Once we understand the basic theory of C.G. Jung's psychology, we must understand its application. Learning how to amplify and interpret symbols appearing in dreams and active imagination are essential elements of applied Jungian psychology.
How did Jung use dreams, active imagination, myths and fairy tales in his work?
The psychological theory of C.G. Jung is both complex and elegant, and speaks to the psychological challenges posed by modernity. Understanding Jung’s theory is important, but what then? How does one apply Jung’s theory in order to better integrate conscious and unconscious? This course will introduce you to the key methods and techniques that Jung and other Jungians have employed in order to apply Jung’s theory to practical life challenges. Through eight the eight college-level modules Dr. James Newell will guide you step-by-step through the essential methods used in the application of Jungian theory to the psychological challenges posed by contemporary life.
