1) David Barton, Ph.D. Associate Professor Northern New Mexico College

I am currently an Associate Director of Humanities at Northern New Mexico College, where I also serve as the director of an interdisciplinary program between the psychology, humanities, and Native American Studies programs. This includes a B.A. degree in psychology that focuses on humanistic and depth traditions. Northern New Mexico College is a Native American serving institution (about 12 percent of our students are American Indian); as a result I have focused a great deal of energy on collaborations with Native American scholars who have an interest in Jung, as well as parallels between Analytical Psychology and what some (such as Vine Deloria) refer to as Native American philosophy.

As a humanities scholar, with a background in the study of myth and religion, I have a long-standing interest in the work of C.G. Jung. I currently sit on the editorial board of Spring Journal and served as co-editor for the Spring Journal issue on “Politics and the American Soul” (Spring 78, from 2007). I have also served on the board of Pilgrimage Journal, which focuses on issues of spirit and place, and am the founding editor and publisher of The Salt Journal and the founder of the Salt Institute (both now defunct). The Salt Journal was a national magazine, with subscribers in all 50 states and several foreign countries, that focused on the intersections of myth, culture, psychology, and religion. The magazine published such writers as Robert Romanyshyn, James Hillman, Christine Downing, Dennis Slattery, and Linda Leonard.

Currently I am finishing a biography of Vaclav Havel that has involved research at the Vaclav Havel Library in Prague, the Columbia Rare Books Library, and the Hoover Institute at Stanford, as well as conducting dozens of interviews with friends, colleagues, and family members of Mr. Havel. I am also involved with the Santa Fe Group, and a member of a research team (one half of the members being Native American) investigating the implications of the work of Jerome Bernstein and Vine Deloria. Part of the work is to look at building constructive bridges between Native American studies and Jungian psychology.

2) Liz Brodersen Ph.D: Biographical Details

I am a Jungian analyst (AGAP; IAAP) in private practice in Frankfurt. I was born in South Wales, UK and obtained a BA (combined honours) in History and American Studies at Birmingham University, UK and a MSc in Social Administration and Social Work Studies at the London School of Economics, UK. I worked for three years as a social worker in S.E. London and Edinburgh, Scotland, dealing with cases of child abuse, unsupported mothers and intergenerational cycles of poverty and other aspects of socio-economic deprivation. I married in 1975 and moved to Germany in 1977 where I brought up two sons, born 1980 and 1986. In 1978, I took over and ran a small independently owned English language book-shop in Frankfurt with which I am still involved today. In 1999, I began my training at the C.G. Jung Institute, Küsnacht, Zürich, and qualified as a Jungian analyst in February 2008. In June 2014, I received a doctorate in Psychoanalytic Studies from Essex University, UK. I am at present an accredited analyst, teacher and lecturer at C.G. Jung Institute, Küsnacht, Zürich.

I joined IAJS in 2008 and since 2011 a current member of the executive committee of IAJS. In September 2012, I published a paper: ‘In the nature of twins: a study of the archetypal realm of universal duality, opposition and imitation between the ‘first’ and ‘other(s)’ in creation myths’ in International Journal of Jungian Studies, Vol. 4. During my time on the EC, I co-organized on-line seminars on dreams, ‘shadow’ phenomenology and myths and fairy tales. In 2014, I recently co-chaired an IAJS conference in Phoenix, Arizona, which focused on the role indigenous people play world-wide in relation to the creative, symbolic concept of ‘rebirth and renewal’ cross-culturally within Jungian studies. I am currently involved with publishing the papers that have developed from the conference presentations.

Being reelected for a second term on IAJS EC would give me renewed opportunity to expand upon Jungian interdisciplinary concepts, clinical theory and practice, through on-line seminars, workshops and conferences. I enjoy team work, developing new research ideas with others and see these bear fruit. Coming from an interdisciplinary academic background, both in the arts and social sciences, living and practicing as a Jungian accredited analyst in two countries not of my origin (Germany and Switzerland) all give me access to and an empirical understanding of cross-cultural positioning which I can bring into IAJS dialogue.

