JP- Shadow and Complexes
December 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $180.00
Presented by Paula Smith-Marder, Ph.D.
Jung called complexes the building blocks of the psyche. We will consider how to identify a complex and its corresponding archetypal core and how to work with a complex when it becomes disruptive. Drawing from clinical experience and dream material, we will examine the shadow in its positive and negative aspects and the challenges inherent in integrating this often split-off aspect of the personality.
- Identify a complex with its archetypal core.
- Describe one way a person might know he or she is caught in a complex.
- Describe what Jung meant by shadow.
- Give an example of how the shadow can manifest in a dream.
