The Psyche at Work: Workplace Applications of Jungian Analytical Psychology
How does the corporate world, heavily invested in patriarchal values, confront these changing times, in which other values are challenging long-held assumptions about power and structure? How can organizations acknowledge their unconscious and do something about it? What are their creative sources? What are the possibilities for transformation in the structures of traditional organizations, and how will such changes affect labor and management? The essays in this volume suggest that the theories and insights elaborated originally within the context of Jungian analysis and practice can address these kinds of questions in fruitful and creative ways.

In this volume, the work of analytical psychologists, organizational development consultants, and group relations theorists reflect on the contemporary enigma presiding over an organization's unconscious. Insights form a Jungian perspective on power structures, personal relations, organizational problems and business-building in the workplace.