3) Marybeth Carter: Biographical Details

Marybeth Carter, PhD, is a therapist with offices in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California. She graduated with a doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and has a B.A. with honors from Indiana University-Bloomington in Religious Studies. Marybeth is a candidate in analyst training at the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. Her research has focused on Jungian theory about spontaneous visions and she has presented at the American Psychological Association conference Honolulu, the IAJS Regional Conference in London, the International Association for the Study of Dreams Conference in Virginia Beach; and the C. G. Jung Institute of Los !ngeles’ Public Program.

Marybeth is a Lecturer for the Center for Domestic Violence housed in the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado-Denver and teaches, “The Psychology of Gender and Interpersonal Violence.” She has authored book chapters, including “Rape and Sexual !ssault” published in The Encyclopedia of Global Social Issues.

Positions held include past president of the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence and the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault as well as being the former executive director of the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the Rape Crisis Center of Contra Costa and Marin, California in addition to serving on numerous national task forces and committees.

She has extensive experience in policy development, advocacy for social change, and nonprofit administration. She is also experienced in coordinating distance-based nonprofit organizational operations by using technology for meetings, trainings, and list-serves, including the creation of PreventConnect.org, a national online project dedicated to the primary prevention of sexual assault u0026amp; domestic violence.

Marybeth served on the IAJS conference planning committee for the 2014 conference held in Phoenix, Arizona.

After several years of being a member of IAJS and recently serving on the conference planning committee, I am very interested in serving on the Executive Committee to further the mission and goals of IAJS. In particular, I am interested in sharing my nonprofit organizational skills to further the growth and organizational oversight of IAJS. Additionally, I am interested in helping to conceptualize the expansion of IAJS to be accessible to a greater number of scholars and practitioners in addition to continuing the currently successful list serve and conference programming formats.

4) Victoria C. Drake, MA/PhD: Biographical Details

Joining the Executive Committee would be a great honor as I seek to remain connected to the national/international Jungian community at large in a meaningful capacity. I would plan to attend as many conferences and meetings as possible, embodying an active, informed role on the committee. Currently, I am applying for various part-time adjuncts teaching positions in Jungian psychology and working on transforming my PhD into a book. As such, it is vital to me to continue learning, expanding and deepening my ongoing Jungian education by serving in new multi-dimensional ways, such as The Executive Committee.

5) Peter T. Dunlap: Biographical Details

I’m interested in joining the executive committee in order to support the ongoing development of Jungian studies. I’m particularly interested in contributing to efforts to integrate the intellectual significance of Jung’s analytical psychology with its social and ethical implications for our relationships, communications, and within our organizations. Between its intellectual, clinical, social, and ethical meanings, Jung’s work provides opportunities to support the emergence of new consciousness—individual and collective. And, such work begins in the efforts of our volunteer organizations.

I am a psychologist working in private and political practice. I have work for 23 years in my private practice using an emotion-centered approach to psychotherapy to support individuals, couples, and families to establish the truth, caring, and accountability practices needed to create loving and learning relationships. More recently, I have been training in a systems-centered approach (SCT) to group therapy that supports individuals to learn how to attend to the rhythms of group development, thus gaining clarity regarding the unique contribution they have to make to groups and to their communities.

I was raised in a political family, my great-great-grandfather founding the town of Napa California and was the first of four generations of Coombs/Dunlaps to represent the Napa Valley in the California state Senate, ending in the late 1970’s with my father John Dunlap. Combining the politics that is in my bones with my psychological training, I have worked in my political practice for 15 years, focusing on the development of a public emotional intelligence for community groups and community leaders.

