Psychosocial Wednesdays: ‘Roots in a Pot’ – The Identity Conundrum in Global Nomads

Amidst the disruptions of global mobility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, globalization continues to strengthen interconnections at various levels. This expansion, including a virtual dimension propelled by technology and AI, has enabled a growing number of individuals to become global nomads or ‘third culture kids or adults,’ moving internationally for work. These global nomads, characterized by diverse lifestyles, mindsets, and cultural backgrounds, face high degrees of uncertainty and precariousness due to frequent relocations. The journey to psychological individuation as a third culture adult is both adventurous and challenging. Focusing on the needs of mobile individuals, Elias Winterton examines the challenges faced by young global nomads. Using the case of Muriel, a Gen Z member (people born from 1995 to 2010) and digital native, who has undergone four relocations across three continents. Winterton explores the struggles with gender identity and sexual orientation, navigating societal pressures. The analytical process, supported by the therapist, becomes a key tool in embracing ambiguity and navigating the interplay between inner and outer worlds, marking the two significant achievements of this journey.

  • Brief Overview:

    More than a century ago, Freud gathered colleagues for Wednesday meetings that opened the world of psychoanalysis to a wide range of powerful ideas. Psychosocial Wednesdays are modeled on those Wednesdays and on Jung´s meetings at the Psychological Club, and feature speakers from various psychoanalytic traditions, schools, and associated fields.
