Event Description

While transgenderism as a cultural phenomenon seems, at least in part, to be based on a collective taste for the sensational, its emergence represents a collective shift towards a new or more differentiated way of experiencing and expressing sex and gender.  This presentation will elucidate the differences between sex, gender, gender role and sexual orientation.  We will discuss Jungian concepts and themes and apply them to dreams and other clinical material in an effort to understand transgenderism from the point of view of Jungian depth psychology.  That is, we will look at gender and transgenderism from a symbolic perspective and explore the ways in which physical transition might serve psyche’s urge towards wholeness.  In applying a distinctly Jungian lens on this phenomenon, we ask what is the meaning of transgenderism and where is it leading both on the individual level and in culture as a whole?
