Stanley Jackson has done it again. With Care of the Psyche, the distinguished Yale psychiatrist and historian has created another seminal work in the history of psychiatry, or, to use his preferred and less restrictive usage, "psychological healing." Indeed, the work is inclusive and involves delimiting the universal themes historically employed to aid those in psychic distress and thereby illustrate the connections, for example, between ancient healing rituals and contemporary analytic therapies.
