Depth Psychology, Suicide, Society and the Soul. The Role of Art Therapies and the Humanities in Trauma: A Jungian Perspective

Christopher Wilkes, M.D.
presented by C.G. Jung Foundation of Ontario

The WHO Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020 highlights that the global burden of disease for mental health and substance use disorders is 13% and costs about 16 billion US dollars annually. Depression accounts for 4% of this burden and is responsible for the largest cause of disability worldwide. In Canada despite a huge increase in anti-depressant use, there is no evidence that the impact of depression is decreasing. So there is an urgent need to better access for psychological treatments.

But as we live in a busy, extroverted thinking world, most of our interventions for depression are cognitively based talking therapies, CBT, IPT and groups. This minimizes the fact that we are individuals who think, feel, experience bodily sensations and have intuition. Consequently we minimize the contribution of the arts and the humanities. So how do we bring the magical world of childhood into adulthood or how do we live a symbolic life?
Art work, myths and religion link the world of the ego with the world of the transpersonal, numinous experience of the self. C.G. Jung's partial answer to exploring this connection was to hold the tension between the opposites as this will lead to a symbol, 'a living third thing' which is intermediate between the mystery of life and the ego's life struggles. In this lecture, we’ll consider Jung’s approach to depth psychology, which promotes our indwelling by reconnecting body with mental imagery and the aspects of experience that give us a subjective sense of connection with both aliveness and meaning.
