Encountering the Liberal or Conservative Other: A Jungian Phenomenological Analysis of Individuation through Division and Conflict

Carly Larson Solome, clinical psychology doctoral candidate at Fielding Graduate University and recipient of the Kristine Mann Award for psychoanalytic research, presents the results of a phenomenological investigation of Liberals and Conservatives in conversation. The study results give voice to the lived experiences of people who respond to the extreme U.S. political divide by engaging with opposition. Study participants who attended depolarizing communication workshops described multi-dimensional aspects of tension and conflict (interpersonal, intrapersonal, and transpersonal) that occurred through dialogue with sociopolitically different others. This presentation will discuss themes, images, and first-person narratives that correspond with divisive current events as well as alchemical symbols and Jungian interpretations of the individuation process. Results will also illuminate how symbolic experiences of unresolvable opposites, especially when polarized between the persona (what is revealed) and the shadow (what is hidden), have destabilizing and healing effects on creative exploration of personal and collective change.
