Beebe (lecture): Trauma and Psychological Creativity
Lecture: Friday, January 21, 2011, 7 to 9 p.m.
Good Shepherd Center, Room 202, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N., Seattle
One of the most remarkable capacities of the psyche is its ability to manage traumatic experiences. Taking as examples major innovative works of art from the his-tory of painting and film, Dr. Beebe will illustrate the strategies the psyche adopts when forced to manage its sense of violation and disillusionment through creativ-ity. He will then relate the solutions endorsed by artists in times of cataclysmic social upheaval, with the choices analytic patients sometimes are able to make when faced with overwhelming life events.
John Beebe, MD, is a psychiatrist based in San Francisco who has long specialized in Jungian psychotherapy, trained at and is now a senior analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
