Julie Bondanza

In this five-week course, we will read three novels and two plays that look at the complex, neuroses, and trauma as they are dramatized in literature. We will begin with Pilgrim by Timothy Findley, in which Jung is the main psychiatrist. This will be followed by Arthur Miller's After the Fall, in which parental complexes appear on the stage. Asylum, by Patrick McGrath, shows devastation brought by Eros with "murderous intent." Then we will read the play Blackbird by David Harrower, which is about the confrontation between a woman with sexual trauma and the perpetrator. Finally, we will read the novel, The Words to Say It by Maria Cardinale, which is, in fact, a novelization of her own psychoanalysis.

Julie Bondanza, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and a diplomate Jungian analyst who trained at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, where she was Director of Training, a job she also held with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts. She has taught extensively in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, as well as for various Jung societies across the country. Presently she serves the board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York and continues to serve as its program chair, a post she has held for many years. Dr. Bondanza practices in Takoma Park and lives in Washington, D.C.
