Jungian Art Therapy & Fairy Tales: Gathering the Pearls

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 701

Fairy tales are pure expressions of the collective unconscious and thus offer powerful guidance in our quest to understanding the human psyche. In fact, Marie Louise von Franz wrote extensively on the Jungian interpretation of fairy tales, reflecting on their symbolic qualities which often sought to redeem the feminine. “Goose Girl at the Well” eloquently illustrates the multiple layers of the therapeutic process as well as revealing the psyche’s innate movement towards wholeness. Using this Brothers Grimm fairy tale as the narrative framework, we will examine concepts in Jungian psychology relating to feminine and masculine principles, archetypal patterns, and transference/countertransference content in this 3-hour this workshop. It will also include a dramatic and creative art process to facilitate deeper understanding of this fairy tale’s psychological meaning and therapeutic implications on both a personal and archetypal level.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
