Dr. Goodchild has been a student of C. G. Jung's for over 30 years. She has practiced as a Jungian psychotherapist during this time. She has trained at the Jungian Institutes of New York and Los Angeles and is a member of the Research and Training Center for Depth Psychology According to C. G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz in Switzerland.
Dr. Goodchild has published one book, Eros and Chaos: The Sacred Mysteries and Dark Shadows of Love (2001, 2008), and has recently completed two other books, The Songlines of the Soul: A New Vision for a New Century (Foreword by Thomas Moore), and The Songlines of the Soul: Mystical Cities and Healing Sanctuaries. Her introduction to an edited volume on the Gnostic Mary Magdalene for a book titled Mary of Magdala will appear this year in the journal Spring. Her current research interests are focused on Jung's later works and their intersection with the new emerging sciences such as quantum theory and consciousness.
