Presented by Marion Anderson, Ph.D. 4 Wednesdays: September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 2021; 3:30-5:30 pm Encountering images of the unconscious can have healing effects and provide a renewed attitude.

Videoconference—Edith Sullwold Memorial Lecture: The Alchemical Method: Transforming Lives Through Myth
Presented by Kwame Scruggs, Ph.D. Jung understood myths to be expressions of what he called the pre-conscious psyche, which reflect the archetypal nature of the collective unconscious. In this experiential seminar, Dr. Scruggs will present a myth, utilizing a method which integrates storytelling and drumming as a means of inviting an internal exploration of both archetypal and personal material in the service of developing social and emotional learning (SEL). The exploration and use of myth in the context of psychotherapy will be discussed both as a form of containment and structure for unconscious material, as well as presenting ways of dealing with emotional issues symbolically. Learning Objectives: Discuss how myth increases Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) awareness; Describe how myth increases capacity for self-reflection and self-discovery; Give an example of using myth to reframe and deepen experience.
