The series of seminars explores Neumann’s early life theory and its complementarity to the relational theories. We will discuss Neumann’s conceptualization and terminology, to indicate the similarity with Fordham’s ideas about analytic work with children. We will describe a unified Jungian approach to the development of the ego and the establishment of the ego-Self axis throughout the primal relationship, as well as the possible disturbances and pathologies. Utilizing case material, we will discuss the application of a Jungian approach to the theory and practice of child analysis.
The second seminar will focus on the archetypal aspects of the primal relationship, and its different stages. It will describe the way through which the relationship with the mother (care giver) facilitates the development of the ego, and the ego-Self axis. Disturbances in the mother-infant bond and the way which may lead to failures in the primal relationship will be discussed, along with the possible remedies.
