Come explore, with three leading analysts, perplexing patient reports of Synchronicities.
A rising number of analysts are reporting an increasing frequency of coincidence prone patients in their practice. These seemingly inexplicable phenomena are often experienced with awe and a sense they may contain a coded message from some mysterious transcendent spiritual source. This workshop will describe various alternatives in explaining their nature and use in the clinical setting. Jung's theory, which has been the nearly unchallenged authority in this field for the past fifty four years, will be critically evaluated.
Gibbs Williams, Ph.D., Psychoanalyst and Training Supervisor, is our Presenter. He is the Author of Demystifying Meaningful Coincidences (Synchronicities): The Evolving Self, the Personal Unconscious, and the Creative Process. Gibbs will be signing his book.
"Gibbs Williams has struggled with awe-inspiring coincidences in his own life and combed the relevant literature to formulate a rational psychodynamic theory of synchronicity. This book is both a personal journey and a guide for psychotherapists to harness their patients' creative processes to liberate the sense of self from its traumatically imposed restrictions." -Frank M. Lachmann, PhD
