May 14, 2013

Experts at the Asheville Jung Center are planning a webinar discussing new material that will be released in DSM-V including how it ties into Jungian Psychoanalysis.

Asheville, NC (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

There is a lot of new material in DSM-V that will be released later this month. The Asheville Jung Center´s simplification of DSM-V fits into most schools of psychology. It is equally at home with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Object Relations, Self Psychology and many others. It is mostly “atheoretical,” meaning it is much more descriptive and less necessarily to pin to a certain theoretical perspective. That said, it still holds an aspect of Jungian psychotherapy that may be worth noting. The Asheville Jung Center was founded in 2008 to advance the psychology of Carl Jung and promote an international Jungian community. It is affiliated with innerQuest Psychiatry and Counseling, a regional psychiatrist group. Join the Asheville Jung Center on May 22nd, 2013 as they dive into the new material included in DSM-V.

Carl Jung was a Swiss born psychiatrist that was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud. While initially close friends, they separated paths in 1913 as they each developed unique schools of psychology. Jungian psychology has some concepts of interest including introversion / extroversion, archetypes, collective unconscious, persona, shadow and individuation. Dr. Steven Buser and the Asheville Jung Center will discuss how Carl Jung ties into DSM-5 in their next webinar.

Steven Buser, MD is a psychiatrist in private practice in Asheville, NC. He trained in medicine at Duke University and served 12 years as a physician in the US Air Force. He spent his final year in the military in the Republic of Panama and is fluent in Spanish.
