San Diego Friends of Jung Lecture
Dr. John Beebe, MD, is a Jungian analyst and psychologist who specializes in psychotherapy will present his lecture, "Constructing Cultural Attitudes Through Psychological Types." His eight-function, eight-archetype model of type is widely studied and applied in the field. He also spearheaded a Jungian typological approach to the analysis of film and co-authored The Presence of the Feminine in Film. In todays’s world, we no longer have the luxury to wait or set-aside our inner need to understand and relate to others. Carl Jung offered us the path to understanding others through typology. Multiple tests, such as Myers-Brigs, have been developed using portions of Jung’s psychological types. Using illustrative clips from recent and classic films, John Beebe explores these orientations toward what is offered already by our culture. Participants will take away a new way of observing and understanding themselves and others.
