Physical Disability from a Wounded Healer’s Perspective


SKU: TR-wounded Categories: ,


Presented by Renata Ferraz Torres, M.D.

In this presentation, the archetype of the wounded healer will be discussed from personal, archetypal, and clinical perspectives.  Diagnosed at age eight with familial spastic paraplegia, a disease which resulted in a physical disability, Torres brings a unique perspective to her work as a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst.  Some of the topics to be addressed include the myth of the “neutral analyst”, the importance of diversity enabling the privilege of learning from differences, the “ableism” culture, and the necessity of embracing one’s unique characteristics in the process of individuation.  This lecture will provide not only a perspective on physical disability but also on the vulnerability that lies in every analyst.

This recording is missing part of the beginning of the lecture. As such, it is being made available at no cost.

Renata Ferraz Torres, M.D., is a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst in private practice in São Paulo, Brazil for over 20 years.  She is a teaching member of the Brazilian Society of Analytical Psychology (SBrPA), which is affiliated with the International Association for Analytical Psychology, and published two articles in their journal.
