The intimacy of family relationships will inevitably mean that we encounter parts of ourselves that are unlikely to surface in other contexts.  We may experience shadow aspects of our psyche that are usually split off, denied or disowned.  In this session we will explore how intimate relationships such as parenting can introduce us to these shadow parts. Being part of a family will challenge us to claim our authority, reconcile ourselves to our dark emotions, embrace the wisdom of the instincts, and forge a new relationship with our creative daimon. Family is indeed a crucible in which individuation can be quickened. In circumambulating this topic, we will use clinical vignettes, fairy tales and dreams.

Suggested Readings

Tatterhood
Baba Yaga
The Horned Women

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how family relationships can bring us into contact with disallowed parts of ourselves.
  • Discuss the ways in which family relationships offer us opportunities to integrate previously split off parts of ourselves such as aggression.
  • Explain how family relationships and parenting in particular require us to reconnect with healthy instincts.
  • Demonstrate how family life can lead to restoring a connection with creativity.
  • Identify ways in which addressing conflict in family relationships can help us consolidate a sense of personal authority.
