This thesis reviews C.G. Jung‟s psychological understanding of the Christian
myth, and explores the theory that the crucifixion event is a symbol for the process of individuation. This theoretical work uses a hermeneutic method of inquiry that considers the relationship between diverse viewpoints. Through a survey of contributions from depth psychology, this thesis considers how a critical examination of foundational theories and predominant myths can influence theory and practice. This work includes perspectives from the newly emerging fields of liberation theology and liberation psychology, and imagines how a perspective of liberation can enhance the depth psychological approach to psychotherapy, suffering, and healing.
