Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hill offers a thought-provoking study on masculine and feminine psychology from a Jungian viewpoint. Jungians hold that development of the self occurs as one passes through the four archetypal patterns of static feminine, dynamic masculine, static masculine, and dynamic feminine. If one becomes fixated on one of the archetypes, problems ranging from passive aggression to psychoses can result. For the lay reader, Hill begins with a concise description of the dynamics of the Jungian archetypes and continues with patterns of normal and abnormal development and treatment. Later chapters on clinical supervision and an integrated model for depth psychology are aimed at the clinician. The book is extensively referenced and includes both case studies and archetypical examples from classical and modern times. Given the current interest in the psychology of men and women, this book will be useful to both academic and public libraries.-- Jennifer Amador, Central State Hosp . Medical Lib., Petersburg, Va.
