Local notes

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.