As a writer I have published primarily in the area of Jungian studies. My book, Awakening our faith in the future: The advent of psychological liberalism (Routledge, 2008), links political theory with theories of human development, affect functioning in individuals and groups (contemporary and historical), and Jungian perspectives on the political development of Western culture. I have published chapters in books on Jung and education, Jung and science, and Jung and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. I also have published journal articles entitled: A transformative political psychology begins with Jung (Jung Journal, Winter 2011); and, Generational attention: Remembering how to be a people (JJSS, volume 8 2012). I am currently working on papers about the impact of Jung’s attitude toward groups on current Jungian organizations as well as the need to cultivate a new type of psychological practitioner for a new generation linking psychology and community engagement.

6) Michael Glock Ph.D: Biographical Details

I joined the IAJS shortly after its inception in England (2002-2006). As a member of the IAJS executive committee for several terms my focus has been on the online presence of the IAJS. Including managing the website, the online discussion forum [TALK], designing various surveys and co-creating and managing international conferences. The most recent being the Phoenix Rebirth u0026amp; Renewal conference from which we are in the process of co-editing a book to be published by Routledge.

My aim and focus is to foster and nurture an ever expanding dialog and knowledge inherent within depth psychology to a broad and varied global community. Why? Because the “word hangs by a thin thread.”

Professionally,  I am focused on clarifying and identifying personal, cultural and numinous patterns and future potentials, in organizations, groups and individual clients in workshops, retreats, one-on-one sessions and projects. I use experimental therapeutic systems to assist in imagining future opportunities after identification and removal of historical obstacles. My process and focus is on unpacking the right competencies and exploring organizational, group and individual assets in just the right way while focused on future objectives with right-now realities and opportunities.

Dr. Michael Glock, has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Pacifica Graduate Institute. California., USA.

By day I am the President of Bloom Factor Inc. A California USA corporation which is a multimedia digital and marketing firm.

7) Jean Hinson Lall: Biographical Details

My academic training includes a B.A. in English literature with a minor in history, an M.A. in archetypal studies, and further postgraduate work in theology and religious studies. In my twenties I taught English at a college in India and served on the staff of the U. S. Peace Corps, training and counseling volunteers.

Since 1975 my professional efforts have been divided between consulting work and research. I am a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist and astrological consultant in private practice in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Out of this work arose theoretical questions that motivated me to pursue further study. My M.A. thesis (Lesley University) examined astrology as a depth-psychological theory and method, a theme I explored further at the University of Kent (U.K.), department of religious studies. My ongoing research interests include the divinatory aspects of psychotherapy (traditional and modern); approaches to “reading” images (literary, religious, divinatory, oneiric, artistic); synchronicity in theory and practice; and how divinatory grids and memory systems (like poetic forms) both restrict and liberate imagination. I have presented my work at academic conferences in Europe and the U.S. My publications include a book co-edited with Angela Voss, The Imaginal Cosmos: Astrology, Divination and the Sacred (University of Kent, 2007).

I have been active in several organizations dedicated to Jungian and archetypal psychology. I was a co-founder (and later Director) of the Institute for the Study of Imagination, which presented programs in archetypal psychology, imagination and the arts and sponsored a series of publications with Lindisfarne Press. For many years I served as a board member and officer of what is now the Washington Jung Society, as well as a steering committee member for the Baltimore Jung Working Group. An IAJS member since 2008, I have been active in the discussion list and taken part in two conferences.

I value IAJS because it offers us the possibility of working together across enormous physical distances, disciplinary boundaries, and differences of culture, gender, religion, personality structure, life experience, and political disposition with the aim, not only of expanding scholarly knowledge but of enhancing human consciousness. The discussion list in particular permits us to surface the most difficult questions facing, not only our field(s), but humanity as a whole. To expose not only our best thinking but our personal and cultural shadows is risky and sometimes raw, but seems to me a vital undertaking.

