Stefan Gullatz and Matt Gildersleeve offer some background to their paper in the February 2018 edition and suggest some unmissable videos for anyone interested in the field.
To elaborate a little on the context of this paper: Matt Gildersleeve from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, approached me in 2016 with a suggestion to co-operate on a paper on Jung and Lacan. As we had both previously published in the same area - a bifocal view of Jungian and Lacanian theory - I soon warmed to the idea ...
We are happy to report back from the very successful ‘Who is my Jung?’ conference that was organised and hosted by the Association of Jungian Analysts to celebrate forty years since their foundation. Not only was the conference a success in itself - it was sold out, indeed oversubscribed - but there was a wealth of excellent papers, all given in a generous spirit which reflected AJA’s generous intention in bringing all five London Jungian training societies together. We are also very pleased that the papers will be published in a forthcoming Special Edition of this Journal.

One-Day Conference: 'Displacement - Contemporary Traumatic Experience'
November 9th 2019, 9.30am - 4.30pm, Friends House, London
This conference will explore the relationship between our selves and the environments we inhabit. Inner and outer worlds are generally considered through different disciplines and fields of knowledge, but the experience of refugees highlights the need to consider them simultaneously, in order to understand more clearly their deep mutual influence. This complex ecosystem of relationships with our non-human environment has a bearing on us all.
We will look at how, and in what ways, displacement can be considered traumatic and disrupt our mental lives; how this relates to, and can be applied to our work, not only with refugees, but also with others in our therapeutic practices, and in ourselves. We will explore the issues linked to this foundational matrix in relation to migrants, refugees, therapy, language, dreams, politics, family, relational and cultural values and an unrepresented psychic void that can be transmitted over the generations if not addressed.
We will be exploring this important issue with Monica Luci, Ali Zabarfi and Amanda Dowd - for more details click here. Please ‘save the date’ and join us for this important conference!
