Chris Beach, J.D., is a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute - Zurich, where he trained both in Jungian analysis and in psychodrama. He has a private practice in Portland, ME, where he works with individuals and facilitates dream groups. He offers courses on Jung's life and ideas, dream interpretation, active imagination, psychological type, and ethics. He is currently writing a book on psychological type, looking carefully at each type's eight functions from a depth perspective.

When he was younger, Chris helped build and head a secondary school in western Kenya, and then later served as an assistant attorney general in Maine, covering health care law. He was introduced to the eight-fold model of psychological type in 1991 when John Beebe lectured at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich. At that time, Chris had three dreams about the model. Since then he has used it extensively in his analytic and group practices.

Personality Type in Depth was created in 2010 by Carol Shumate and Mark Hunziker to publish scholarship that bridges the gap between psychological type and depth psychology. In 2017, Hunziker introduced the term depth typology for this field of study, which explores the interaction of the conscious and unconscious aspects of psychological type, as conceived of by C. G. Jung. Articles undergo rigorous review and are edited by professional editors and writers. In keeping with its educational mission, subscription is free, and all issues are accessible to the public online.
