Psyche, Self and Soul is a many faceted exploration of the relationship of psychotherapy and spirituality. Introducing the term 'an everyday transcendence', Gargiulo studies the silent alone space of each individual and relates a psychoanalytic exploration to a spiritual journey. Calling on the thought of philosophers, theologians, scientists and analysts, the text gives a new framework for understanding psychoanalysis and spirituality grounded in the here and now as well as a psychoanalysis that respects mystery, justice and civility.

The clinical cases demonstrate how each patient's task must be understood as individualized, and consequently, how the analyst/therapist must creatively adapt clinical technique. D.W. Winnicott's thoughts are applied throughout the text and are given a comprehensive summary in the final chapters.

"What a delight! It is a rare treat indeed to find an analytictheorist who writes with such thoughtful purpose and convictionabout dark, complex, and soulful topics." (J Relig Health,2009)

"I would recommend this collection of essays to analysts, students of religious studies who are interested in psychoanalysisand anyone else ..." (International Journal ofPsychoanalysis, April 2006)
