Workshop: A Workshop on Poetry and Psychohistory: The Psychohistorian's Self, Culture & History
– by Howard Stein, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Oklahoma
Friday, June 1st, 2018 @ 12:45 pm - 1:35 pm
This largely participatory workshop will creatively explore the nexus of the psychohistorian's poetry and psychohistorical understanding. Specifically, it will examine and illustrate a psychohistorian's (e.g., the presenter) use of self (countertransference) (1) in deepening insight through his/her poetry into the emotional experience of what it is like to live in an organization, culture, and historic era; and further (2) in helping the psychohistorian to understand and explain the subject of inquiry, thereby complementing traditional methods of psychohistorical research. The presenter will first read and discuss a few of his own poems. Then he will invite (optional) group participants to write a sketch/draft of a poem that taps into the group member's experience of, say, a workplace, a culture, or a topic of psychohistorical research. Finally, he will invite group members to volunteer to read and discuss their poem and what they learned from it and from the exercise, about themselves and the subject of the poem.
At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to:
a) describe/ illustrate the contribution a psychohistorian's poetry makes toward psychobiographoical, psychoanalytic, and psychohistorical understanding of life events and human emotions and behavior;
b) discuss and analyze how a psychohistorical researcher/therapist/consultant's use of self can be articulated and symbolized in a poem, that in turn offers insight into the unconscious underpinnings of organizational, cultural, and historical process.
