James Kirsch (1901–1989) — Gilda Frantz
James Isaac Kirsch, M.D., died on March 17, 1989 at his home in Los Angeles. … He studied with C.G. Jung in the late 1920s, and was in continual touch with him until Dr. Jung's death in 1961. … The work of C.G. Jung was not a mere concept or theory to James Kirsch; it was a total commitment to the reality of the psyche, and it was his life. …
The Therapeutic Utilization of Countertransference — Warren Steinberg
The topic of countertransference is actually a subtopic of the idea of the “wounded healer.” While there is renewed interest in this idea, little appears in print or public discussion about the specific wounds the healer has to contend with and how they affect treatment. In addition, the psychological processes the analyst goes through in trying to derive meaning from his inner experiences need to be more fully elaborated. In discussing these topics, my goal is not revelation for the sake of revelation, but it is an attempt to stimulate further discussion on how we, as analysts, utilize our reactions for the therapeutic benefit of our patients. …

Uncursing the Dark: Restoring the Lost Feminine — Betty De Shong Meador
Paper presented at the National Conference of Jungian Analysts, “The Influence of American Culture on Analysis,” Chicago, September 1987.
I have taken the theme of this conference as an opportunity to examine our culture's strong bias against the dark. My pursuit rose out of a conviction that women are by their instinctual nature at home in the dark, that women's natural way of transformation out of an ordered, civilized society is down into the dark and that a female-based religion would include as a natural part of its worship the powers of the dark.
If my convictions have any truth in them, then women in our culture are separated from the pathways of their natural growth. Adapted to a religion of light and a culture which upholds light and reason, women are cut off from their roots and from their creative transformative energies which lie in the chaos and mystery of the dark. …
