Carl Gustav Jung

Key Concepts: Complexes / Transcendent Function / Mytho-poetic Psyche / ‘Prospective’ Interpretation of Dreams / Active Imagination / Independence of the Unconscious / ‘Creative Illness’ / Contemporary ideas in Analytical Psychology

Four hours cannot begin to cover the wide breadth of Jung’s sixty years of collective work. Instead, I will speak about elements of Jungian Psychology and its practical applications that have had the most impact on my work and evolution as a therapist. For instance, we’ll discuss the influences upon Jung of the biographical, historical and cultural context in which he was born into. What we call today, ‘object relations’, ‘the inter-subjective field’, ‘the relational school’, ‘self psychology’, ‘cultural studies’, ‘deconstruction’, and ‘eco-psychology’, were all clearly evident in his early clinical formulations. His most accessible writing, Two Essays on Analytical Psychology, contains clinical examples that illuminate his primary ideas on the unconscious, creativity, dreams, and soul. Excerpts from the famous BBC interview, two years before his death, offers us a glimpse into the spirit of the man.

Two brief and accessible pre-seminar readings are a necessary introduction to the material: Intro to Jung’s Life & Work, and Jung as a Pioneer of Relational Analysis. Additional suggested Reading: Jung’s “The Relations Between the Ego and the Unconscious,” the second of the Two Essays on Analytical Psychology.

Kenneth Kimmel, MFT is a Jungian psychoanalyst with thirty-five years of clinical practice, and co-founder of The New School for Analytical Psychology. He was Director of The Pacific Northwest Center for Dream Studies for the first twenty years of his career, working with over thirty thousand dreams. As a writer, teacher and consultant, he has presented locally, in the US and internationally. His interests lie in the intersection and gaps between psychoanalysis, philosophy and theology.
