The experience of trauma carries the capacity to both dismantle a personality, while also creating conditions for great personal and collective achievements.
At least for the immediate future, war and those events that often shatter the individual such as: loss, incest, addictions, and other forms of violence, may remain part of the human condition. The fact that these have shaped human experience since the beginning of time, suggest their existence as ontological, archetypal entities, living on as deep structures of the psyche.
While we all hope and pray that our children, loved ones and humanity will not have to suffer the indignities of these ongoing abuses, we have to admit that each is a painful reminder of the harsh reality of life and trauma.
In this course, we have brought together many of the world leaders in the field of trauma, and Jungian Psychology to address the treatment and archetypal underpinnings of trauma.
Through faculty presentations, and small group discussions, we will work to advance our understanding and treatment of trauma and hopefully, to find ways to depotentiate the power and presence of evil and trauma within individual and collective experience.
