To this end\, he developed the technique of active imagination in which patients use non-verbal forms of expression as a means to work with their unconscious symbolically. In this experiential workshop\, we will focus on spontaneous drawing as a means of working with material from the personal unconscious\, as well as the images of the collective unconscious. Please have access to paper\, pencils\, crayons\, and/or markers for use in the workshop. No previous art experience is necessary. \nLearning Objectives: \n\nDescribe how spontaneous drawing can be utilized as a means of working with unconscious material;\nDescribe what Jung believed about spontaneity and how he realized the need to develop this aspect for himself in terms of his personal growth and its relevance to psychotherapy;\nDescribe how spontaneous drawing can be used as part of a diagnostic evaluation;\nGive an example of how to utilize spontaneous drawing in the context of a therapy session;\nGive an example of how spontaneous drawing can be utilized when working with trauma;\nDescribe why it might be helpful for patients to draw images from their dreams;\nCompare the differences between writing vs drawing dream images;\nGive an example of how individuals from different age groups can utilize spontaneous drawing;\nGive an example of how to work with the symbolic material that emerges from spontaneous drawing;\nGive an example of how to differentiate between images from the personal vs the collective unconscious;\nDescribe what Jung meant by the transcendent function;\nDescribe why the transcendent function is an important achievement in psychological development;\nGive an example of how the transcendent function can be seen in spontaneous drawing.\n\nPatricia Anne Elwood is a Child\, Adolescent\, and Adult Jungian Analyst. Patricia did her analytic training at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich and trained in Sandplay with Dora Kalff. A teacher\, author\, lecturer\, and researcher\, Patricia has always been passionate about Jung’s own approach to spontaneity and the direct access it provides to the unconscious. She discovered that spontaneous drawing leads to unexpected revelations beyond the conscious\, thinking mind and this became her field of exploration over several decades. She lives and practices in Lausanne\, Switzerland. URL: LOCATION:Zoom Meeting – Link will be emailed to participants.
