W-02 The Future of Analytical Psychology and the Future of the World
Initially held on February 25, 2012
A Global Web Based Seminar
Presented by the C.G. Jung Institute on San Fransisco in conjunction with the Asheville Jung Center
Presenters: Thomas Singer, MD, & Craig San Roque, PHD
It is reasonable to wonder about the future of analytical psychology. Will it remain relevant in the coming decades? In this workshop we will reframe the question and ask, what is the future of the world, and what role might analytical psychology play in that future?These questions are vitally important for all clinicians who make Depth Psychology a part of their practice, and for all individuals who view our human environment through an analytical lens. If Cormac McCarthy is correct in his brilliant novels, The Road or No Country for Old Men,there isn’t much of a future for our world or for analytical psychology. Apocalyptic scenarios color the cultural landscape-global warming and environmental catastrophe loom. There is an increasing division between “haves” and “have nots,” between North and South, and East and West. Unfortunately, Analytical Psychology might be forced to sit helplessly on the sidelines as our world comes undone. This is a possible scenario that we must take seriously. How does culture affect the practice of Analytical Psychology and does Analytical Psychology affect modern culture?In this workshop we will explore whether or not Analytical Psychology has anything to offer the world at large. Should Analytical Psychology be confined to the consulting room, a balm only for individuals in distress? Or ought Analytical Psychology be concerned with more than the psychological depth of the individuation process? What is the applicability of analytical theory and practice today-and tomorrow?
We are very excited to offer this web based seminar originating from the C.J. Jung Institute of San Francisco, one of the premier Jungian Institutes in the world. This partnership will bring many fascinating topics to a wider world audience and hopefully create a wonderful synergy in our community.
