The Butterfly Woman: Being Stuck and Getting Unstuck — Michael Vannoy Adams
Keywords: dream interpretation, transformation, imaginal psychology, imaginal essentialism, fantasy principle, detachment theory, Jungian analysis
This is a case presentation that includes the interpretation of an initial dream. The dominant image in the dream is a butterfly, which is an archetypal image of the psyche. This image is an example of what Jung calls a symbol of transformation. Just as a butterfly experiences a metamorphosis, so the psyche may experience a transformation. This case presentation discusses how, in this dream, the butterfly is stuck — that is, the psyche of the dreamer is stuck, and how it may get unstuck. …
Reflections on Bidirectionality of Influence in the Matisse/Picasso Relationship and in Clincal Practice from a Complex Adaptive Sytems (CAS) Perspective — Linda Carter
Keywords: bidirectionality, Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS), explicit memory, implicit memory, self-organizing system, dyadic expansion of consciousness, infant research, neuroscience, attachment, metaphor, Matisse, Picasso
Jung's prescient and oft quoted line, "For two personalities to meet is like mixing two different chemical substances: if there is any combination at all, both are transformed" (CW 16, 1954/1977, para. 163) is central to this paper, which considers contemporary notions of bidirectional influence in clinical practice and in the Matisse/Picasso artistic exchange and relationship. Grounded in Complex Adaptive Systems Theory, the author looks at the multi-layered, co-created/co-constructed systems that emerge through human interaction and, in this case, through artistic productions. It is through mutually influencing relationship that individuation is furthered moving each person to an expanded sense of self and to greater complexity.
