Jungian Sandplay: The Importance of Being and Silence in Child Analysis
June 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmCost at the Door: $95
Presented by Maria Ellen Chiaia, Ph.D.
Drawing from clinical and theoretical material, we will focus on the importance of being and the role of silence in analytic work with children. As the child tells his or her story through play and interaction with the therapist, we in turn imagine and empathize with the child in their world and in the wordless spaces between us. This capacity to be with the child’s emotional experience without verbal interpretation, allows children the freedom to express their thoughts and feelings without impingement, so that a liminal space may be created for healing and transformation.
- Describe what is meant by the term liminal space and its importance in child analytic practice
- Describe the role of silence in analytic work with children from a theoretical perspective
- Describe the role of silence in analytic work with children from a clinical perspective
- Give an example of how premature interpretation can interfere with a child’s symbolic play
- Give an example of how the analyst’s countertransference can affect his/her capacity to hold the silence in analytic child psychotherapy
