SUBJECTS COVERED

Developmental Models, Psychopathology, Post Jungian Theory and Practice

DESCRIPTION

These seminars will provide an overview of developmental approaches to the emergence of self with a focus on relational theories of the mind, attachment and neuroscience. They will explore the role of early relations in the psyche’s capacity for emotion and rational thought, and how early relations shape one’s ability to connect with reality and engage in symbolic processes that generate meaning. The seminars will examine the relevance of these approaches for analytical psychology and Jung’s idea of individuation, their application to clinical practice and their implications for our understanding of pathology and the analytic task.
