Donald Kalsched is a Clinical Psychologist and Jungian Psychoanalyst in private practice in Brunswick Maine. He is a member of the Maine Jung Center in Brunswick, the C. G. Jung Institute of New England, and the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts where he regularly teaches and supervises candidates in training.

He is the author of many journal articles, book chapters, interviews, and two major books in the field of Depth Psychology: The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defences of the Personal Spirit (Routledge, 1996), and Trauma and the Soul: A Psycho-Spiritual Approach to Human Development and its Interruption (Routledge, 2013). Both have been translated into many languages.

Dr. Kalsched teaches and lectures nationally and internationally, pursuing his inter-disciplinary interest in early trauma and dissociation theory and its mytho-poetic manifestations in the mythic and religious iconography of many cultures.
