Finding the space between east and west: The emotional impact of teaching in St Petersburg

Catherine Crowther and Jan Wiener, MSc

The paper describes our experience of teaching analytical psychology to a group of graduates of the East European Institute of Psychoanalysis in St Petersburg, our developing partnership as we struggled to teach and learn, each with our own assumptions, preconceptions and projections about the other, and the emotional impact of our radically different social, intellectual and political histories. We had to be affected to become effective. It draws on contemporary Jungian ideas to unpack the interpersonal dynamics involved when there are culturally different styles of learning, which created a complicated transference/countertransference matrix.

We believe we have by now witnessed a process of individuation among our students and at the same time they too have witnessed some change and growth in us.
