In this seminar, we will read Jung’s autobiography, Memories, Dreams, and Reflections, written later in his life as he reflected on the development of analytical psychology from a personal perspective. We will examine some of Jung’s primary theoretical discoveries, such as the personal and collective unconscious, the anima, and animus, and the Self, and how to identify and apply these concepts to clinical work. Group size will be limited in order to allow more time for discussion.
- Describe the difference between the personal and collective unconscious and give an example of how each can manifest in the course of clinical treatment;
- Give an example of how to analyze and interpret a dream from both a personal and archetypal perspective;
- Describe what is meant by the anima;
- Give an example of how the anima can manifest in the context of personal relationships ;
- Describe what is meant by the animus;
- Give an example of how the animus can manifest in the context of personal relationships;
- Describe what is meant by the Self and how it differs from the ego;
- Describe the pathological aspect of someone who is identified with the Self and how to address this in the context of psychotherapy.
