Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture, Vol. 91

Nancy Cater & Patricia Reis, Co-Editors

This volume was inspired by When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice by American writer, naturalist, and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams. We are honored that Terry Tempest Williams agreed to be interviewed in this issue. Other contributors are writers, poets, teachers, analysts, educators, and theorists. Included are both clinical articles, as well as personal and more academic papers. While written in varying styles, the articles share similar themes, from the deeply personal to the cultural and historical, from the literary to the mythological and spiritual. The articles address the psychological issues that arise when women attempt to express themselves, the obstacles faced, the obstacles overcome (or not), and the creativity that may released.

Echoes of Silence
Confronting Cultural Trauma:

Jungian Approaches to Understanding and Healing

By Grażina Gudaitė and Murray Stein

Since the start of the twenty-first century, Jungian psychoanalysts around the world have turned their attention toward the impact of collective traumatic events on individuals and history. In this volume, Jungian psychoanalysts from Russia, Eastern Europe, Israel, Africa, and Asia join a number of others who have made recent important contributions to the growing literature on this subject. Some of the chapters are personal and bear witness to the authors' own experience with cultural trauma; others offer a more general, historical look at the effects of trauma on patients and on cultures as a whole. Questions of practical treatment both for individuals and cultures are addressed, touching on political action and on possibilities for raising collective consciousness of a traumatic past and its present and continuing actuality.
