Event description
How are we to understand the collective event which has affected all of humanity over the past challenging times?

About this event

While scientists and the medical experts search for an effective panacea, and governments are caught up in rule-making to safeguard their citizens, the therapeutic community makes some effort to throw light on the psychological significance and consequences of the pandemic. The image of Lockdown is universally recognised, and mostly accepted. Its novel occurrence in collective experience requires a deeper insight in order to understand its effect on the psyche. From myth, fairy tale, poetry and film we are afforded images that create some order in what has become a somewhat chaotic and threatening world. Through the Jungian lens we may be enabled to gain some understanding of the negative effects of Lockdown as well as appreciating its potentially healing significance.

Jim Fitzgerald was born and raised in a small village in the south of Ireland. His academic background is in Ancient Classics and Byzantine Greek. After a career as a Primary school teacher in London, he trained as an analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich. He is a past chairman of The C. G. Jung Analytical Psychology Club, London and a founding member and past chairman of The Guild of Analytical Psychologists. He is also a Senior Member of The Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists. He has a private practice in London and has lectured widely.
