The 2018 June Singer Memorial Lecture*

CEUs: 2

Instructor: Mary Ellen O’Hare-Lavin, PhD

Relying on Jung’s theory and use of mythology and story, we will see how archetypally stories explain the relevance of the “me too” movement.  Losing and then finding one’s voice has a healing effect on the human psyche both individually and collectively.  What are some of the stories we can use to help us understand the current exposure of unspoken power over someone and the danger of this misuse of power?

*June Singer (1920 – January 19, 2004) was an American analytical psychologist. She co-founded the Analytical Psychology Club of Chicago, which later became the Jung Institute of Chicago. Due to her commitment to Jung and making Depth Psychology accessible to everyone, the Center’s clinic is named after her and this lecture is dedicated to her memory.
