Review by:
Joseph Redfearn

It was particularly pleasant to read this collection of papers by Italian colleagues after the Rome Congress of 1977, and to meet them again in print. The book contains articles by Aite, Carotenuto, d’Alfonso, Favaci, Lo Cascio, Loriga, Maffei, Marcello Pignatelli and Michele Pignatelli. I cannot summarise each article separately, but for me there was a strong general impression of warmth and sensitivity and a feeling of basic sympathy of approach. Other readers would have their own choices, but I most particularly enjoyed Aite's masterly description of his sand-play technique and of the way ego and self, patient and therapist, past and future, all interrelate in the drama of the work. I found my own interest in the primal relationship echoed in the articles of Carotenuto and Maffei, and in the tone of the book as a whole. There is a heartfelt cry in Favaci's article, ‘Training analysis as a tool of repression’ with which one wholly sympathises, but there seems to be no resolution of this problem at present.

The difficulties in translating work of this sort have been met bravely and often amusingly, and the book deserves careful reading, coming as it does from one of the most creative groups of Jungian analysts of the present time.
