This short play written by author and psychotherapist Elizabeth Clark-Stern portrays the complex relationship between Emma Jung and Toni Wolff through a series of imagined conversations spanning 40 years.  The afternoon will include introductory remarks exploring the life and work of both Emma Jung and Toni Wolff, followed by a dramatic reading of the play and a facilitated conversation focusing on the portrayal of both women, their relationship and their important roles in Jung’s life and Jungian psychology. 

Course objectives:

  • Understand and appreciate the unique contribution of both Emma Jung and Toni Wolff to the field of depth psychology and Jung’s work.

  • Explore the the complexity of relationship between these two independent women.

  • Consider the way a creative work like Clark-Stern’s play can shape, distort, or contribute to understanding.
