Romancing the Shadow: Illuminating the Dark Side of the Soul

The authors of this book, Connie Zwieg Ph.D and Steve Wolf Ph.D, are therapists who have gathered here personal stories of patients that illustrate how repressed feelings, motivations and thoughts autonomously erupt into our behavior or slither covertly into our decision making processes, determining the course our lives take. They show us how these influences affect our relationships with lovers, friends, family, and coworkers and how they shape our performance in the workplace, often limiting our success.

The authors show us how first to recognize the operation of these influences originating in our unconscious minds—in aspects of our selves we have rejected or events too painful to remember—and then how to probe our minds to gain understanding of them and finally control.

Rooted in the psychological theories of Carl Jung, this book shows us how we can find in the dark corners of the basement of our psyche, enormous power that we can put to use to better our lives.
