Inspired by the 55th anniversary of “the summer of love,” when The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper was the #1 album, this presentation looks at the dysregulating clinical effects of electronic-communications media on the psyche through the lens of analytical psychology and media philosophy, with therapeutic insights and motifs drawn from The Beatles’ music and lyrics released in 1967.  

An inquiry concerning the effects of technology will act as a gateway for a fresh listening to some of The Beatles’ music and Jung’s call for individuation through psychological balance in a hyper-mediated world.

Jung, Media, and Disindividuation."  Dr. Froehlich trained as a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, where he is now an instructor, supervisor, and training analyst.  He also serves on the faculty of the C.G.
