Jung Memorial Workshop

John Beebe

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.

John Beebe, a senior analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, is a psychiatrist who specializes in psychotherapy. He is the author of Integrity in Depth, co-author of The Presence of the Feminine in Film, and co-editor of The Question of Psychological Types. A Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, he has written about psychological types for numerous books and journals including Analytical Psychology: Contemporary Perspectives in Jungian Analysis, Jungian Analysis, Jungian Psychoanalysis, The Journal of Analytical Psychology, Jung Journal, Psychological Perspectives, and Theory & Psychology. Beebe’s eight-function, eight-archetype model of type is widely studied and applied in the field. In addition, he has spearheaded a Jungian typological approach to the analysis of film.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
