"Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind."
A similar observation could be made of Jungian psychology and Freudian psychoanalysis. Whereas the psychoanalytic tradition excels at understanding the dynamics of human relationships, it is limited in its ability to aid the individual in finding meaning in life and spiritual connection. While Jungian thought probes deeply into the mysteries of the human soul, it is limited in helping us navigate the complex emotional dynamics of interpersonal relationships.
The split between Freud and Jung, which occurred 100 years ago, has endured. This is unfortunate, because each offers valuable clinical wisdom.
In this talk, Dr. David Thompson will offer an overview of the Jungian approach and discuss how it can be integrated with contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
