Trauma from Jungian and Psychodrama Perspectives

Presented by: Dr David Russell and Annette Fisher

David Russell: What might a Jungian perspective contribute to working with trauma?

In relating to trauma, Carl Jung offered a psychodynamic psychology based largely on a mytho-poetic disposition: i.e., the life of the spirit/soul. Childhood trauma has been called soul murder as it is the experience of unbearable affect.  Therapy aims to integrate the inner life with outer life. A case study will be used to illustrate how such therapy is shaped. 

Annette Fisher: Working with Trauma

In this session we will explore the theory and practice of working with traumatised individuals. We will consider techniques that the clinician can use to assist with the recovery of a person how has experienced trauma which has resulted in PTSD.  This will be an experiential session using theory, examples from clinical practice, group discussion and enactments to demonstrate psychodramatic  techniques.
