In this book, Jason Wright analyses William Blake’s Illustrations of the Book of Job and shows its relevance in clinical psychoanalysis and psychotherapy with groups and individuals, especially while working with patients who have experienced trauma and addiction. Wright offers sensitive guidance to practitioners dealing with client experiences of change through the lens of addiction, and offers useful insight to the lay reader. He studies each of Blake’s illustrations in depth and shows how they chart the breakdown of Job’s life into a state of despair. Twinning a clinical vignette with each plate, Wright shows how these depictions can be directly applied to contemporary analysis, therapy and addiction recovery. He also focuses on contemporary examples such as the impact of the 2005 London bombings, as well as the importance of community, collective experience and self-identity when seeking recovery. The book will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and mental health professionals working in addiction recovery, as well as those interested in the work of Blake and its continued importance in the present day.
Jason Wright is a transpersonal and psychoanalytic psychotherapist. For twelve years, he was Clinical Director and CEO for the CORE Trust holistic addictions charity, following a career as a manager and director in theatre. He has since founded Number 42, a group psychotherapy practice in London. We are delighted to welcome Jason to the AA Bookshop to celebrate the launch of his new publication over refreshments.
The book will be sold at a special price of £25 (RRP £29.99).
