Cultural Practice of Image in Poetry, Art and Psychology

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

10 Wednesdays, 6:45 – 8:25 pm
Beginning March 4, 2020 (except April 8th)
Instructor:  Sylvester Wojtkowski, PhD

Jung’s opus is a testimony to the power and importance of images for the human psyche and our culture. For Jung, psyche consists essentially of images which “have a quality of consciousness.” Since his confrontation with the unconscious in The Red Book, Jung worked ceaselessly to develop psychology rooted in the soul.  The Modern Man Search for the Soul is essentially a quest to notice spontaneously emerging images, to express and value them, and dialogue with and otherwise engage them.  This encounter with non-ego images as persons is transformative to the ego, which increasingly becomes aware of itself as an image and individuates in the process. 

To deepen our appreciation of the mytho-poesis, myth and image making capacity of the psyche, we will further study contributions of the French philosopher of science and poetic imagination—Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962).  Through reading and discussion of his exploration of elemental imagination we will deepen our understanding and appreciation of images and their roles in our lives. 

Our journey will aim at the notion of, in the words of James Hillman, the imaginal ego, that is, the ego that sees itself as an image, which is open to engage other images non-defensively, and to be transformed by them. The practice of the image in many forms will aim towards the common ground that the Jungian psychoanalyst Michael Vannoy Adams calls imaginology--the study of the imagination.  Location: TBA

Early Artistic Expression of Life’s Transitions – Adolescence and Midlife

FIRST TUESDAY FORUM

Tuesday, March 3, 2020
12:30 – 1:30 pm

Speaker: Harmar D. Brereton, MD

Psychologists have long examined life’s transitions, but is it possible that the artist has been examining these events as well, and for much longer?

This presentation will look first at the cave art discovered in The Caves du Volp in the French Pyrenees and the possible relationship with the transformation in adolescence.  In the second half of the presentation, we will examine the Transition of Odysseus through midlife--from The Iliad to his homecoming in The Odyssey.

We will see how these works are small stops on life’s journey and the self-creation of the artist. Both Nietzsche and Jung see art as a forum for self-transformation and healing. In and through art we can deal with our problems and suffering and turn negative emotions into positive, uplifting ones. As he presents it in “The Healing Function of Art,” Jung sees great potential in art’s capacity to heal.

Harmar Brereton, MD, is a medical and radiation oncologist trained at the National Cancer Institute and Johns Hopkins.  He has an undergraduate degree in History from Yale.  He is on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medical School and is a clinical professor of Medicine at Geisinger Commonwealth Medical College. He worked for 10 years with a Jungian analyst and Jesuit priest in the development of his medical practice, and he is now developing a curriculum for medical students that includes the humanities and arts. 

Dr. Brereton taught a course on Homer, The Iliad and The Odyssey in 2018 and on Palaeolithic Cave Painting 2019 at the Schemel Forum for adult education at the University of Scranton.  In 1999 he visited and studied the caves of France and Spain and in 2018 was invited to join the archeological excavation team of “Odysseus Unbound,” which is currently excavating what may be Odysseus’ true home on the Paliki peninsula of the island of Kefalonia.

No reservations required, suggested contribution fee of $2.00. All are welcome.

Journeys through Underworlds: The Psyche Keeps Score

 

Saturday Workshops

This Workshop is Cancelled

A daylong seminar led by Mark Napack, MA, STL, MS

The "underworld" is a symbol that holds many meanings relevant to psychology and psychotherapy--the unconscious, the dream, as well as myths and stories of the underworld.  The underworld is not alien to this world.  It is not even under. As C.G. Jung pointed out, the underworld of the unconscious exerts its effects in the world in which we live, personal and collective. This workshop will explore underworld journeys as archetypally expressed in classic underworld tales and myths. Aeneas, Odysseus, and Dante, as well as Orpheus and Persephone, will be joined with psychological insights. In addition to psychotherapeutic applications, our goal will be to learn from these journeys in order to come through to a belonging in this world with greater wholeness.

In our exploration of the underworld, we will look at the contribution of Jungian analyst Donald Kalsched to trauma theory and psychotherapy and analysis. We will also look at ways in which Kalsched's theory and framework may be further developed.  The psyche keeps score and, when exile and trauma hit, they register symbolically and create a distinctive psychological underworld.  The journey out of this type of dissociative underworld involves a unique interplay of relational and symbolic processes, which will be elucidated.

Not all underworlds are expressive of trauma bonds. The mytho-poetic dimension of the psyche has revealed other types of underworlds that serve and symbolize other purposes. It can hold the dead, disowned and exiled parts of self, and even the soul (anima/animus, in Jungian terms). We will take a look at some of these, since there are many, in order order to get a sense of the underworld's continuing relevance for human existence and the practice of psychotherapy. While the psyche keeps score, the journey through the underworld contains the possibility of true redemptions, healing recoveries and new life.

Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe psychological meanings and therapeutic relevance of myths and stories of the underworld.
  • Explain the symbolization specific to trauma in the underworld.
  • Analyze the resolution of trauma as presented in the underworld.
  • Disclose the role of Jung's "transcendent function" in underworld journeys.
  • Identify what "underworlds" look like in this world through various video examples.
  • Describe the therapeutic role of relationship and symbol in the journey out of the underworld.

