Temenos Institute will hold a lecture by Dr. Joseph P. Wagenseller on "Healing in Depth, Areas of Critical Hurt" 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at the institute, 29 East Main St.

The presentation will draw upon the unique discoveries of Culver Barker, M.D., an early associate of C.G. Jung, M.D. Applying Jung's methods, Barker discovered that "areas of critical hurt" are often "cocooned off" from the core of an individual's identity at important developmental stages in individuation, according to a release from the institute.

Wagenseller is the founder and executive director of Temenos Institute in Westport. The Jungian analyst and past president of the C.G. Jung Institute of New York is chairman of the board of trustees of the American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis Inc. and an associate professor at New York City's Columbia University.

Admission is $15.

The institute is a nonprofit organization and center for pychotherapy and experiential learning that offers individual, family, marriage, pastoral counseling and group therapy. For information, call 203-227-4388.
