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.

Saturday Workshops

This workshop has been postponed until further notice

A daylong workshop led by Katherine Olivetti, MA, MSSW

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.

The Family as a Crucible for Individuation

Saturday Workshops

Saturday, October 26, 2019
9:30 am– 4:30 pm

A daylong seminar led by Lisa Marchiano, LCSW, NCPsyA
Contact hours: 6 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Please note that if you received credit for Lisa Marchiano’s July 10, 2019, program on the Family as Crucible for Individuation, you cannot receive credit for this workshop. It is the same program.

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
Rumplestiltskin


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.

Lisa Marchiano, LCSW, NCPsyA, is a licensed clinical social worker and diplomate Jungian analyst in private practice in Philadelphia, PA. Her writings have appeared in Psychological Perspectives, Quillette, and Areo. Along with two colleagues, Lisa produces the weekly podcast This Jungian Life, which examines a range of issues from a depth psychological perspective. She is currently working on a book about motherhood as a depth initiation.

Music, Art and Imagery: Pathways to Psychological and Spiritual Growth

Saturday Workshops

Saturday, November 23, 2019
9:30 am– 4:30 pm

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.

Learning Objectives

  • 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.
  • Summarize Jung’s Map of the Psyche as the basis for understanding an individual’s psychological struggle for consciousness.
  • Describe the different pathways to psychological and spiritual growth such as:
    Active Imagination
    Amplification
    Personal Associations to dreams and symbols
    Dreams/Images
    Music/Art
  • Describe how to engage the psyche through imaginal techniques using music, art and images.
  • Apply music listening and art expression experiences to reinforce the Jungian theoretical clinical learning.
  • Apply C.G. Jung’s theoretical insights to personal and clinical examples.

Jane Selinske, EdD, LCSW, LP, MT-BC, is a Jungian analyst, a practitioner of Mandala Assessment and a Board Certified Music Therapist.  She is a faculty member of the C.G. Jung Foundation, the C.G. Jung Institute of New York and the Institute for Expressive Analysis of New York and also serves as President of the Jung Foundation.
