CP-February 2022 Fairy Tales in Jungian Work
February 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Fairy Tales in Jungian Work
Presented by Marlene Frantz, M.A., M.F.T.
Fairy tales are allegorical stories that carry meaningful symbolic representations of complex external challenges, internal conflicts, and psychological processes. In this seminar, we will look at the symbolic nature of fairy tales and learn how to analyze them and amplify their archetypal images, characters, and themes through a process that is similar to the interpretation of dreams. We will also discuss why the interpretation of fairy tales is such an important clinical tool in Jungian psychology, and when it can be appropriate to introduce the use of fairy tales in our analytic work with patients. Please bring a favorite fairy tale to share that has always felt particularly important to you.
- Describe Jung’s concept of amplification as it pertains to working with fairy tales in clinical practice;
- Give an example of how the interpretation of fairy tales can help a patient to become more aware of their unconscious conflicts;
- Describe what is meant by an archetype;
- Give an example of when it would be therapeutically appropriate to introduce the interpretation of fairy tales.
