ROOM 204/5

Session Sold Out — Wait List Initiated

Archetypal psychology features a core belief that human beings are in a continuous process of development. This ongoing creative cycle is greatly enhanced by the discovery of symbolic archetypes that speak to common human experiences. As Carl Jung once wrote, “It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” Creative and expressive processes, when viewed through an archetypal framework, invites us to identify patterns that connect our personal experiences to the universal human condition. This workshop will provide an overview of Jung’s theoretical framework of the psyche’s content and structure; this will form the foundation for exploring psychological processes through the lens of archetypes, symbols, imaginal principles, and the Hero’s Journey. These theoretical considerations will be coupled with a presentation of art therapy strategies to develop creative pathways to individuation that are applicable to diverse clinical and non-clinical settings for use by clinicians of all persuasions.
