About the Author

Nora Swan-Foster, MA, LPC, ATR-BC, NCPsyA, is a Jungian Analyst and Jungian Art Therapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado. She is Board Certified and Registered Art Therapist and a senior training analyst with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA). Nora teaches at Naropa University, where she was on the faculty for several years. Her art therapy research and publications opened the door for using art therapy as early intervention with childbearing-related issues related to medical trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Nora is on the editorial board for the Journal of Analytical Psychology and her chapter "Jungian Art Therapy" was included in Judith Rubin's Approaches to Art Therapy. She continues to investigate the Jungian path of creativity through teaching, painting, dreams, and active imagination.


Jungian Art Therapy carefully lays out Jung's model of the psyche for the art therapist seeking to enrich their work through an integration of Jungian theory. Jungian analysts and psychotherapists will find a valuable introduction to the integration of expressive art therapy techniques with Jungian psychotherapy. Grounding theory in image, Swan-Foster effectively provides clinical examples throughout to forge a bridge between Analytical Psychology and art therapy. Well-conceived and actualized.

Mark Winborn, PhD, Jungian psychoanalyst and author of Deep Blues: Human Soundscapes for the Archetypal Journey and Shared Realities: Participation Mystique and Beyond. "This book actively imagines into the layers of transformation patiently waiting for those longing to awaken the innate forces of creative expression. Readers will feel gratitude for Swan-Foster's generosity to competently synthesize the alchemical strands of art therapy with Jungian studies." Michael Franklin, PhD, ATR-BC, Naropa University "Nora Swan-Foster's new book, Jungian Art Therapy, brings the concepts of Jungian thought combined with the principles of art therapy to the cutting edge. It will be appreciated by students, teachers and clinicians alike who are interested in learning how Jungian theory and art therapy together form a dynamic psychotherapeutic discipline. The book is timely in the field. A must read." Sondra Geller, Jungian Analyst, Art Therapist, Clinician, Lecturer "Nora Swan-Foster is a Jungian analyst, talented writer and a thoughtful clinician who has produced an excellent book summarizing analytical psychology as it relates to art therapy. This text will be especially helpful to new clinicians and students who will find her easy style and clear descriptions of theory well integrated with engaging case studies. This accessible volume will be essential reading in graduate training programs and analytic institutes. I will recommend it highly to my students."
Linda Carter, MSN, CS, Jungian Analyst, Chair Art and Psyche Working Group, Past US Editor for Journal of Analytical Psychology.
