There has been an ongoing conversation in Australia for a number of years between practising analysts and the ‘Jungian’ academic community. The two domains share, in their very different ways, a preoccupation with depth psychoanalytic ideas and praxis. Our Conference and these Proceedings celebrates this companionship and explores similarities and differences. The application of psychoanalytical thinking to anthropology and indigenous issues complements its explication in both clinic and university settings.
All of the papers presented in this collection are evidence of a ‘passionate
encounter’ between a relational pair: analyst/patient; anthropologist/subject;
teacher/student; person and culture; one culture and another. This relational model being reflected in the organisation of both Conference and Proceedings around the notion of a conversation between clinic and academy: papers delivered by clinicians were responded to by academics and visa versa.
This unique collection offers an insight into applied Jungian thinking in the southern hemisphere
