Cultural Attitudes Workshop
In this workshop, we’ll look at our cultural attitudes in depth and explore how they impact our lives and relationships. We’ll also look at the interplay between psychological type and cultural attitudes. Dr. Beebe will lead us in exploring the implications of the cultural attitudes for therapy. We’ll also explore whether it is possible or desirable to try to develop the attitudes that we do not naturally prefer and ask whether we should be working in parenting or therapy to foster the development of the cultural attitudes. Using case examples of his own as well as examples volunteered by participants, Dr. Beebe will demonstrate what it means to do psychotherapy employing each of the different cultural attitudes that Joseph Henderson identified. As in the Friday night lecture, we’ll use some additional film clips to learn to identify and respond to the cultural attitudes, appreciating their power and noting their limitations. NOTE: Introduction lecture is Friday, May 19th 7:30 - 10pm. Please see Friday events for more information or visit the website www.jungatlanta.com.
