Jung’s Red Book:
A Seminar on the Words and Images

Saturday, April 17, 2021
10:00am– 3:00pm

CLOSED

A daylong Zoom seminar led by Sanford L. Drob, PhD

Contact hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

This class will involve a discussion of the text and major themes of Jung’s Red Book (with reference to his preparatory Black Books) and a meditation upon his painted images.   Our primary goal will be to understand the relevance of Jung’s encounter with his soul to the work on the psyche, individuation and the psychotherapeutic process. We will also consider the epistemological, ethical and theological implications of Jung’s Red Book project, place The Red Book within the context of the history of ideas, address the relationship between the The Red Book and Jung’s Collected Works, and consider the importance of The Red Book for contemporary psychology.


Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the place of Jung’s Red Book in the development of Jung’s work and the place of The Red Book in the 20thcentury psychology. Describe how Jung’s Black Books provided the foundation for The Red Book.
  2. Explain the clinical relevance of Jung’s Red Book narrative to the process of individuation and the practice of psychotherapy, and begin to develop your own understanding of Jung’s paintings in his individuation process and the individuation process in general.
  3. Explain the relevance of such notions as the “spirit of the depths,” sense and nonsense, and explanation vs. understanding, the soul, the (psychological) desert, the death of the hero, to the psychotherapeutic process.
  4. Discuss the value of Active Imagination to the creative, soul-making and therapeutic process. Describe the importance that Jung places on integrating the masculine and feminine and good and evil on the process of individuation and clinical work.
  5. Discuss Jung’s notions of Spiritual Descent, and the value of Madness and Doubt, and their importance to psychotherapy.
  6. Explain Jung’s notions of rebirth of the Gods and the Self to the individuation process.
  7. Explain the role of reason, and unreason in personal development and learn to embrace the dialectic between them in doing clinical work.
  8. Describe the issues relevant to the future of Analysis vs. Medical Psychology, and the relevance of this topic to the treatment of psychologically disturbed individuals.
