The Last Renaissance:

Psychodynamics of  Individuation in Late Life

This presentation (paper*) strongly affirms the idea that the processes of psychic development and becoming (the “arc of the psyche/soul through time”) can unfold over an entire life span. While the physical body inevitably declines, psyche’s progress (the individuation process), despite a persistent cultural prejudice to the contrary, can continue essentially unabated with a constantly renewed invitation to discover new experiences of “rebirth” and renewal.

The paper includes literary and psychological insights to enlarge upon this theme and adds some clinical examples of critical change occurring late in life.

Date:    Friday, May 2nd, 2014 
Place:   The Academy House (Terrace Level)
            1420 Locust Street
            Philadelphia, PA 19102
1:00pm-5:00pm (Registration & Light Lunch at 12:30)

 Learning Objectives

  1. To describe a model of individual life as a series of stages with corresponding rites of passage and patterns of transformation.
  2. To focus on late stages of life and develop clinical awareness of the need to foster continuing change and development throughout life.
  3. To construct a coherent synthesis of Jungian psychological principles and general cultural attitudes toward late life that support the idea of a psychodynamic of continuous transformative development in the individual.
  4. To present clinical case material that supports the principle of continuous transformative development in the individual through late life.

*This paper was published as part of a Symposium on Aging and Individuation (Los Angeles Jung Institute, July, 2013) under the title: "The Last Renaissance: Individuation in the Ages 70-90" [Psychological Perspectives, Vol 56, Issue 2, 2013, pp. 173-183.]
