JPEG Programme 2018-19
Working with Trauma: Being an outsider on the Inside
In this JPEG programme we will focus on Trauma and how to understand it from a broadly Jungian perspective. Trauma is a response to a generally violent event or a serious of events which occurs for individuals, groups and cultures. For the individual this can lead to dissociation, splitting and the creation of alternative personalities, addictions and a variety of more subtle defenses. For the group and cultures in general trauma can sit in the collective psyche as a historical event or experience and used as a way to understand and the explain the world which creates group cohesion as well as part of a national or cultural identity. A notion of the Other defines the sense of self, group and culture.
In a series of 10 Saturdays through 2018-19, we will use social dreaming, films, readings, art and clinical material to explore how the themes of trauma are experienced and represented.
