This semester our readings will focus on family dynamics, specifically fathers and sons and mothers and daughters. We will start with A Jest of God by Margaret Lawrence. This book is also known as Rachel, Rachel , and there is a wonderful movie that uses that name. Then we will read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams, and finally we will end with the classic novel: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith.

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.


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 does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
