On The Psychology of Pathology in Difficult Times

Three Case Reports

James Hollis, PH.D., Jungian Analyst and Author

January 23, 2021 – Saturday

By witnessing the struggles of others, we gain pointers, insights, even strategies to address our own difficulties. In this workshop, we will examine three reports from the trenches, the never-ending wins and losses in the battle to survive, even make sense of one’s life. We will visit T. S. Eliot’s J. Alfred Prufrock, Jon Stallworthy’s Letter from Berlin, and Sharon Olds’s I Go Back to May 1937, and learn from them what we can. In doing so, we will address seven questions that may help you make sense of your own life including, What are your patterns? What are your avoidances?… and more. When Jung asserted that we all need to know what supports us when nothing supports us, when we undertake the path that is right for us, we are never wholly alone, we are never without resources, and we are in the grip of something that cares for us.
