HOME AND MIGRATIONS
Speaker: Cecile Buckenmeyer
HACP day Workshop
About the Workshop
What does ‘home’ mean for Psyche and what is Psyche’s response to movement and migration?
The purpose of this workshop is to deepen your understanding of relocation as a psychological event and to reflect on how to work with clients who have a complex relationship with ‘home’: migrants, expatriates, TCK (Third Culture Kids) and many other clients who have a history of not feeling ‘at home’.
During this one-day workshop, we will explore the archetypal field associated with ‘home’ and ‘migrations’ – the emotions and images that these experiences evoke within ourselves and collectively. We will speak about our relationship to physical places and the process of making a place a home. We will also reflect on the psychological meaning of ‘culture’ and on cultural identity.
I will use clinical examples and one detailed case presentation, but my approach is primarily to support self-awareness through experiential exercises, group sharing and one-to-one conversations.
About the Speaker
I am a Jungian analyst in private practice in Lancaster, UK. I have lived in France (where I was born), Japan, the USA and now the UK. I speak French, English and Japanese and regularly work in these languages. I worked as a cross-cultural consultant for 12 years before I started training at the C.G. Jung Institute in 2008. I wrote my Diploma thesis on the subject of “Culture, Place and Movement”. Many of the ideas developed in my thesis form the basis of Terre de Feu, a community of psychotherapists working with expatriates, migrants, international students and the people who support them (www.terredefeu.org).
