The Jung Society of Washington, the Library of Congress and AARP Foundation will bring together noted Jungian and non-Jungian experts from the U.S. and England to discuss C.G. Jung's specific and unique point of view about growth and development throughout the second half of life, and how Jungian concepts can be used to promote healthy, engaged, and vibrant aging among older adults.
The symposium will be moderated by Aryeh Maidenbaum, Ph.D., director of the New York Center for Jungian Studies. Lionel Corbett, M.D., professor and core faculty member of Pacifica Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara, CA., will deliver the plenary address in which he will discuss Jungian contributions to psychological development in later life. Two panels of experts will discuss the psychological and gerontological applications of these contributions.
A third panel will address the role of spirituality in the second half of life. The symposium is being underwritten by A.A.R.P. Foundation and is open to the public without charge. The Library of Congress will webcast the symposium and archive it on its website. Advanced registration is required. Because space is limited, early registration is advised. The symposium will be held in the Montpelier Room at the Library of Congress, James Madison Building.
