Jungian Psychoanalytic Theory: Personal and Clinical Application


Seminar 1: Fall 2020

12 Tuesdays: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
September 8th – November 24th
Instructor:Jane Selinske, EdD, LCSW, LP, NCPsyA

Analysis should release an experience that grips us or falls upon us from above, an experience that has substance and body such as those things which occurred to the ancients. If I were going to symbolize I would choose the Annunciation.—C.G. Jung

Jung’s psychological theories were developed from his personal and professional experiences and observations. In Memories, Dreams, Reflections Jung told about his history, development, dreams, thoughts, and how he arrived at the conception of Analytic Psychology. The later release of The Red Book presented additional insights around his descent into an intense confrontation with his unconscious which led to the central concept of his psychology: the process of individuation.

Jung’s Psychoanalytic Theory succeeds within a psychological Temenos, or sacred containment, with “God’s consent.” In the Temenos the existence, potentiality, closeness and manifestation of the God-Image can be experienced. Knowing this, the challenge is for the analyst/psychotherapist to learn all the theory possible as Jung stated, but then to forget it all and come to each individual encounter with an openness where the psyches of both can meet and intermingle. Jung recommended modifying one’s pre-existing theory for each patient.

In order to follow Jung’s recommendation to modify one’s pre-existing theory when working with a patient, the analyst/psychotherapist must first be familiar with Jungian concepts. We will begin by discussing Jung’s history, his Model of the Psyche and his Theory of Wholeness and Individuation.

This will be followed by Dream Interpretation, Typology, Transcendent Function, Alchemy, Active Imagination, Synchronicity, Symbols and Complex Theory.

Through lecture, discussion, preassigned YouTube Videos, readings and Personal and Clinical Application, the participants will have a greater knowledge and understanding of Jungian concepts. This didactic and experiential class will assist the practitioner in their clinical work and personal journey.

Reading Memories, Dreams, Reflections prior to class is highly recommended.
