This is the first book to examine the unique ways in which gay men and lesbians make the journey toward the psychic wholeness and balance needed in every life--a process C. G. Jung called "individuation." Here eighteen prominent therapists and writers offer thought-provoking insights into the deep meaning of homosexuality. Contributions from: Robert A. Johnson, Christine Downing, Robert Bosnak, Joseph Henderson, John Beebe, Robert H. Hopcke, Howard Teich, Morgan Farley, Caroline T. Stevens, Will Roscoe, Karin Lofthus Carrington, Lyn Cowan, Scott Wirth, Suzy Naiberg, Donald Sandner, David J. Tacey, Eugene Monick, and Susan Griffin.
