Exploring Our Jungian Racial Shadow: Brightening the Light
November 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Eurocentric roots of Jungian Psychology have strengthened in American soil but have remained exclusive in areas of growth. The racialized language pertaining to people of color considered as “Other” has cast a Shadow that continues to affect how we live together psychologically while practicing a Psychology birthed and languaged in homogeneity. This lecture focuses on the historical development of Jungian Psychology and racial othering and supports us being in conversation about racial issues specific to Jungian Psychology while members of a heterogeneous Collective.
