Dr. Ekstrom recently published a book on memory research and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Memory and Healing: Neurocognitive and Psychodynamic Perspectives on
How Patients and Psychotherapists Remember
.

London: Karnac Books. (April 2014)

 
 
 
This is undoubtedly one of the most important Jungian contributions to the growing literature which seeks to explore the many ways in which insights from neuroscience can enrich our understanding of clinical practice. Throughout the book, the importance of the memory in the analytic process is emphasized and explicated; not only the memories of the patient but also the vital contribution of the memory of the therapist.
— Margaret Wilkinson, SAP, London, in The Journal of Analytical Psychology, Vol 60, February 2015