8) Kiley Laughlin: Biographical Details

My name is Kiley Laughlin and I am requesting consideration for appointment to the IAJS executive committee. I have been a member of IAJS since November 2013. I think that I would be able to contribute in a number of productive ways to the executive committee based on my interests and background. I have traveled the abroad extensively and am a twenty one year veteran of the United States Army. I served multiple tours in the Balkans as well as Iraq. I feel that I have a solid foundation in Jungian psychology and other associated fields of knowledge (i.e., philosophy, history, cognitive science, etc.). I currently serve as an Intelligence Officer in the Army reserves based in San Francisco, California.

Academically, I have worked as an Adjutant Professor of Military Science at UC Davis in Davis, California. I recently provided a presentation on the alchemical significance of the phoenix symbol during the 2014 IAJS conference in Phoenix, Arizona. I have an AA degree from Campbell University, Buies Creek, North Carolina, as well as AAS in Intelligence Studies from Cochise College in Sierra Vista, Arizona. I completed my BA in History from California State University in Chico, California and subsequently earned a teaching credential in Social Science.

As of September 2014, I have completed my course requirements for my PhD in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I anticipate completing my dissertation by 2016. My dissertation explores image 169 (Faces and Skulls) of Jung’s Red Book and how it relates to Jung’s personal mythos and cosmology. I have three publications: “The Individuation Project” (Quadrant, summer 2013), “The Archetypal Leader” (Type in Depth, April 2014), and “Beyond the Cave of Broken Images: A Comparative Study of C.G. Jung’s Active Imagination Method and the Esoteric Practice of Ta’wil in Islam” (forthcoming in Quadrant, winter 2015).

9) Dr Catriona Miller: Biographical Details

Glasgow Caledonian University: Proposal to join Executive Committee of IAJS

After a Masters in Film Production, specialising in Art Direction, I completed a PhD at Stirling University. I joined the staff at Glasgow Caledonian University in 2005, where, as Senior Lecturer, I teach film theory and media policy. I am also programme leader for our MA TV Fiction Writing, which teaches students how to write for television.

Publications include a forthcoming (2014) chapter ‘Finding the Golden Egg: Illusions of Happiness in an age of Consumer Capitalism’ in The Happiness Illusion: how the media sold us a fairytale edited by Luke Hockley and Nadi Fadina, an article Slasher Movies: Inside and Out in the IJJS Moving Image Special Edition earlier in 2014, and “Twilight, Discourse Theory u0026amp; Jung” in Jung and Film 2 (2011) Editors Christopher Hauke u0026amp; Luke Hockley, Routledge.

I am a staff representative on the School (Faculty) Board, and was recently elected to the University Senate. I also sit on the board of a local advocacy charity that works with adults with learning difficulties.

I have been a member of the IAJS since 2006 when I attended the Greenwich conference, subsequently attending at Cardiff in 2009 and the regional London conference in 2011. I joined the editorial board of the International Journal of Jungian Studies in 2011 as the film reviews editor, having suggested the journal might want to consider including film and other screen media reviews alongside the book reviews – always important, as any fairy tale makes clear, to be careful what you wish for!   In 2013 I co-led an IAJS seminar on Fairy Tale and Myth.

I would be honoured to serve on the Executive committee of the IAJS, whose work as a forum for promoting and facilitating the exchange of Jungian and post Jungian ideas between the academy and practitioners and beyond has been an invaluable resource and champion for the field over the last 10 years.

11) Diego Pignatelli Spinazzola: Curriculum Vitae

I would like to promote aspects of Jungian theory which have to do with classicism and similarity with C. W along with Latin and alchemical allegories within the articles I would attempt to provide so forth. My book Jung and alchemy is currently being published and translated and I hope to enrich the list with some translated pieces or at least to get it posted on the website profile. More Jung means more originality as well as more prolific material to be read and assessed. That it is the kind of effort we should try in a way in which we could enriching the website as well along with featured publications, scholarship and current research in Jungian trendship amongst leading authorities and prominent scholars.
I also would like to interface Italian articles of mine with your English discussion forum in order of stressing latinism and classicism included within my short papers to current topics and that way linking the classic Jungian stuff or classical latinate arabesques and material with the modern and postmodern arena.
