The Memoir of Tina Keller-Jenny

A Lifelong Confrontation with the Psychology of C.G. Jung

208 pages, ISBN 978-1-882670-85-7

Tina Keller-Jenny (1887-1985) was a Swiss physician and Jungian psychotherapist who, over the course of her long life, witnessed first-hand the development of Jungian psychology through her analyses with C. G. Jung and his closest associate, Toni Wolff. She wrote several autobiographical accounts, a compilation of which forms the basis of this fascinating and historically significant Memoir. Keller-Jenny sheds light on therapeutic techniques used in the early 20th century, such as active imagination, which she expanded to include work with the body in analysis. This approach has since become a major element in the field of dance/movement therapy and body-sensitive analysis.
