Wimbledon Guild Counselling Training are very excited to be holding a very special webinar with Susan E. Schwartz Ph.D., Jungian analyst who will be joining us from Arizona USA.

The personal includes the political in Jungian analytical psychology with the concepts of the transference/countertransference, the shadow and healing from the transcendent function arising in the therapeutic process.

The question we are addressing is how othering processes undermine development and impede the formation of identity in personal, psychological and cultural aspects.

This presentation traces the reifying social conditions under which people lose their connections and become distanced.

There is a cost to modernity’s scripted shaping of compliant selves as seen in the story of a Hispanic man. His wanting acceptance clashes with the prejudice damaging his desire to freely express in both the mainstream and his inherited culture. He comes to therapy with depression and fears of family separation due to his wife’s possible deportation.

There will be time for Q&A built into the 1 hour webinar.
