Apocalyptic Themes in Jungian Work with Alienated Boys and Men

January 16 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Virtual Virtual Event

We examine the role of alienation for boys, male adolescents and young men, and how it can shut down access to the inner world. This alienation often leads to encounters in life and in therapy where they feel unable to describe what happens inside them. They prefer to spend hours each day online rather than interacting with real people as cyberspace becomes an alternate container for their projections of distress. The manifestation of apocalyptic fantasies of destruction will be considered as an expression of pain, rage, and shame that preoccupy many boys and young men.
