Event Description

In Blake's image of the good and evil angels fighting for a "child" we see thedramatis personae of an archetypal defensive structure I have called the "self-care-system."  This dynamic structure which saves the soul at the expense of "possession by a Spirit" creates great difficulties in the psychotherapy of trauma survivors who often show a pathological attachment to their inner objects and intense ambivalence about the suffering necessary to come into being as whole persons. In this lecture we will explore this conundrum as it manifests in the transference, employing both clinical and mythological examples.

Donald Kalsched, Ph.D., is a Jungian psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist. He is a senior faculty member and supervisor with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts, and teaches and leads workshops nationally and internationally. His celebrated book, The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defenses of the Personal Spirit, explores the interface between contemporary psychoanalytic theory and Jungian theory as it relates to clinical work with survivors of early childhood trauma. His recent book, Trauma and the Soul: A Psycho-Spiritual Approach to Human Development and its Interruption, explores the mystical dimensions of clinical work with trauma-survivors.
