Early in his career, psychiatrist Carl Jung takes on the challenge of a seemingly impossible case: a deeply disturbed, beautiful young woman named Sabina Spielrein. Jung employs his mentor Sigmund Freud’s experimental “talking cure” with great success. However, the relationships become increasingly intertwined and complicated as boundaries are crossed between patient and analyst, and as student becomes colleague. Discussant Yudit Jung, PhD, LCSW, is a psychoanalyst in private practice and on faculty with the Emory University Psychoanalytic Institute. She will offer an insider’s perspective on how Jung and his relationship with Freud was openly debated by those who knew him.
