I’ll be presenting at the 2023 BAPT online conference on Friday 21st April. The session is called ‘Nelson Mandela and the Rainbow Nation’. Using extracts from the film Invictus, it will examine how Mandela developed the transcendent function in his personal life, and then used that knowledge to develop the transcendent function in South African society. This enabled Mandela to take South Africa from the brink of civil war to a zenith of racial unity. This video is a short trailer for the session.
On 15th May, I gave a presentation to the International Association of Jungian Studies on the Ukraine conflict. The recording does not include the discussion amongst participants, nor the multimedia (which were removed for copyright reasons). Nevertheless, the presentational part of the session is available at youtube:
I will be presenting at the British Association of Psychological Type (BAPT) 2022 conference on 8th April 2022 at 2pm (BST). This video is a short trailer in the BAPT youtube channel. The title of the session is ‘What exactly is normality anyway?’
I will be giving an online session for the Kent Psychotherapy Network (KPN), on 29th January 2022, 10:30am to noon GMT. It is open to anyone for £10 (KPN’s fee) and will not be recorded, due to using copyrighted material (under ‘fair use’ rules).
Since the 1990s, academic psychologists have put forward a number of MBTI criticisms. These have persisted and not been resolved. This year is the centenary celebration of Jung’s publication of Psychologische Typen. The British Association of Psychological Type (BAPT) therefore organised a symposium (1-3, 7-9 June 2021) to discuss these criticisms.
Whose side would Jung be on?
My presentation opened the symposium. It considered how Jung’s views related to the academic psychologists’ criticisms of the MBTI. It also compared the three main paradigms of academic psychology, Myers-Briggs typology, and Jungian/Post-Jungian theory (or analytical psychology). BAPT have published the recording (also below) on the their youtube channel. The presentation lasts just under an hour.
