Eventbrite - Dreams in Preparation for Death with Millie Fortier, PhD

 

 

Dr. Tyminski will speak about various forms of male alienation that are seen clinically and culturally. One of the main areas for this to appear is in cyberspace, often through violent video games, but also in social media, cyberbullying, and extremist websites. Our discussion will highlight the risks of too much screen usage, and it will amplify an archetypal element of extreme male alienation that becomes preoccupied with destructive fantasies, frequently with apocalyptic themes. We will address how Jung's anima/animus theory squares with contemporary gender theories. This talk will refer to Dr. Tyminski's new book Male Alienation at the Crossroads of Identity, Culture and Cyberspace.

 

Robert Tyminskiis an adult and child analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and a past President (2014-16). He teaches in the Institute’s analytic training program, and he has taught at Pacifica Graduate School and at UCSF. He discusses some of his work with immigrants and refugees in his new book, just published by Routledge, Male Alienation at the Crossroads of Identity, Culture and Cyberspace. His previous book The Psychology of Theft and Loss: Stolen and Fleecedcame out in 2014. He is a 2016 winner of the Michael Fordham Prize from the Journal of Analytical Psychology.
