I will approach AIDS as a series of dense cultural complexes\, all combining ancient roots with modern patterns\, some of which have reappeared in the COVID pandemic. The archetypal narrative of the experience of HIV/AIDS as it exists in the ego\, in the imagination\, in the body\, and in politics\, links the unapproachable intensity of early death tied to physical passion. The passionate body is a generating focus – the body that desires\, that is erotic – which is also the body that wants to live\, that battles and demonstrates and engages with contagion\, rot\, and disintegration. \nLearning Objectives \n\n\nDescribe the mental health impact on those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.\n\n\nGive an example of a cultural complex associated with illness\, infection\, and sexuality.\n\n\nDistinguish between complexes related to HIV/AIDS and those related to COVID.\n\n\nIdentify transference and countertransference in relation to the fear of death\, existential anxieties\, and individuation.\n\n\nPaul Attinello\, Ph.D.\,  is a Jungian analyst in private practice who has taught at Newcastle University\, the University of Hong Kong\, and UCLA. He received his Ph.D. from UCLA and diploma as an analyst from the C. G. Jung Institute in Zürich.
