Encountering the Other:  The White Shadow


Karen Naifeh, Ph.D.

How do we who identify as White and unconsciously express attitudes, writings, actions that are offensive to the Other? There are embedded forms of racism and thereby oppression that members of the dominant group learn not to see, to keep in the shadows. What forces keep unconscious racial bias alive and active in our societies? One answer lies in a culture’s shadow. 


This presentation will utilize writings of Jung, and post-Jungians such as Kimbles, Singer, and Brewster, as well as examples from philosophy, relational psychoanalysis, film and literature that depict culture’s shadow. The relationship of culture’s shadow to Jung’s “geology” of the personality as diagrammed in one of his 1925 lectures will be explored, and the connection of culture’s shadow to archetypal evil and to the formation of negative cultural complexes. These explorations are directed toward new ways of understanding the creation and maintenance of the sense of Other in the psyche, furthering the work of bringing culture’s shadow into consciousness.   


Karen Naifeh, Ph.D., is the other co-chair of the ad hoc Committee on Diversity and Inclusivity and an analyst member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. She holds doctorate degrees in medical physiology and in clinical psychology. She teaches candidates in the GCJISF's analytic training program and clinic internship program, and supervises doctoral interns in the Institute Clinic. She is a clinical supervisor at the Women's Therapy Center in Berkeley.
