Sharon Farber, PhD
will discuss her new book:
“Celebrating The Wounded Healer Psychotherapist: Pain, Post -Traumatic Growth, And Self-Disclosure”
We are pleased to welcome Sharon Farber, PhD to talk to us about the wounded healer psychotherapist, an archetype developed by Carl Jung who thought an illness of the soul could be the best possible training for a healer and wrote that only a wounded healer who had healed his own wounds could heal effectively. Dr. Farber contends that most psychotherapists are motivated to do this work because they suffered adverse experiences and often were helped to heal through their own psychotherapy. Dr. Farber believes this knowledge has been kept secret and thus generated a sense of shame. According to her, that we have been healed and experienced sufficient post-traumatic growth to help others is something to be celebrated.
Sharon Farber, PhD is in private practice in Hastings-On-Hudson, NY. She is the author of several papers and three books: When the Body Is the Target; Self Harm, Pain and Traumatic Attachments, Hungry for Ecstasy: Trauma, the Brain, and the Influence of the Sixties. Her blog for Psychology Today, The Mind- Body Connection can be found online at:
Location: 81 Valley Circle Fairfield, CT 06825
