Event description

Description

This workshop will describe some of the psychological and social sources of religious fundamentalism. We will describe some of the difficulties experienced when working therapeutically with fundamentalists. We will discuss the relationship of fundamentalism to terrorism, the psychology and the psychodynamics of the terrorist and the terrorist leader, group processes within terrorist organizations, the appeal of terrorism to youth, and the archetypal notion of the Apocalypse.


Lionel Corbett, M.D. trained as a Jungian analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago 1978-1986; helped found a training program for Jungian analysts in Santa Fe, while carrying on a private practice and teaching psychiatry at the University of New Mexico.
