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.
