Anaclitic Depression and the Archetype of the Feminine

Saturday, October 15, 2022
10:00am – 3:00pm est

a daylong Zoom seminar led by
Janis M. Maxwell, PhD

Contact hours:  4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Major depression is the Number 1 psychological disorder in the western world.  It is growing in all age groups, in virtually every community, and the growth is seen mostly in the young, especially teens, and the elderly.  At the current rate of increase, it will be the most disabling condition in the world, not only in these age groups but in all ages.   Anaclitic depression is a term taken from developmental psychologists who describe what happens when a young child is emotionally separated from a mother or mother figure.

In this seminar, we will explore the possible meaning of this type of depression from a Jungian perspective.  What happens when an individual, a family, or society at large is deprived of a meaningful and emotional connection to the Feminine, specifically the archetypal Feminine as reflected in the Mother?   We will discuss the implications of being deprived of this archetypal field called “Mother” and explore ways to address it.

Learning Objectives:
The participants will be able to:

  1. Describe alternate views of depression and its source;
  2. Summarize the connection between the feminine aspect of the Self and depression;
  3. Explain the various ways of addressing depression;
  4. Describe the importance of emotional connection to a mother symbol.
