The Red Book: An Encounter with Jung’s Words and Images

Saturday, June 8, 2019
9:30am – 4:30pm

A daylong seminar led by Sanford L. Drob, PhD
Note: This is a repeat of the March 30, 2019 workshop.

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 CE contact hours for Dr. Drob’s March 30, 2019, workshop on the Red Book, you cannot receive credit for this workshop. It is the same program.

This workshop will provide an introduction to Jung’s Red Book (Liber Novus) and a meditation upon a selection of Jung’s painted images. Our primary goals will be to understand the relevance of The Red Book to personal growth, the psychotherapeutic process, and the pursuit of life-meaning. We will examine the Red Book in the context of Jung’s earlier and later works, his personal crisis in relationship to Freud, and the work’s place in the history of ideas. Amongst the topics to be considered: meaning and the absurd, chaos and order, the death of the inner hero, masculine and feminine, shadow and persona, good and evil, reason and unreason, sanity and madness, “accepting all,” God and self, and the guidance of one’s soul.
