Up Against the Wall: Politics, Community, Psyche

October 14 - 15, 2017

The inherently intertwined relationship between the psyche and the polis, coupled with the urgent need for progressive action, demand that psychology become both politically conscious and socially engaged. This conference celebrates the thirty-year history of Pacifica’s Clinical Psychology program by continuing to advance a depth psychological orientation to the world. Explore the relationship of depth psychological theory and practice applied to the current political situation with internationally known Jungian analyst and political commentator Andrew Samuels in both a keynote address and workshop. Additional conference sessions feature Pacifica faculty, alumni, and graduate students addressing issues of social oppression, social liberation, psychological citizenship, and the collective imagination.
