Presentation Description:

This event is worth 2 NBCC Approved CE credits.

The current upheavals in the political arena, not only in the United States but also in other parts of the world, leave many of us questioning whether or not the practice of psychology generally, and more importantly how we practice specifically, should be affected. Does the psychotherapist bear any ethical responsibility with regard to responding to the unfolding events, and if so, at what level? How may we frame our reactions to such troubling political turmoil and conflict in the context of our daily encounters with the individuals and groups with whom we work?


In this presentation, we will begin to explore how disruptions and polarizations are a natural part of the process of change in the psychic life of both an individual as well as within a society. We will examine the ethical view of such conflicts from an analytic perspective and link some of the basic premises of analytic psychology to the handling of these. We will be reflecting upon the similarities occurring between external social conflicts, and internal psychic conflicts, and provide examples of each. An understanding from an analytic perspective will be forwarded as helpful in avoiding ethical pitfalls and establishing a more balanced and helpful framework to work through conflicted situations.



Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will learn the original significance of the concept of ethics as distinct from that which has evolved in contemporary society, and in particular, contemporary psychology and why this distinction is an important one.

2. Participants will understand the central role of image and creative process as framed by Analytic Psychology and why these elements matter to an ethics of the soul.

3. Participants will be able to recognize one common dynamic that ties together the broader social conflicts of our time to the discrete conflicts that we meet in the individuals with whom we work and how to adopt a genuinely psychological attitude towards such conflicted material.


IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THIS EVENT WILL BE A PROVIDED LUNCH FROM 12-1PM, AND THEN OUR ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING FROM 1-3PM. ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND.

MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO VOTE ON DVATA PROPOSED ISSUES.
