In recent years much attention has been given to the study and treatment of traumatized individuals in the clinical setting. But what of the communities that suffer monumental social problems in the face of our contemporary global epidemic of collective violence? How might traumatized communities heal the brokenness that trauma imposes upon social and cultural identity? This symposium views collective trauma throught the unique lens of Jungian pyschological theory and demonstrates how two distinguished Jungian practitioners work toward transformation of trauma outside the bounds of the consulting room.

A.M. Session (9 a.m. to noon). On the Art of Social Transformation: A Depth Psychology Perspective. Presenter: Dr. Eberhard Riedel, Jungian Analyst, Seattle, Washington. Stemming from his extensive work in the democratic Republic of the Congo, Dr. Riedel will demonstrate how "purposeful action" energizes communities to overcome the paralysis of trauma and effects long-term change.

P.M. Session (1:30 to 5 p.m.). The Message of Myth: Finding Meaning and Healing on the Journey. Presenter: Dr. G. Kwame Scruggs, Founder and Director of Alchemy, Akron, Ohio. Dr. Scruggs will speak of his twenty-year odyssey fostering the development of urban American youth through myth-telling. Participants will experience this unique approach through personal engagement with an ancient African myth.
