A daylong seminar led by Jane Selinske, EdD, LCSW, LP
"The human psyche is the womb of all the arts… and creative art has its roots in the immensity of the unconscious.”
—C.G. Jung, CW 15, Par 134
Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.
C.G. Jung’s confrontation with his unconscious led him to enter the presence of a living encounter with the unconscious. Jung developed his theories through the drawing of individual mandalas and sketches and believed the drawing and dialogue was a tool for one’s individuation process. The result was his monumental achievement in art demonstrated in The Red Book. While Jung had a keen appreciation for art and drawing he had a complexed relationship to music. His lack of exploration with music was due to the intense projections that arose when he listened to music. An exploration of Jung’s symbolic process as it applies to art, music and image making will be discussed through Jungian Psychological Theory. This workshop is didactic and experiential and will teach participants how to integrate art, music and image making into their personal and clinical work. Participants will learn how to integrate the unconscious with the conscious through the use of the creative arts and will realize the potential pathway for psychological and spiritual growth.
- Describe the importance of the objective nature of psyche’s images according to C. G. Jung.
- Discuss the significance of the unconscious language of images and symbols as therapeutic and spiritual guides.

- Apply music listening and art expression experiences to reinforce the Jungian theoretical clinical learning.
