The Return of the Oppressed: The Birth of the Other and Collective Western Guilt

Speaker:  David Morgan

Freud stated: ‘When once the Apostle Paul had posited universal love between men as the foundation of his Christian community, extreme intolerance on the part of Christendom towards those who remained outside became the inevitable consequence – just as the dream of Germanic world dominion called for anti-Semitism as its complement.’ This tendency was described by the historian Norman Cohn as ‘those who seek to purify the world through the annihilation of some category of human beings imagined as agents of corruption and incarnations of evil.’  
 
Crucial here are those social processes that support denial of our nature and the splitting off of uncomfortable aspects of ourselves and locating them in others. The Nazi regime created a terror in the entire population of being superfluous and provided others who could then embody it. The discourse on immigrants, asylum seekers and scroungers follows a similar logic. We are all anxious about our place in the world and we all increasingly fear being surplus to requirements.
 
The migrant or indeed the poor or homeless threatens us where it hurts, in the fear that there is not enough to go round, global inequality and the ‘Hunger Games’ mentality lie at the heart of the anxiety that the other creates. The other serves as a perfect projective object and through them we can dispose of this unhappy insight.

The talk will include clinical material.  

David Howell Morgan is a Consultant Psychotherapist and Psychoanalyst, Training Analyst and Supervisor, member of the International Psychoanalytic Association committee on Humanitarian Organisations. He worked in the UK National Health Service. He lectures Internationally and nationally and is currently Chair of the Political Minds seminars & Frontier Psychoanalyst on UK radio.

The Bernard Zeitlyn Lecture

Born to love, driven to hate: the human paradox

Speaker: Dr Felicity de Zulueta

In my talk, based on attachment research, I will show how trauma or toxic stress in childhood, is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on the mind, brain and body  which  affects not only how we feel but also how we perceive the world and how we think.  In so doing I will cover the subject of Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma Informed Care which offer us a new  public health approach in relation to physical and mental health including current worrying levels of violence.

Dr Felicity de Zulueta is Emeritus Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Traumatic Studies at Kings College London as well as being a Group Analyst. She developed and headed both the Department of Psychotherapy at Charing Cross Hospital in 1984 and the Traumatic Stress Service in the Maudsley Hospital in 1996 which specialises in the treatment of people suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress disorder.
Her publications include  From Pain to Violence, The Traumatic Roots of Destructiveness (2nd updated edition published by John Wiley and Sons, 2006) and papers on trauma and bilingualism. Felicity de Zulueta is a founder member of WAVE and the International Attachment Network. Since 2012, she works as a free-lance consultant psychotherapist with a training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, systemic family therapy, group analysis, EMDR and Lifespan Integration

Satanic Error: William Blake’s insights for clinical practice and everyday life


Speaker:  Carol Leader

William Blake was profoundly impacted by the industrial revolution and railed against ‘Satanic Mills’ that represented for him an aspect of the human mind in a state of repetitive ‘Error’. Blake’s contributions concerning Satan offer a powerful experiential portal or ‘cipher’ into both a ‘mechanical’ mental state and liberation from it. His explorations concerning the inner life pre-date the work of Freud, Jung and later analytic writers. More recently McGilchrist (2012) in The Master and his Emissary adds powerfully to Blake’s insights with contemporary research relating to a dangerous over-valuation of left-brain, scientific processing in the western world coupled with a denigration of the profound relational and integrative qualities that right brain functions promote.
This fully illustrated talk is designed for clinicians and is also suitable for all with an interest in self-development, or in Blake. It will include further development of themes explored in Carol’s paper Evil, Imagination and the Unrepressed Unconscious, which won the 2014 British Journal of Psychotherapy’s Rozsika Parker Prize.
   
Carol Leader, a supervising Jungian analyst and senior psychoanalytic psychotherapist, previously worked extensively in theatre, TV and radio. A member of The Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy, she is in full-time private practice and leads workshops and seminars.

Ethnicity and Racism in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy:
Whose problem is it anyway?

Speaker:  Helen Morgan, Jungian Analyst

Historically the matter of an individual’s ethnicity, culture and the process of racialisation has largely been ignored in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Whilst most trainings have introduced seminars on the subject, it is rarely considered in the theoretical aspects of the trainings in an integrated and ordinary way, nor is it often discussed in clinical seminars and supervision. This colour-blind position fails to see or acknowledge difference, hence the white individual is able to avoid the shame and guilt involved in owning any racist thought. For the black trainee an important aspect of their identity and experience is not allowed expression, making the training experience a difficult and incomplete one. This talk suggests that this situation has implications, not only for potential black applicants and patients, but also for our professional organisations where this covert form of racism shields ourselves and our theories from a potentially creative and enlivening challenge.

Helen Morgan is a Fellow of the British Psychotherapy Foundation and a training analyst and supervisor for the Jungian Analytic Association within the BPF. She works mainly in private practice as an analyst and also supervises in both the individual and the group setting. Her background is in therapeutic communities both with adolescents and in adult mental health. She is interested in developing an understanding of racism from a psychoanalytic/Jungian analytic perspective and has written a number of papers on the subject. She is currently chair of the British Psychoanalytic Council.

Jung’s Red Book: Where did it come from and why did it matter ?

Speaker:  George Bright

The publication of Jung’s Red Book, Liber Novus, almost ten years ago, has challenged the Jungian professional world to revise the various ways in which we have received and developed Jung’s thought and psychotherapeutic approach. In this talk,  Liber Novus  will be put into the context of Jung’s life and work 1903 – 1928 as a way of assessing how contemporary students and practitioners of Jung’s legacy might reassess our understanding of Jung.

George Bright is a Supervising and Training Analyst of The Society of Analytical Psychology. He is also a founder of The Circle of Analytical Psychology, a group which offers a six-term course in London to study Jung’s Red Book, Liber Novus. He works in private practice in Kensington.

“Starving the Black Material in my Stomach”
On the Use of Dreams in the Healing Process of Eating Disorders

Speaker:  Yoram Inspector

The sufferers of Eating Disorders are caught in a concrete, mechanical and sterile world in which their self-esteem and worth become solely dependent on their body shape and weight. On the surface life is reduced to soulless repetitive rituals, calorie counting and compulsive weighing, yet, being attuned to the patients’ dreams in the process of psychotherapy might create the gateway to the vital psychic life that exists underneath the surface of the symptoms, allowing access to a dialogue with their deep relational wounds and traumas. I will try to demonstrate how the Jungian approach which believes in the compensatory function of the unconscious can be especially useful in these complex, life threatening disorders.

Yoram Inspector is a consultant psychiatrist and a Jungian analyst. He is a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology and The New Israeli Jungian Association. He has 25 years’ experience in treating Eating Disorders in various clinical settings. For the last 8 years he has been working full time in the NHS at the Psychological Medicine Unit of St Mark’s Hospital which provides psychotherapy for patients who suffer from various gastrointestinal diseases and disorders.
