I will describe my work with a long-term patient whose religious faith underwent a number of significant changes across the years of our work together. I will try to show how her faith functioned in her internal world at the beginning of our work, how it developed across time and especially how she viewed her faith when we stopped.

Title: “Mind as a Nonlinear Dynamic System and Wilfred Bion as a Paradigm-Shifter for Psychoanalysis”
This lecture will focus on the body as a theater of meaning and how meaning gets to be somaticized and possibly extracted from the body. Some argument will be made in favor of a skilled and detailed observation of the totality of the patient’s presentation in the analytic hour. This may enable clinician and patient to gain insight into the underlying psycho-somatic dramas, transference and countertransference being the medium in which unconscious meaning emerges.
“How do we interpret a fairy tale? —or stalk it, rather, because it is really like stalking a very evasive stag.” Marie-Louise von Franz, The Interpretation of Fairy Tales, p. 37
The very popular fairy tale discussion group continues January through May!
Please join us for a 5-week study and discussion of fairy tales. This educational series will be co-facilitated by Jungian analysts Suzan Rood Wilson, Stephanie Gierman and James Max Gossett.
