Nancy Krieger, Basic Concepts in Archetypal Theory 1/1
Feb 26 @ 17:00 – 18:45

Archetypes form the central theory of Analytical Psychology. Over his lifetime and in his published works Jung defined archetypes in many different ways. We will compare these definitions in an attempt to understand this core Jungian concept.

Katharina Casanova & Ilsabe von Uslar Ryffel, Archetypes and Complexes: Two Cornerstones of Analytical Psychology 1/1
Feb 26 @ 19:00 – 20:45

We will look at the interrelationship between archetypes and complexes and their role in analysis.

Lucienne Marguerat, Psychological Impacts of Archetypal Images 1/1
Feb 27 @ 17:00 – 18:45

We look at paintings and try to answer questions such as: What is special about archetypal images? What is the impact of archetypal motifs – father, mother, child, hero, anima, witch, wise old man – on us psychologically? We finally examine why we need archetypal images and what Jung meant when he said: “Without a doubt, archetypal images determine our fate”.
=== Basic Jung ===

Maria Anna Bernasconi, Showing the Divine: Materialisation and Spiritualisation in Various Religions 1/1
Feb 27 @ 19:00 – 20:45

Many religions symbolize the divine through sacred images. They also invoke divine presence with sound, music, scent and ritual movement. There is a danger, however, that the material manifestations of the divine are taken as the Ultimate itself. Jungian psychology maintains a clear distinction between archetypal image and archetype per se. Examples will be given to show how this may be applied to various religious traditions.

Ursula Ulmer, Archetypal Manifestations and Cultural Complexes 1/1
Feb 28 @ 19:00 – 20:45

An example of Jung and Freud’s personal (archetypal) complexes usurped by cultural complexes.=== Basic Jung ===

John Hill, Icons and Idols, Whom Do We Worship? 1/2
Mar 1 @ 10:00 – 11:45

We shall explore liminal areas to appreciate the inner spiritual potential of the idol and the outer human potential of the icon. It is hoped that this approach is less likely to activate a splitting process. Can idols of the soul become icons of divinity? Seeing the divine in all things?

Isabelle Meier, Archetypes and Complexes in Analytical Psychology: A Comparison with Other Psychotherapeutic Models 1/1
Mar 1 @ 17:00 – 18:45

Some Jungian concepts, e.g. the unconscious, consciousness and complexes are comparable with the psychoanalytic (Freudian) terms, or terms used by the Schema Therapy School. The course will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the Jungian approach as compared with others.
=== Basic Jung ===

Allan Guggenbühl, Archetypes in Analysis 1/1
Mar 1 @ 19:00 – 20:45

The notion of archetype helps us to better understand the wide range of psychological patterns, which express themselves in the lives of our patients. When we think in terms of archetypes, the chances are that we are able to perceive the qualities and potentials of the individual patient and also the mythological connotations.

Scott William Hyder, Anthropos in the Anthropocene: Archetypal and Cultural Rites of Passage through Crisis to Consciousness and Renewal of Spiritual Attitudes 1/3
Mar 6 @ 13:00 – 14:45

This course will address following themes:
crises and collapse of environment as reflective of shadow; collective shadow in fairy tale, myth and reality; suffering and initiation; limits of growth, humility and numinous in relation to “spirit of matter”; collective narcissism; wounding and individuation.
What do Jungians have to offer in a world of hurt? What does individuation mean – and require – in environments of polarising degradation, disintegration and extinctions?

Nancy Krieger & Isabelle Meier, WAE From the Inside 1/1
Mar 6 @ 17:00 – 18:45

Two recent studies using fMRI scans while conducting the Word Association Experiment have corroborated Jung’s concept of the constellation of the feeling-toned complex.
We shall look at these results and compare them with Jung’s original theory.

Dominique Lepori, Abstinence in Analysis: The Transformation of a Concept in a Century 1/1
Mar 7 @ 17:00 – 18:45

Abstinence is a core concept in Freudian psychoanalysis, yet it has undergone many crucial changes, from the surgical hand of Freud to the playful intersubjectivity of today. In the lecture we shall look at the transformation of the concept and its meaning for Analytical Psychology.

Susan Schwartz, The Blank Mother 1/1
Apr 10 @ 13:00 – 14:45

Jung’s essay on the Mother Archetype is juxtaposed with the theory developed in the book The Dead Mother from French psychoanalyst Andre Green. Both Jung and Green describe attachment situations where the psyche becomes narrowed and fragmented, affecting experiences of self and other, connection and individuation.
The presentation illustrates some of the emotionally complex and internally deadening space that can transfer from a mother to her child.
