Exploring immigration from psychological, historical, clinical, and  mythical perspectives, this book considers the varied and complex  answers to questions of why people immigrate to entirely new places and  leave behind their familiar surroundings and culture.

Using  research reviews, extensive case material, and literary examples (such  as Virgil’s The Aeneid), Robert Tyminski’s work will deepen readers’  understanding of what is both unique and universal about migratory  experiences. He addresses the negative consequences of xenophobia, the  acculturation experiences of children compared to adults, the trauma and  psychological issues that arise when seeking refuge or relocating to a  new country, and the more recent implications of COVID-19 upon border  crossings. Tyminski also re-evaluates the term identity as a  psychological shorthand, suggesting that it can flatten our  understanding of human complexity and erase migrant and refugee life  stories and differences. As one of few books to investigate immigration  from a Jungian-oriented perspective, Robert Tyminski’s work offers a new  and broad perspective on the mental health issues related to  immigration.

This book will prove essential for clinicians  working with refugees and migrants, when in training and in practice, as  well as students and practitioners of psychoanalysis seeking to deepen  their understanding of migratory experiences.
