#4 - Ken Hodges - Symbolism: How Marketing Shapes Our Behaviour
Ken Hodges is a trainee psychotherapist and founder of the Jung Reading Group Discord community. Carl Jung explained a symbol as an image that signifies something larger than what we immediately know; a mystery. Religious movements use symbols — the Star of David, the Christian Cross, the Wheel of Dharma — to elicit specific behaviour from their followers. Symbols can get dangerous when they elicit maladaptive behaviours (think McDonald's slogan, 'I'm lovin' it'), and this is what we get into today. Expect to learn Carl Jung's conception of the symbol, why the human mind is attracted to symbols, how symbols can be used by marketers to manipulate behaviour, and how to defend against the psychological pull of marketing.

#2 - Dr Don Carveth - How To Understand Freud
Dr Donald L Carveth is an author, Professor Emeritus at York University, and a veteran psychoanalyst. Most people thinking of Sigmund Freud as 'that cocaine taking weirdo who was obsessed with sex'. While they might be right, many make the mistake of taking his theories literally when they are best understood metaphorically: the boy doesn't literally want to bang his mother (hopefully) as in the myth of Oedipus; he wants her all to himself. Reading Freud's work through a metaphorical lens lends deeper insight into ourselves and the world around us, and that's what we go into today. Expect to learn how to most effectively understand Freud, what most people get wrong about Freud's work, how modern media undermines men, and what to focus on if you're interested in training as a psychotherapist.

#1 - Dr Mark Winborn - Participation Mystique: The Psychology of Mob Mentality
Dr Mark Winborn is a Jungian Psychoanalyst and Clinical Psychologist. Following the atrocities of World War 1, Carl Jung was wary of collective movements. Evolutionary pressure has us prioritize behaviours that will ensure group membership By joining groups, we can lose our autonomy if we strictly adhere to its implicit and explicit rules. Individuality is replaced by a collective identity and responsibility for our actions is diluted: this collective relationship is what Jung referred to as 'participation mystique'. Expect to learn how magical thinking affects group behaviour, why creativity can help psychological wounds, how literature can give us insights into ourselves, and his experience visiting Carl Jung's castle, Bollingen Tower.

How Group Psychology to Understand Ourselves with John Doe
Kevin Briggs entered the United States Army in 1981, which led him to become a correctional officer at San Quentin State Prison. In 1990, he graduated from the California Highway Patrol Academy and worked predominantly on the Golden Gate Bridge. Having an average of four to six suicidal subjects, multiple collisions, and dozens of other law enforcement calls each month, this assignment proved very harrowing. In 1999, Kevin went on to graduate from the FBI Crisis Negotiation Course - following this, one of his duties was to train new officers and Golden Gate staff on crisis interventions and negotiations. Kevin retired from the California Highway Patrol in November 2013 and we on to promote Crisis Management, Leadership Skills, and Suicide Intervention and Prevention worldwide through his consultancy Pivotal Points. He continues speaking and teaching at conferences and law enforcement events, as well as consulting and advising major corporations. Kevin’s personal story includes being a cancer survivor, overcoming heart issues, divorce, PTSD, and depression. He is also a survivor of suicide loss. His story and experiences have been featured in The New Yorker Magazine, Men’s Health Magazine, NPR’s Bob Edwards Radio Show, The Steve Harvey Show, People Magazine, and a Yahoo documentary. Kevin also spoke at the 2014 Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) Conference, held in Vancouver, B.C. in March 2014. In episode nine of The Mental Wealth Podcast, I chat with Kevin Briggs about: his experience talking to suicidal people on the Golden Gate Bridge, starting with no training how Kevin kept solid emotional resilience while dealing with such high stakes situations how the nature of his career affected his mental health throughout the years the best way to talk to someone who we believe is suicidal his FBI training in Crisis Negotiation and how we can apply it ...and much more!
