The Omaha Friends of Jung is a non-profit organization that offers education, workshops, web conferences, videoconferences and on going community activities for Nebraska and Iowa.
- Tim Swisher will introduce and discuss a paper written by Dr. Michael Cornwall entitled "Jung’s First Dream, The Mad God Dionysus and a Madness Sanctuary Called Diabasis".
Dr Cornwall suffered his own "creative illness" and has spent his career pursuing creative and imaginative ways to work with mental illness.
Diabasis was a program started by John Weir Perry in the 70’s that worked with psychotic patients without using drugs with some success. During this Salon we will discuss the article and talk about what is going on currently with non-traditional treatments of mental health issues and how often psychotherapy is left out of the treatment for many mentally ill people and people with mental health problems.
