Involuntary Dislocation: Theoretical Framework, Field Work and Jungian Reflections


Involuntary dislocation is proposed to address the wide spectrum of phenomena that are connected when people abandon their homes due to a variety of different upheavals, e.g. military conflict or disasters, but also various forms of social or even psychological marginalisation. The usual ‘mental health’ approaches to these phenomena are from the perspectives of ‘trauma’. A framework will be discussed that widens this focus and also includes resilience and ‘adversity-activated development’. Examples from field work will be given and Jungian reflections developed.
