Through trauma towards creative innovations

Through trauma towards creative innovations

Through trauma – towards creative innovations

online professional development workshop series with

Jerry Fromm & Richard Morgan-Jones

“Bullets don’t just travel through skin and bone. They travel through time.”

 

These words were tattooed onto the shoulder of a young woman whose father was shot during “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland.

This workshop series is an opportunity to work with the wrenching, but also binding truth that trauma plays out over time, including between generations. Experiences that happen to a family, to a society, and to organisations intimately link these units with larger contexts of history and culture.

Etymologically, trauma is a wound to an organism, a puncturing of the physical, but also the psychological, “skin” or boundary that protects the inside from the outside.  When Freud took up the study of trauma, he described the “protective shield” parents provide for children.  What makes a psychological wound traumatic is that the events leading to it are extremely powerful, existentially threatening to the core self, and happen suddenly, in a way that breaches the person’s now internalized protective shield against massive overstimulation.  The capacity for thought and even for feeling is overwhelmed.  Instead, trauma leads to a reflexive effort to cut oneself off from the unbearable.  A broader definition of trauma would also recognize the debilitating effects of cumulative traumatic stress over time, leading to sustained, self-protective warping of a person’s development, to chronic self-destructive efforts at dulling the pain, and to actions that might very well traumatize others.

Drawing on his new book, ‘Traveling through Time’ Jerry Fromm and his colleague Richard Morgan-Jones will facilitate a series of six 90-minute workshop sessions comprising experience-based learning, reflection on experience and seminar presentation.

Participants will:

  • explore the Nature of trauma,
  • engage in (Im)possible dialogues, which may be between parts of the self, between groups or between generations, and the way in which trauma shapes large group identity, and
  • contemplate Creative innovations and new beginnings, through the establishment of potential space and some of the dynamics that occur within it.

The experiential elements of the workshops will utilise the ‘Trilogy Matrix Event’, a method developed by Richard Morgan-Jones that offers a potential integration of perspectives from across individual, group and contextual dynamics.

NIODA Colloquium 2022

The NIODA Colloquium is a forum for the final year students in the Master of Leadership and Management (Organisation Dynamics) to present to an audience of the NIODA community. This year the students will be choosing a focus from their learning across the program and the outcomes of their recent action research projects undertaken with participating organisations. The research projects are the culmination of three years of postgraduate study for the students, carried out under NIODA staff supervision, with ethics approval, and using systems psychodynamic methodological approaches.

By joining us at the colloquium, you will have access to a showcase of student learning and some of the latest research in systems psychodynamics as well as supporting the development of candidates in the field. Attesting to the calibre of work in the program is the knowledge that many past graduates have presented their work at international conferences and had their work published in refereed journals.

There will be seven live half-hour presentation and discussion sessions, you are invited to join for any session throughout the day.

The Unconscious

Online lecture/seminar series with

Professor Susan Long

This series will examine the idea of the unconscious from its beginnings in the work of Fredrik Schelling – a German philosopher of the Romantic period – through Psychoanalysis and Socioanalysis – to current views of the unconscious in neuro-psychoanalysis and eco-semiotics. The concept of the unconscious has endured through different iterations and has influenced not only clinicians and therapists, but also philosophers, scientists, artists, social scientists and authors. It has seeped into contemporary and popular language and influences the ways in which we see ourselves and each other.

In the series we will approach the many and varied conceptions of the unconscious through short lectures, recommended readings and discussions. The reading is recommended but not essential for attendance.

The sessions are led by Professor Susan Long who has studied ideas in unconscious dynamics for over 40 years.

Writing Workshop

Professor Susan Long

Thursday 13, Friday 14 and Saturday 15 October 2022

 

Professor Susan Long, author of many books and peer-reviewed articles, is offering a writing workshop for those who want to find the genuine author in themselves. Writing can take many forms: academic theses, research reports, persuasive items, business reports, journalistic pieces, novels and poems. Although having different purposes and audiences, all writing can be creative, and all messes can be cleaned up later.  This workshop aims to help participants become authors of their written pieces; to discover the role of author; to allow their imagination to flourish. It also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

In the Writing workshop, participants will approach questions such as:
Why do I want to publish?
Who is my audience?
How do I choose a journal or publisher?
What do reviewers and editors look for?
How can I manage time for writing?
How do I present and develop an argument?
How should I work with case study material?
How can I understand and develop my style?

There will be time for writing and gaining feedback.
