Review by:
George Bright

What factors influence psychotherapists in developing our concepts and methods? Specifically in this book, what were these influences for Jung? The author, who is both a practising analytical psychologist and an academic historian, researches from original archival material the lives and psychotherapies of two patients whom Jung treated between 1919 and 1924, thus within an important period for the development of his thought and practice. The author's aim is ‘… to offer additional information on a critical phase of Jung's development, namely, when he began to use the insights of his self-experimentation with patients and to teach them to collaborators’ (p. 6). By mid-1916 the basic text of Liber Novus was complete and from that year onwards Jung began to write and publish prolifically in the language of scientific psychology on a radically new approach to psychotherapeutics based on ideas derived from his experiences recounted in Liber Novus but without directly referencing his own experiences. The years during which these two women were patients, first of Maria Moltzer and then of Jung, were the years in which analytical psychology was born, both conceptually and as a new psychotherapeutic practice. The clinical material in this book, coupled with a knowledge of Jung's self-experimentation made possible by a reading of Liber Novus, provides the reader with binocular vision into how and why Jung developed the concepts and methods of the craft we have inherited from him.

The sisters discussed in this study are Mischa and Maggie Quarles van Ufford, young women from an affluent Dutch family who had suffered considerably from a catalogue of childhood difficulties and deprivations (ten examples are listed on pp. 175-76).
