Psychological Types was his first major work after this period of his life. In the first class, we will examine the development of Jung’s theory of typology throughout Jung’s life and later by several Jungians.

Fairy Tales in Jungian Work Presented by Marlene Frantz, M.A., M.F.T. Fairy tales are allegorical stories that carry meaningful symbolic representations of complex external challenges, internal conflicts, and psychological processes. In this seminar, we will look at the symbolic nature of fairy tales and learn how to analyze them and amplify their archetypal images, characters, and themes through a process that is similar to the interpretation of dreams. We will also discuss why the interpretation of fairy tales is such an important clinical tool in Jungian psychology, and when it can be appropriate to introduce the use of fairy tales in our analytic work with patients. Please bring a favorite fairy tale to share that has always felt particularly important to you. Learning Objectives: Describe Jung’s concept of amplification as it pertains to working with fairy tales in clinical practice; Give an example of how the interpretation of fairy tales can help a patient to become more aware of their unconscious conflicts; Describe what is meant by an archetype; Give an example of when it would be therapeutically appropriate to introduce the interpretation of fairy tales. Marlene Frantz, M.A., M.F.T., is a Jungian analyst, a group psychotherapist, and an equine therapist…Find out more »

The Collective Unconscious in the Age of Neuroscience:
Severe Mental Illness and Jung in the 21st Century
Presented by Hallie Durchslag, Ph.D.
Is all psychosis the same? Depth psychology treats it as such, yet medical models of severe mental illness say different. While medication can be a dirty word in Jungian circles, some disorders cannot be treated without it. Is there common ground? Can Jung’s bedrock notion of a collective unconscious coexist within scientific advances that have occurred since his death? The answer is a resounding yes. This workshop will explore the remarkable prescience of Jung’s work, how medical models actually advance his theory, and the challenges and opportunities for analytical psychology moving forward.
Presented by Pamela Power, Ph.D.
This presentation is meant to open a discussion of the impact of tele-health technology on the psychoanalytic process with a particular focus on transference and countertransference. The more hidden and refractory aspects of the psyche seem to be less effectively met in the process of ‘distance’ analysis. While we are aware of the losses ensued by the lack of in-person meetings, are there any gains? Perhaps we are living in the midst of a paradigm shift to what Jungian psychoanalysis is becoming.
Presented by Stephen Kenneally, M.B.A., M.F.T.
How do clinicians and patients bear the spark of consciousness that the analytic encounter can generate when we know that full integration is elusive and slow? The slow circling of a complex can be frustrating; the defensive regressions can be demoralizing; and the envious attacks can be exasperating. This conversation will address various strategies to help the therapist hold these reactions and discuss ways of thinking about these painful encounters as necessary precursors in the service of individuation.
In-Person + Zoom: For Clinicians Only:
At the Intersection of Identity Politics and Analytical Psychology
Presented by Barry Miller, Ph.D.
As our present culture struggles (as all cultures do) to find what seem like the "truths" about ourselves and our position in the culture, we must all relate personally to the emerging ideas that have enormous impact in generating pivotal assumptions of physical and psychology identity. Issues such as recognizing the urgent need to bring in those who have been outcastes, or our yearning for an understanding of the variance of sexualities and gender, are some of the conditions that generate a tendency to coagulate a readily communicable identity, offering a sense of knowing who one is and who is the other. The analytic relationship becomes an arena where these truths and emerging ideas are tested in terms of an individual's own psychology. The ways in which we approach these current themes, how they emerge in the work, and how we maintain a psychological attitude in the presence of these tensions will be the focus of our discussion.

Group Dreaming during Times of Extraordinary Private and Communal Stress
Presented by Judith Hecker, Ph.D.
Beginning in September 2001, a small group of candidates in training at the C. G. Institute of Los Angeles began meeting to discuss their dreams. Some of the themes that emerged included responses to the stress, fear, and anxiety resulting from the current political situation, how individuals respond to extreme personal and communal disturbance, and what analytical psychology has to offer in terms of dealing with current reality and our adaptive responses to it. We will also address how to apply the principles of small group dreaming to one’s clinical practice.
Presented by Marion Anderson, Ph.D.
While Jung emphasized the importance of fantasy and play to psychic development, he also recognized that fantasies also need to be actively transformed and symbolically represented for any significant transformation to occur. In this workshop series, we will use a fantastic short story and actively engage with color and brushes as a means of helping our inner images become alive and more conscious. Individuals will be encouraged to further amplify their images through personal reflection such as writing and sharing with the group. We will discuss ways of implementing painting as a form of active imagination in the context of analytic work.
This workshop does not require any artistic training or capacities and is for adults only.
Presented by Pamela Power, Ph.D.
This presentation will begin with a brief overview of the evolution of Western music before turning to the music of Rap that today plays a powerful, perhaps unrecognized, artistic function of our times. Rap is ubiquitous around the world, provides a unifying function and carries a spirit of global awareness. Rap can be seen as contemporary ‘liturgical’ music.
