Professor Andrew Samuels

I saw my first client (a better word than ‘patient’) in 1972, so I have been in this field for 49 years. In 2021, I will be 72. I began as a very young man which has led me to question ‘the wisdom of age’, not only in my case! In this talk, I will describe the role of theatre and politics in my work as a Jungian analyst. In this field I am both an insider and an outsider, as I will explain. Both Jungian and, in a way, anti-Jungian. I will show how, in my case as with everyone, formative family experiences deeply influenced my thinking. The way the invitation was framed makes it impossible for me to avoid referring to my book Jung and the Post-Jungians (1985)/Jung e os Pós Junguianos (1989). At the heart of the talk is the creation of a ‘balance sheet’ for Jungian psychology, with columns for profits/strengths and losses/weaknesses. It may make for ugly listening. I will explain the title during the talk. 



Andrew Samuels is recognized internationally as one of the foremost political commentators working in the fields of analysis, psychotherapy and depth psychology. He is a pluralist and draws on a wide range of approaches to psyche, including post-Jungian, relational psychoanalytic and humanistic ideas. But he roots his work in people’s lived experience in their family and in society. Andrew is a Training Analyst of the Society of Analytical Psychology, in private practice in London, and was Professor of Analytical Psychology at the University of Essex. He was Chair of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and founded both Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility and the Analysis and Activism movement in the Jungian world. He works as a consultant with political leaders, parties and activist groups in several countries, including the United States. He also consults to Britain’s National Health Service. 

Andrew is a frequent visitor to Brasil and several of his books are published in Portuguese: Dicionário Crítico de Análise Junguiana(Editora Imago, 1988), Jung e os Pós Junguianos (1989, Editora Imago), A Psique Plural (1992, Editora Imago), A Psique Política (1995, Editora Imago), and Política no Divâ (2002, Editora Summus).

His many books in English have been translated into 21 languages, and include: Jung and the Post-Jungians (1985); A Critical Dictionary of Jungian Analysis (1986); The Father (1986); Psychopathology (1989); The Plural Psyche (1989); The Political Psyche(1993); Politics on the Couch (2001); Persons, Passions, Psychotherapy, Politics (2014); Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and Counselling: Appraisals and Reappraisals (edited with Del Loewenthal, 2014). His latest books are A New Therapy for Politics? (2015) and Analysis and Activism: Social and Political Contributions of Jungian Analysis (edited with Emilija Kiehl and Mark Saban, 2016). A number of his articles, lectures and videos are available on: www.andrewsamuels.com
