According to Jung, the Persona is an image--a social mask--that helps us meet the universal need for our relationship to the outer world. This presentation will explore the necessity and usefulness of the Persona but also the conditions under which the Persona becomes a problem.
Jung's theory of the personal Shadow stands on the other side of the mask. It becomes the face of the "not-I" pr the rejected aspects of the personality. The Individuation process is the integration of those parts of ourselves and the vehicle for the manifestation on the Self and the archetype of Wholeness.
Particularly relevant at this time in our culture, Persona becomes important to our discussion of politics, gender, social roles, and authenticity.
Presenter is Susan Clements Negley, who is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Texas.
