Presented by August J. Cwik, Psy.D. The Axiom of Maria Prophetissa states: One becomes Two, Two becomes Three, and out of the Third comes the One as the Fourth. This axiom holds one of life’s great mysteries—the secret of secrets—and proves to be a master metaphor for the process of individuation itself and spiritual regeneration. In this presentation we will look at the first four numbers as they have been elaborated psychologically. We will look at this process developmentally in relation to body, soul and spirit, how various psychologies have emerged out of them, and how they lead to the three stages of coniunctio as described by Jung in Mysterium Coniunctionis. Learning Objectives: Discuss the Axiom of Maria in psychological terms; Describe the three stages of coniunctio. August J.

In this presentation, we will examine our own potential for rage, hatred, and violence, and our horror at confronting this shadow piece of ourselves. We will examine what happens symbolically when one is faced with and threatened with possession by our own internal destructive forces, and ways of working with this material clinically. Learning objectives: Describe critical factors which contribute to self-destructive and violent behavior; Describe how to help clients identify and work with their self-destructive patterns of behavior; Identify some countertransference responses which may affect the therapist in dealing with self-destructive patterns in patients.

Presenter: Janie Ingalls, M.A., M.F.T. 2 Sundays: April 18 and May 2, 2021, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm (Pacific Time) This presentation will be in two parts. Enrollment for the Series Only. 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. Learning objectives: Describe what is meant by Jung's term "active imagination;" 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; Describe how…Find out more »
