Fundamentals, Cultural Aspects of Analytical Psychology, Individuation

DESCRIPTION

In this time together we will discuss and practice writing a fairytale analysis from an analytical perspective. There will be time to establish an overall structure and approach to the task of analysis from initial reading of the tale to establishing the psychological situation and onto exploring ways to weave together the symbolic amplifications with the overall narrative structure of the essay. We will draw on the work of Marie Louise von Franz, Verena Kast and Jung.
