JP- The Self

Presented by Pamela Power, Ph.D.
In this class, we will discuss ways the notion of the Self is relevant to our clinical work on the somatic, emotional, and cognitive levels. The Self can be thought of as a process of integration of disparate or dissociated parts of the psyche. Defenses that inhibit these processes will also be discussed considering current research on mentalization. The relation of the Self to the religious nature of the psyche will be considered.
- Describe what is meant by Jung’s notion of the Self as an integrative process.
- Describe two ways the Self manifests in the transference.
- Describe what is meant by a mentalizing intervention.
- Describe how the Self can manifest as a somatic symptom.
- Describe the relationship of the Self to the religious nature of the psyche.
