Colleen Hendrick commented on Robin Reynolds Barre's blog post From The Tuesday Journal - The Task of the Depth Psychologist
"I think this opens up a great discussion, Bonnie. I agree that when we judge we become part of the polarization, and I know that we must all take stands or become wishy washy - though our stands mustn't be rigid and habitual, but porous enough to…"

Ian Pitt commented on Robin Reynolds Barre's blog post From The Tuesday Journal - The Task of the Depth Psychologist
"It does seem that by judging others we perpetuate polarisation and demonisation, but such judgments are not the dead end they seem to be. We can make the mistake of disowning our judgments, and thus adding a tension within ourselves to the tension…"

Michael Harkins commented on Robin Reynolds Barre's blog post From The Tuesday Journal - The Task of the Depth Psychologist
"I thoroughly enjoyed your piece. The tension of the opposites is one of my favorite Jungian concepts. I just picked up "The Opposable Mind: How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative Thinking" because of this same reason. I work in a technical…"

Robin Reynolds Barre commented on Robin Reynolds Barre's blog post From The Tuesday Journal - The Task of the Depth Psychologist
"Thank you, Bonnie, for featuring this post and for your comments below. It *is* hard, isn't it? I have, for so long, justified my "Othering" by saying that those people over there are not like me because I am compassionate, a good listener, and…"

And thank you for the reminders, everyone, to stay close to the passion, the heart, the juice of the dissertation. I got stuck very early in the process - so frozen by my insecurities, feeling as if I could never…"

  • Hi Robin! I'm not quite sure if I can attach a file to this...but, if you send me your email I could send it to you. It was published in the AM:STARS journal: Adolescent Medicine: State of the Art Reviews in March 2009, Anxiety in Adolescents. I am pretty sure that it is also indexed on pubmed or medline. And welcome! Best ,Carol Rizzolo
  • Its all a work in progress, isn't it?--including ourselves! It's why I love Depth Psychology so much. Jung was onto something with the concept of individuation--now if only media and technology could keep up! :)
  • Hi Robin! Welcome to the Alliance. I love the way you describe your work as a depth psychologist on your home page. I think we need more of this kind of language to help those who are not familiar with the field to understand. Awesome! I look forward to having your voice in the Forum for everyone to hear.

    BTW, you may want to go back to your page and edit your URL for your site on the profile. It doesn't have the .com on the end, so when one clicks on it, it doesn't work. Most people will know they can just add it on, but it might be better to make it easy.

    All the best! See you on the site.

  • Welcome Robin,

    Hope you will find this site of interest. What program are you following at Pacifica?

    Ed

I want to write today about what it means to me to be a depth psychologist in today’s world. I read about and feel in my bones the polarization in our country: democrats v.republicans, liberals v. conservatives, religious fundamentalists v. “New Agers”, and the list goes on. What it essentially comes down to is “me v. Other.”Whoever we are and whereever we stand is the “me.” Whomever the other person is that stands in a different place in the world in such a…
