1115. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be an Analytical Psychologist?
Cara Lee Barker, PhD
“After I completed my PhD in clinical psychology, I began working in the so called ‘human potential movement.’ People wanted to dig deeper into who they really are on every level: spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and social. I loved doing that work and would have done it for free! I did my post-doctoral work in Zurich as an International Diplomat and Jungian Analyst. After reading Carl Jung’s book–The Symbolic Life–I quickly realized the vital importance of dreams in helping people discover their inborn talents. I continue to work with clients, which uses my best talents, while I devote an increasing amount of time writing. My favorite life lesson from my very supportive parents: ‘Lean into the thing you are trying to resist. Always lean in.’”
