Colleagues, friends, all who are interested in analytical psychology, C. G. Jung's ideas.
On behalf of the members of the Lithuanian Association of Analytical Psychology, we ask you for help in publishing a book into Russian language. The publication, which psychological value is especially relevant in understanding the historical and current context both in Lithuania and in neighboring countries.
In 2016, Vilnius University Publishing House published Prof. Gražina Gudaitė's monograph "Relationship with Authority and Sense of Personal Power".
Here is how the book is presented by President of the Lithuanian Association of Analytical Psychology (LAPA) G. Rukšaitė:
"It is both a scientific monograph and an in - depth case study examining the collective and individual psychological path that individual experiences both in the process of his personal maturity and in the transition from an authoritarian system to a free, whole being.
The author reveals how the authoritarian system affects and distorts the relationship with authority, disrupts the development of personal power and authorship. Representing the theory of C.G. Jung's analytical psychology, the author analyzes this topic not only from a scientific, clinical psychology, but also from a cultural, symbolic perspective, illustrating how the process of psychotherapy reveals human growth and transformation through the analysis of dreams and other symbolic material. I think that this monograph could help to understand something more about ourselves, about our deep longing for transcendence, and about our current times. ”
A couple of years ago, our colleague Jelena Guseva came up with the idea of translating this book into Russian language so that it would reach a wider audience, especially those for whom the topic of authoritarianism and relations with authority is so important in dealing with external and internal tyrants, while strengthening freedom and democracy. The colleague took on the translation herself, although it was a big challenge for her as a psychologist, not a translator.
The translation and editing of the book was financed by our other colleague and student N. from Latvia with her own funds (3015 Eur). Lithuanian Association of Analytical Psychology (LAPA) decided to contribute 700 EUR to the publication of the book. The layout costs were covered by the author of the book.
Another EUR 1,000 would be needed for the book to be published and for shipping to Russian speaking collegues abroad. Therefore, we ask to contribute to our goal of deepening the psychological understanding of authority, freedom, and a sense of personal power. We will be very grateful for your support, financial and informational!
