    1 thought on “Trauma and the Soul: A Psycho-Spiritual Approach to Human Development and Its Interruption

    1. As I read Donald Kalsched’s book Trauma and the Soul there were times I felt a deep resonance with my own recently published memoir. Kalsched’s analysis of dissociation with its need to save the split-off soul-child, his decisive stand around the spiritual core of what psychology names the unconscious, and his call which echoes that of C.G. Jung’s for a third world between the worlds of matter and spirit, a transcendent space, are masterfully delivered in this book.From a theoretical persp [...]

    2. I’m lucky enough never to have suffered what I would call a trauma, and I’m also not a carer of trauma sufferers, but I found this book very exciting and unique because of the narrative of what Kalsched calls the ‘self-care system’. This ‘system’ seems to offer a very different take on the usual Jungian representation of inner/outer worlds.I haven’t read a great deal of Jungian literature, but in my limited experience, the collective unconscious, or imagination, or fantasy, or what [...]

    3. Kalsched has produced an absolute masterpiece which I would highly recommend to any of you fascinated with psychology, spirituality and/or the resolution of trauma. Kalshed weaves together insights based on his training as a Jungian analyst, his deep understanding of object relations psychology and his familiarity with recent developments in neuroscience and body psychotherapies. He then relates beautifully narrated tales of healing from his therapy practice, weaving these together with classica [...]

    4. Incredible read. Jungian pshychoanalysis at its best. Read in Russian translation, beware of some spoilexcerpts to follow:Я бы сказал, что мое состояние ухудшалось и становилось отчаянным. Я заметил, как отводил глаза мой врач, как напряженно молчали мои родители, как у медсестер вдруг пропадал голос, когда они подходили ко мне. [...]

    5. One of the most amazing books I have ever read. Trauma & The Soul has fundamentally changed the way I think about myself, others and the human psyche.

    6. Profoundly rich exploration of trauma and dissociation that weaves Jungian thought with insights from classic psychoanalytic authors (Freud, Winnicott, Bion), as well as contemporary neuroscience (Siegel, Schore). In addition, Kalsched uses case material in dialogue with metaphor, literature and poetry in way that really makes the material come alive to me. His examination of Dante's Inferno and St. Exupery's Little Prince are especially poignant. When I read Kalsched, I know I am a Jungian.

    7. Kalsched does a fascinating job of explicating how as a result of psychological trauma, the soul's protective system, in an effort to shield from further pain, brings about additional suffering. The individual's vital, animating core that ordinarily links us to the divine, to each other, and to the "exquisite beauties of the natural and cultural world" becomes cut off. The author shares many stories about how that which has been broken relationally must be repaired relationally. "This calls for [...]

    8. Inspired and deeply helpful exploration of archetypal roots of trauma that helped me greatly in writing the trauma sections of "Love and the Mystery of Betrayal". The discussion of daimonic power of the perpetrator/victim looping is masterful and adds a thread of sanity when you are grappling with your own trauma imprinting.

    9. Lyrical and moving book combining Jungian and Object Relational approaches to spirituality and trauma.
