An Evening With...

Barbara Barski-Carrow

When a tragedy strikes, a person generally will feel shaken and unable to think clearly.  They may experience nightmares, flashbacks, an inability to sleep.  How do we interact with trauma survivors: what do we say; what should we do?  How do we help? 

This evening we focus on two basic facts: it is difficult for trauma victims to return to their families, communities, workplaces; it is also difficult for families, communities, and co-workers to know how to approach the trauma survivor.  Tonight we will discuss some common effects of trauma, and be introduced to Study Circles in small groups to learn methods that can help foster recovery.

Barbara Barski-Carrow, Ph.D., is a human resource consultant and educator, author of When Trauma Survivors Return to Work: Understanding Emotional Recovery, has contributed a chapter to Techniques of Grief Counseling, edited by Robert Neimeyer, and writes on topics related to trauma and loss.  She lectures and consults on workplace issues related to trauma.   She received her Masters degree in Organizational Behavior/Management from Georgetown and her doctorate in Human Resources and Adult Education from Virginia Tech.


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.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
