The Power of Words:  Racism and Our Collective Healing

The language that we use within ourselves as an aspect of the inner dialogue as well as external dialogue to our members of the collective carries a powerful energy and force that defines us from childhood.  The American collective with its multiplicity of ethnic groups have created and used language that has oftentimes been racially divisive, psychologically harmful and served as historical identifiers in ways that have supported racism. This lecture will explore these circumstances as aspects of American Jungian psychology and consider how we may engage in discussion of them for our collective Jungian healing.

Learning Objectives /Lecture

As a result of attending this lecture, participants will be able to:

1.  Identify three Jungian Psychology theories:  Shadow, Opposites and Complexes and their relationship to the Jungian concept of Other.

2.  Integrate new knowledge that supports the exploration of personal self-identified racial complexes.

3.  Recognize, label and discuss at least (3) American cultural complexes that have led to intergenerational Collective societal problems.


Saturday Nov 9 sponsored by JPA at Good Shepherd Center, Seattle


9:30 - 4:00 with a half hour lunch.  6 hours NASW CE


Temenos:  Racial Complexes, Dreaming in Black and White and the Transference

Learning Objectives:

Our workshop focus will center on areas of discussion in support of developing a deeper understanding and relationship, with ethnic differences in the clinical work.  We will  explore individual and cultural complexes pertaining to Jungian theory as well as within analytical practice.  This exploration is viewed within the context of historical depth psychology principles, and how a Eurocentric theory and practice can and has shown itself within American Jungian clinical work. The clinical setting as a sacred space of  psychological deepening regarding dream work, the racial complex and the Transference provides the structure of the day’s workshop.

As a result of attending this lecture, participants will be able to: 

1. Identify Ego, Shadow and Archetype within a dream state experience with ethnic contextual references

2. Learn the main characteristics of Jung’s Theory of Opposites and applicability to racial issues in the clinical setting

3. Increase ability to recognize ethnically influenced aspects and elements of the Countertransference.
