Starving the Black Material in My Stomach
Yoram Inspector The sufferers of Eating Disorders are caught in a concrete, mechanical and sterile world in which their self-esteem and worth become solely dependent on their body shape and weight. On the surface life is reduced to soulless repetitive rituals, calorie counting and compulsive weighing, yet, being attuned to the patients’ dreams in the process of psychotherapy might create the gateway to the vital psychic life that exists underneath the surface of the symptoms, allowing access to a dialogue with their deep relational wounds and traumas. I will try to demonstrate how the Jungian approach which believes in the compensatory function of the unconscious can be especially useful in these complex, life threatening disorders.Yoram Inspector is a consultant psychiatrist and a Jungian analyst. He is a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology and The Meyerowitz Stories.
He has 25 years’ experience in treating Eating Disorders in various clinical settings. For the last 8 years he has been working full time in the NHS at the Psychological Medicine Unit of St Mark’s Hospital which provides psychotherapy for patients who suffer from various gastrointestinal diseases and disorders.[The illustration is about the transformation of the Negredo, the “Black Material”, in alchemy into the white “Albedo” and then to the “Red” Robedo which symbolises the vitality of life. Yoram will present among other dreams also a series of dreams of an eating disorders patient in which this process happened.]

A Zoom event and virtual film discussion
“The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” (Director Noah Baumbach, 2017)
Christopher Hauke (SAP, JPA and CAP) and Ruth Williams (AJA and CAP)
This joint SAP and CAP film discussion series, is a film about a family but very different to other attempts at the genre; it is about being an adult, having children, learning to forgive one’s father and face his mortality, and much more besides. The “stories” style of presentation avoids comfortable familiarity and leaves the viewer with a messy, shattered vision.
We ask you to watch “The Meyerowitz Stories” on DVD or Netflix before we meet – either on that morning so it is fresh in your mind or earlier in the week before the 27th.
All registrants will be sent a Zoom invitation before the event day. We start. At 2pm (GMT) we will start the Zoom seminar with an introduction from Christopher Hauke (Chair of C.A.P.) and Ruth Williams. Then we will open the floor to all attendees who may wish to contribute. There will be a Zoom modifier who will be able to see your virtual “raised hands” and invite you to speak. There will also be the ongoing chat line which the chairs may also comment upon.
Christopher is the author of Visible Mind. Movies, Modernity and the Unconscious (2013, Routledge) and editor of Jung and Film. Post-Jungian Takes on the Moving Image (2001 Routledge); Jung and Film ll: The Return (2011, Routledge). Ruth is the author of C. G. Jung (The Basics) (2018)
