Dear Mrs. Brewster,
I was subject of malicious “therapy” of Jungian analyst with close connections to Nazi skinheads. I have a claim at IAAP with regard to recism and malicious sexual transference and countertransference. I’ve read the Abstract of your work “African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows” and I’d like to have a full copy in pdf if possible. This is very important to me as I’m also subject to 6 months discrimination.
Hi Danail, I have forwarded your message to Dr. Brewster. If you do not hear back, you can also contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, see her website, https://fannybrewster.allyou.net/. -Ben
