The author applies Jungian concepts and theories to infant development to demonstrate how archetypal imagery formed in early life can permanently affect a person's psychology. Drawing from Mara Sidoli's clinical observations, this book shows how psychosomatic disturbances originate in the early stages of life through unregulated affects. It links Jung's concepts of the self and the archetypes to concepts of the primary self, as well as incorporating the work of other psychoanalysts. Lucidly written, it should be of interest to professionals and students in the fields of child and adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