Mark Napack, MA, STL, MS, studied archetypal patterns in comparative literature at Columbia University, after which he applied Jungian theory to the redemption motif in medieval theology for his thesis at Fordham University.  He further studied Jung, psychology, and the history of religion at Loyola and Catholic Universities.  A long-time graduate and college instructor, Mark has presented at international conferences and his work has appeared in scholarly journals and books in English and French.  Mark Napack, LCPC, is also a Jungian informed psychotherapist in North Bethesda, MD.

Aging: The Penultimate Transition

 

Saturday Workshops

This workshop has been postponed until further notice.

A daylong seminar led by Julie Bondanza, PhD

Aging held a special significance for Jung and he wrote extensively about it as a crowning of a life struggle with individuation. In “The Stages of Life” he writes that an aging person has a duty and responsibility to devote serious attention to himself/herself.  Jung called this period the “Afternoon of Life,” a time to explore what we have neglected or repressed during our lifetime.  This session will explore both the losses and opportunities for transformation using life examples, dreams, myths and fairy tales.  We will name and describe three losses that occur as people age, explain the importance of life review in the aging process, describe the final stage of Erik Erikson’s developmental process and give examples of how this works, explore the meaning of a “second childhood” from both a negative and positive point of view and examine from a Jungian point of view the role of the soul and death.

Complexes and Complexity: The Multiplicity of the Psyche

Saturday Workshops

This workshop has been postponed until further notice

A daylong workshop led by Katherine Olivetti, MA, MSSW

In this workshop, Katherine Olivetti will discuss Jung’s complex theory, and connect it to more recent depth psychological literature. Through lecture, discussion, and experience participants will have the opportunity to learn how to work with a complex, their own or a client’s, how to understand the part the complex plays in the overall defensive structure, how the movement of complexes is related to dissociation and trauma, and how healing occurs.  Participants are asked to bring a notebook for written exercises.

Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.


 

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the basics of a Jungian theory of complexes.
  • Discuss how complexes compose the defensive structure of the psyche.
  • Explain the relationship between the formation of the complex, trauma, and dissociation.
  • Identify the activation of a complex personally and in others.
  • Apply techniques to help professionals and clients hold a space from which to understand more deeply the complex that is activated.
  • Demonstrate how to work with dream material that sheds insight on complexes and the way they interfere with individuation.

Dreams: Their Meaning and Uses from an Orientational Jungian Approach

Saturday Workshops

Saturday, February 29, 2020
9:30 am– 4:30 pm

A daylong seminar led by David Rottman, MA

Is there a way of knowing the definite meaning of a dream? What kind of change can we expect after we grasp the meaning of a dream? Is there a healing dimension to dreams, a warning dimension, a wisdom dimension, a dimension that reveals elements of our fate?

In his revolutionary book The Way of the Image, Jungian analyst Yoram Kaufmann said he “crystallized Jung’s ideas” in formulating the Orientational Approach to the psyche.(See note below*) In this workshop we will use the Jungian Orientational approach to explore 10 dreams for their revelations about human psychology. Finally, we will apply this approach to understand outer life situations, in work and relationships, as we do a dream.
*Prior to the workshop, please read the title essay in The Way of the Image by Yoram Kaufmann, available in the C.G. Jung Bookstore, or on Amazon from Zahav Books.

Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Apply an Adult Development Lifespan Perspective to Complexes and Images.
  • Discuss the role of Cultural, Social and Personal Contexts in Generating Psychological Interpretations.
  • Assess the role of Endogamous and Exogamous impulses as manifested in Dreams.
  • Summarize the Orientational Method of translating Symbols and Images into Words and Concepts.

David Rottman, MA, is past President of the C.G. Jung Foundation and is a longtime member of the Jung Foundation’s Continuing Education faculty. He holds a Masters degree in Applied Psychology from New York University and is the author of The Career as a Path to the Soul. He was the editor and publisher for The Way of the Image by Yoram Kaufmann. He has a private practice in New York City.

In Thrall or Debt to Circe? Jungianism and the Devouring Uroboros

Continuing Education: Spring 2020

5 consecutive Thursdays, 7:00–8:30pm Beginning March 5
Instructor: William Baker, PsyD

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

Homer’s story of Odysseus and Circe provides a vital amplification for a dangerous paradox one might face in approaching the unconscious with Jung’s analytical psychology. Just as Circe becomes either an invaluable guide to the underworld or a seductive destroyer, depending on the attitude one takes in approaching her, Jungian psychology may be used to either genuinely and consciously engage the depths, or as an intoxicating shortcut to archetypal identification. “Anyone who identifies with the collective psyche—or, in mythological terms, lets himself be devoured by the monster—and vanishes in it, attains the treasure that the dragon guards, but he does so in spite of himself and to his own greatest harm” (CW 7 para. 477, 1916/1966). When any system of thought is embraced as an all-encompassing ideology, one is seduced and devoured by a sense of perfectionism in which shadow is dissociated and projected rather than honestly owned and integrated. In this course we will explore the psychology and mythology of fundamentalism, idolatry, and other seductive dead-ends off the path of individuation.

Location: 15 East 11th Street, Apt 1L. Please note that this class has limited enrollment. need reg!
