Thursday, 16 March 7:00-9.15pm at the C.G. Jung Club London
Transformation of Innocence in the Psychotherapy of Early TraumaAn innocent core of the self is frequently encountered in the analytic treatment of early trauma and an aura of sacredness often surrounds it. Yet this same childlike innocence, when primitively defended in the trauma survivor, becomes malignant and turns into a victim/perpetrator dynamic which leads to what Jung called neurotic suffering as opposed to authentic suffering and transformation. In this lecture the speaker will explore this conundrum with both clinical and theoretical examples. £15 Booking not necessary.

Donald Kalsched will give a talk followed by questions on Navigating the Labyrinth of Affect and Defense: An Affect-Centered Approach to the Psychotherapy of Early Trauma.
Trauma causes an injury to the psyche/soma relationship that forecloses what Winnicott called “psycho-somatic indwelling.” The result is a poverty of emotional life, exacerbated by a system of dissociative defenses designed to keep the “too much” of traumatic affect from registering consciously.
The result is alexithymia and a form of emotional illiteracy that provides for survival at the cost of intimacy and true-self living. Jung described such a condition as either the “loss” of the soul or its possession by malevolent spirits.
In the psychotherapy of this condition there is a continual struggle between the forces of integration (love) with its longing for wholeness, and the forces of disintegration (hate) based on a generalized fear of affect and vulnerability. How we can help our trauma surviving patients, and ourselves, develop “affect competency” will be the focus of this talk.

Philip Kuhn, who is currently writing a biography of Ernest Jones's early medical career (1900-1918), will take, as the starting point for this presentation, his recently published book Psychoanalysis in Britain 1893-1913, histories and historiography (Lexington Books 2017). Gottfried Heuer will then briefly introduce his recently published study of the psychoanalyst/anarchist Otto Gross, Freud’s ‘Outstanding’ Colleague/Jung’s ‘Twin Brother’. The Suppressed Psychoanalytical and Political Significance of Otto Gross (Routledge 2017) whereupon the authors will then discuss some of those pressing contemporaneous issues raised by their respective revisionist histories. Copies of both books will be available at discounted prices.
Philip Kuhn, working as an independent scholar, has published a number of papers on Ernest Jones, including an important study of Jones's 1906 trial for indecently assaulting two 'mentally defective' girls whilst he was working as an LCC schools' medical inspector. Three recent papers were published, in quick succession, by the late John Forrester, in Psychoanalysis and History. The third being a companion piece to the 1906 trial, offers a detailed reassessment of Jones's enforced resignation, in late March 1908, from the West End (Children's) Hospital for Nervous Diseases. Kuhn, who has published a number of book length poems through Shearsman Books and itinerant press has also collaborated with Ruth von Zimmermann in the translation, from the German, of Gertrud Kolmar’s Welten / Worlds.
