Jerry Ruhl, Jungian psychologist, teacher and author, will address how to handle experiences of tragic events (both personal and collective), suggest ways to provide self-care and assistance to others, and discuss how to be a help rather than a nuisance. We all encounter hassles (the car breaks, the plumbing leaks, we catch a cold) on a regular basis and generally manage to cope; catastrophes, however, often are beyond our coping skills. Experiences we cannot readily fix or control challenge us in fundamental ways, indelibly changing our lives—disrupting identity, career, relationships, meaning, hope for the future, our highest god image, and our personal narratives. Using lecture, discussion, and exercises, we will explore experiences of tragic events (both personal and collective), ways to provide self-care and assistance to others, and how to be a help rather than a nuisance. 4 CEs available for Dr. Ruhl's workshop | $25 CE Broker Course# 20-672044 CEs For Dr. Ruhl's events are an additional cost and paid separately to the Friendship Center for Aging Studies.
