The Neurobiology of Emotion
Jungian analysts whose training and work is concerned primarily with mind are nevertheless engaging with clients who of necessity bring their whole being to therapy. With the demise of the Cartesian split those of us whose training is to work with mind have to grapple with the, now urgent, question of how we work within the area of our speciality or competence yet taking into account as much as possible, the complex and sophisticated understanding of the three main elements, mind, brain and body, that constitute our basic humanity. In short we have to learn how to work with the whole person. Is it possible to use an approach that explores the whole being from the perspective of mind? I wish to explore something of the richness of the mind-brain-body relationship, a fuller understanding of which is emerging as a result of the burgeoning research, particularly into the neurobiology of emotion.
