She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Newcastle and her MAs from the Universities of London and Oxford.

Another recent book is C.G. Jung and the Humanities (2010), showing how Jung’s work is a response to the creative, psychological, spiritual, philosophical and ecological crises of our age. In 2012 her book, The Ecocritical Psyche: Literature, Complexity Evolution and Jung was published by Routledge, followed by Remembering Dionysus (2017) and Jungian Literary Criticism: the Essential Guide (2019). Particularly important is Susan’s exposition with Joel Weishaus in Jungian Arts-Based Research and the Nuclear Enchantment of New Mexico.
