutic ingredients that all methods have in common. This, combined with the kind of undogmatic, open-minded humanity advocated by C. G. Jung, could lead to the adoption of a new paradigm capable of transcending the differences between them—the paradigm adopted by the new breed of “evolutionary psychotherapists.”
