Working with Children
Presented by Elizabeth Schofield-Bickford, M.F.T.
This seminar will introduce different theoretical approaches to working with children in an analytic context, including issues of transference and countertransference, the function of the therapist, as well as the role of the parents. Drawing from clinical case material which will include art, play, dreams, and sandplay, we will focus on Jung’s concept of individuation as it pertains to the psychological development of the child. Our readings will be drawn from Brian Feldman’s Jung’s Infancy and Childhood and its Influence Upon the Development of Analytical Psychology, and LaVon Bobo’s Neumann’s Map: Guide to Sandplay as a Natural Evolutionary Process.
- Describe Jung’s concept of individuation as it pertains to working with children;
- Give an example of how to identify themes that are woven through a child’s process using examples from sandplay, art, dreams, and symbolic play;
- Describe the analytic function of the therapist in working with children;
- Give an example of how to work with transference and countertransference in child psychotherapy.
