      In new soil old roots regenerate as tender shoots emerge.

      This workshop will explore the psychological impact of cultural disruptions and losses that occur in the immigration process. Instruction and discussion will be facilitated by two Jungian analysts with first-hand bi-cultural experience, Chie Lee, originally from China, and Lynn Alicia Franco from Colombia. Through both clinical and personal perspectives, the Instructors will address how personal and cultural complexes entwine psychologically in the individual psyche. They will illuminate the way traumas-, incurred in the migratory journey are woven together with the strength and flexibility developed for survival and adaptation within the unfamiliar context of American culture. Both analysts will address how loss and disorientation presents and integrates creatively in the analytic relationship. They will elaborate on the theme that development of an appreciation for one’s ancestral history and an understanding of internalized dynamics related to core cultural values are integral to the individuation process.
