the seminar of Jungian analyst Ursula Wirtz

„Transference and Countertransference in analytical relationship. Traumatic and Erotic-sexual Transference and Countertransference dynamics”.


We will discuss the complex dynamic of the analytic relationship and focus on traumatic and erotic-sexual transference and countertransference. Gender issues in working with trauma will be addressed.

Ursula Wirtz, Ph.D., holds a doctorate in literature and philosophy, with a multifaceted expertise, being a clinical and anthropological psychologist as well as a Jungian psychoanalyst, practicing in Zürich, Switzerland. She has been internationally engaged in the training of Jungian analysts in Russia, Czech Republic, the Baltic States, China, and Taiwan. As a psychotraumatologist , her experiences extended to providing supervision for war and torture victims through the Red Cross and guiding therapists in their work with female survivors of mass rapes in former Yugoslavia. Ursula has contributed significantly to the field, with numerous publications covering diverse areas such as trauma, ethics, soul murder, and the convergence of psychotherapy and spirituality. Among her seminal works, “Trauma and Beyond: The Mystery of Transformation” stands as a testament to her expertise, having been translated into multiple languages including German, Russian, Polish, Czech, and Chinese. Presently a  translation is under way of her two other books, “Soulmurder: Incest and Therapy” and “Hunger for Meaning” (Wirtz/Zöbeli) into Ukrainian.

The seminar will take place in the Kampenhausen hall of the hotel “Rixwell Hotel Konventa sēta”, Old Riga, Kalēju street 9/11.
