Product Description

From the Author

consultations about scapegoating
ever since Up from Scapegoating has been available on amazon.com I recieved a number of consultation requests from individuals and subgroups who've experienced the scapegoating phenomena and want help. They've ranged from requests by lawyers to help with scapegoated, abused clients who want a handle on group process to members of religious communities who find themselves isolated by the blanket of goodness and denial to students in schools finding a class process to be powerfully scapegoating--often of friends as well as themselves. Each one takes some analyzing but I think there should be a group of people who are interested and can do something to advance a general theoy and practice. The dynamics of victimization by groups attempting to exclude and excommunicate for the purpose of their own wholeness is common to all kind of abuse.

From the Back Cover

Up from Scapegoating is the first book that connects Jungian psychology and its usual focus on the individual and individual development to group theory and group development. Arthur Colman, a pioneer in developing group relations theory and practice in the United States, takes Jung's basic beliefs in the collective unconscious, individuation, and the shadow and shows their relevance to the problems of groups, institutions, and political systems. His insights and new methods are extremely important in a nuclear and environmental age where every individual's survival is hinged to the happenings or consciousness of a larger group.

Amazon.com: HASH(0x9885bc78) out of 5 stars 4 reviews
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
By Whitnie Kramer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think that this book has a wonderful subject and I really learned a lot from it. It is about finding balance between the individual consciousness and the group consciousness. Also it talks about the concept of the shadow and the scapegoat, which are the dark aspects of personal and groups that we choose to block out or push upon someone or something.
However, it was a very hard read and took a long time to grasp what the author was saying.

people at times can behave savagely, animals are more humane at times. This book teaches people through use of awesome passages from Jung and other great minds, not to treat one another viciously..
