Wandering between two worlds, one dead, The other powerless to be born … – (Matthew Arnold, 1885)
As individuals, we often find ourselves in in-between times, somewhere between a world we knew, and a world that has not yet emerged. These times are hours of crisis, disorientation, loss, and enormous anxiety. Similarly, cultures, eras, civilizations go through in-between times. Ours is such a moment in history. How can we recover our bearings, sustain dignity and integrity when things fall apart? What abides amid such discontinuity? Together we will reflect on what we may do to recover a sense of personal autonomy when our road map whirls from our grasp and leaves us confounded.
- Describe the current cultural crisis and upheaval in the US and the world, and how it contributes to a patient’s anxiety and stress;
- Describe how to differentiate patient’s symptomatic patterns from core defense mechanisms and areas of strength;
- Describe ways of helping patients re-frame their experience as a way of making their psychological symptoms more manageable.
James Hollis, Ph. D. is a Jungian Analyst in Washington, D.C., and author of Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times, and other books.
