Healing the Narcissistic Wound

Presenter: Sarah Shelton, MS, LPC-S

Narcissism is currently a popular topic, inspiring articles that focus on the more antagonistic features of this character structure. This has often led to a caricatured view of the narcissist. Using the myth of Narcissus and Echo, as well as that of Demeter and Persephone, we will explore the traumatic origins of narcissism and the deep wounds at its heart. It has been said that just as hysteria was the predominant neurosis in the age of Jung and Freud, narcissism is the neurosis of our age. If this is so, it is in our best interest and perhaps is our moral duty to understand how this character structure operates in order to better understand it in ourselves and in the collective.

Sarah Shelton is a Licensed Counselor in private practice in New Orleans. She has studied with the New Orleans Jungian Seminar since 2013.

What’s Your Type? A Brief Introduction to Jungian Typology

Presenter: Thomas M. Welsh, PhD

Carl Jung first used psychological type in an attempt to understand the differences between himself and Freud, as well as with his patients. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is often used to help individuals determine their psychological type. We will introduce the concepts associated with psychological type and will also focus on the impact that type has on relationships, the choices people make, and successful adjustments over the life span.

Note: Attendees at the talk will get much more out of the lecture if they bring their type testing results with them. There are several online versions of the Myers-Briggs tests or other such similar psychological type tests readily available for free by searching: “free myers briggs test.” Having one’s MBTI results at the program will make the lecture more impactful.

Thomas Welsh is a Licensed Psychologist in Mississippi and Louisiana. He received his PhD in Counseling Psychology from Indiana State University and his Masters in Education from Boston University.

Archetypal Dimensions of Alcoholism and Addiction

Presenter: David E. Schoen, LCSW, MSSW

We will explore the archetypal dimensions of alcoholism and addiction using images and stories from myth, fairy tales, and religion to amplify the materials and to help understand the implications of the archetypal in a true psychological addiction--especially the part played by Archetypal Shadow/Archetypal Evil in the creation and sustaining of an addiction. Questions, comments, and discussion are encouraged.

Jungian Psychology and Analysis as Psycho-Spiritual Event, as Religious Occasion

Presenter: Terrill L. Gibson, PhD

In recent years there has been a drift in the philosophical envelope of Jungian analysis. This presentation suggests that the core, unique aspect of Jungian psychology and analysis in this age of increasing metric profession, psychology by the numbers, is its fundamental psycho-spiritual orientation, its essential anchoring in liminal realms. This multimedia presentation will use film and art to attempt a contribution toward this rehabilitation of craft, this re-visioning of Jungian psychology and analytic vocation as religious event, as sacramental occasion. A brief concluding aside will allude to the growing planetary dimensions of this psychology and craft, stressing the urgency of reconnecting to the anima mundi spirit so wounded at the core of contemporary individual and collective psyche.

Terrill Gibson is a Jungian analyst, Diplomate in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, and Approved Supervisor for the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. He practices individual and family therapy with Pastoral Therapy Associates in Tacoma. He lectures and writes widely on the basic theme of the integration of psychotherapy and spirituality.
