Living and working in a world under threat: facing and dealing with destructiveness and hatred in the outside world and within our organisations and ourselves.
June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$50 – $75
Presented by Allan Shafer MA(Clin Psych), D Lit et Phil
How does the mind develop and how might its evolving internal organisation and dynamics be shaped by destructive forces in the outside world?
In this seminar Allan will explore the emerging unconscious and iterative relationship between the individual, the group and the world we inhabit.
Currently the world is a markedly destructive place: war, hate, climate destruction, rising fascism, government and corporate corruption, racism, religious extremism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, cancel culture, social media abuse… Destructiveness and hatred have traumatic consequences and in particular they promote divisiveness, anti-thinking, and totalitarian states of mind. Allan will focus on how organisational leadership and containment might facilitate thinking and may help individuals take up their organisational roles to manage destructiveness and hate.
