Instructor: Gary Brown, LCSW-R, LP

Jung’s ideas are broad and deep and often not fully understood, so there comes a time when revisiting them and clarifying their meaning becomes vital. Most students of Jung’s work necessarily learn of it in fragments, often missing important distinctions, such as the difference between the archetype and the archetypal image. An overview of his work can help us to comprehend the general scope of his ideas as a foundation for further study.
In this course, we will review Jung’s model of the psyche, especially as used in dreams, the sub-personalities of the psyche, and complexes. This overview of basic concepts will lay the building blocks of Jung’s complex and often misunderstood Analytical Psychology.
- Describe the place of psychoanalysis in the culture of Western Europe in the 19th cent, Jung’s involvement in this movement, and his connection to the work of Sigmund Freud.
- Compare Jung’s differences with Freud, his (Jung’s) search for how psychoanalysis works, in light of the emerging multiple schools of thought, each with a different approach and emphasis.
- Discuss how Jung’s concept of creating a psychology for each patient works in practice.
- Assess the central place of “the dream” in Analytical Psychology, its importance and how dreams are used in practice.
- Describe how the dream is embodied, in the individual, in the body, in life.
