About the event
In the upcoming August study group, we will explore the fairy tale of Cinderella. Cinderella, among other fairy tales, is still one of the most popular one in modern time. We can still find this name to describe girls who raise from poverty and deprivation to be a princess, marrying an ideal prince. However, in the fairy tale, it is not only describing how heroic and bravery Cinderella to transform from “living in the ashes” alone to “living in the castle with the prince”, but more about the psychology of femininity, especially envy. With the absent father, how the stepmother, the two sisters, the fairy and Cinderella interacted and what they represented in female is worthwhile to study. In this study group, we will mainly use the original story of Cinderella, and the Jungian interpretation of envy from the book of Ulanov “Cinderella and her sisters, the envied and the envying”. Our presenter, George Kwok, will help to facilitate the group discussions with related clinical case materials to enrich our discussion, for instance family with sibling competition, and especially sibling rivalry disorder. The participants are welcome to bring with questions for discussions and sharing and are expected to read the story.
We sincerely invite you to join us in this study group.
