Jungian Psychology in Clinical Practice: Jung in Context
September 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $180.00
Presented by Marybeth Carter, Ph.D.
We will explore the origins of Jungian psychology within the history of depth psychology, a psychology that attempts to understand the language and the dynamics of the unconscious as it manifests in the work with clients and in the world. The various psychoanalytic theories are the basis of Western theories of personality and the characterization of core mental health-related issues. We will highlight similarities and differences between Freud’s and Jung’s psychological theories and then compare some neo- and post-Freudian psychoanalytical theories to Jungian psychology.
- Describe key concepts of depth psychology.
- Compare and contrast personality development as theorized by various depth psychological perspectives.
- Demonstrate a clinical understanding of trauma in the development of personality as understood by various depth psychologies.
- Apply key concepts of depth psychology to a clinical context.
