Magee Ethics Workshop: Encountering the Unsettling Other in the Consulting Room

What happens when we encounter something difficult, repellent, or even frightening in our work with others? The Roman poet Terence famously wrote, “Nothing human is alien to me.” When we relate to others in their suffering, there are moments that challenge our values and upset our understanding of ourselves as ethical agents of healing. In this workshop, we will use Denis Villeneuve’s eloquent film Arrival (2016), along with small- and large-group discussion, to learn to navigate our encounters with what is alien in our clients and in ourselves. Participants do not need to have seen the film prior to attending the workshop. Click here to register through The Jung Center.
