Validity & Location

Dr Brewster will discuss the subject of her latest book.
In The Racial Complex: A Jungian Perspective on Culture and Race, Dr Brewster revisits and examines Jung’s classical writing on the theory of complexes, relating it directly to race in modern society. In this groundbreaking exploration, Brewster explores how racial complexes influence personality development, cultural behaviour and social and political status, and how they impact contemporary black & white, American racial relations.
She also investigates aspects of the racial complex including archetypal shadow as core, constellations and their expression, and cultural trauma in the African diaspora. Analysing Jung’s work with a renewed lens, Brewster extends Jung’s work to become more inclusive of culture and ethnicity, The book concludes with a discussion of racial complexes as a continuous psychological state and how to move towards personal, cultural and collective healing.
