Instructor: Mary Ellen O’Hare-Lavin

This discussion will be an introduction to the two women, Sabina and Edith, who were analyzed by Jung and later became analysts themselves. They were both instrumental in helping Jung get his theories out into the world. In addition, we will explore the early and little known history of Jungian psychology here in Chicago.
