Collage as a form of active imagination can be utilized both as part of the analytic process as well as for personal growth, as it facilitates the expression of psychological issues that may not be easily accessible to the conscious mind. Through the process of collage making, an opportunity to work creatively with images from the unconscious can bring an awareness of internal conflicts, defensive functions, as well as blocks to one’s creativity. Intended both for therapists as well as the general public, participants will be given an opportunity to make their own collages, and for those who are interested, to share their collages in order to demonstrate how to work with their individual collage psychologically in the context of clinical practice.

- Give an example of when it would be appropriate to introduce active imagination in the context of a psychotherapy session;
- Give an example of how collage making can reveal a patient’s unconscious dynamics;
