This thesis draws from developments in Jungian thought, somatic and mindfulness-based therapeutic modalities, and interpersonal neurobiology to examine the cultural layer of the unconscious and the complexes that operate therein in their relevance to clinical work. Using hermeneutic and heuristic methodologies, it argues for the development of awareness in the clinician of culturally rooted complexes as they manifest in the clinical moment, and the importance of recognizing, accepting, and working with the defenses around these complexes. The importance of therapeutic work from a somatic and mindfulness-oriented approach is discussed, drawing from the theory and practice of Hakomi and the Re-Creation of the Self Model of Human Systems, as grounded in interpersonal neurobiology and complementary to aspects of Jungian theory.
