Anxiety: What is it, and how do we deal with it, from a Jungian Perspective

 

5 consecutive Mondays, 7:00 – 8:30pm
Beginning October 5, 2020
Instructor: David Rottman, MA

“Every source of anxiety and frustration in one’s personal life, if it’s traced back far enough, will be found to derive from the Self.” (Edward F. Edinger, Ego and Self, p. 70)

The agonizing experience of anxiety, that robs so many people of the enjoyment of life, requires new ideas and perspectives that we get from depth psychology. In this course we will look at the nature of anxiety--with attention also to the nature of relief and calm--in each of three of life’s stages: Anxiety in Youth, Anxiety in Middle Age, and Anxiety in Old Age. By looking at anxiety from a Jungian perspective, we can see what the often hidden goals of anxiety are, as well as the essential life tasks associated with anxiety. We will focus on the process of “working through” to the central core of the origin and the resolution of anxiety.

Readings will include electronically distributed excerpts from Jung’s work. There is one text for the course: Ego and Archetype by Edward F. Edinger, which can be purchased from the Jung Foundation Bookstore and on Amazon.

7.5 CE contact hours for licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists.
