He who journeys to Hell also becomes Hell
                      C.G. Jung

It was Jung's  encounter with the darker aspects of the Psyche that stirred him to write these words.  Be it an experience of beauty, grace, and transcendence or one of terror and trauma,  one is forever changed  through an encounter with the ineffable.

     In this  episode, Dr Conforti will discuss the recent violent tragedy of yet another of our  "heroes"-  Oscar Pistorius.  This Olympian, and double amputee is revered by many as as a symbol and expression of the resilience of the human spirit.  But tradegy of yet another form has  emerged in his life, in the fatal shooting of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

 In this episode, Dr  Conforti will discuss the effects within the psyche of experiences of  trauma and  how these are  manifested and often dominate the individuals life. So now, another of our wounded ones, has killed- yet again, like Adam Lanza of New Town Ct, is accused of murdering yet another  of  the innocents.   

   This presentation will focus on the  psychic effects of   trauma  and their ongoing manifestations within the individuals life  So too he will speak about  the Patterns of Tragedy and their expression in ones life.

    We hope that you will join us for this show, where Dr. Conforti' will draw on his thirty (30) years of clinical experiences in the treatment  of severe trauma.
