Are there right and wrong ways to imagine, things we should or should not feel, think, desire?


 

 

 

Our greatest innovations, works of art, and acts of compassion emerge from the human imagination as do our horrific atrocities. How we imagine matters. But the imagination is not a tool at our ready disposal, to direct as we will. Therapists work in an intersubjective imaginal field. C.G. Jung suggested that, “Every psychic process is an image and an imagining.” Our imaginations fill with the experiences, conscious and unconscious, of our clients. Those experiences interact with our own in ways that are mysterious and as potentially destructive as they are potentially transformative--for them and for us. Our imaginings of our clients, our fantasies of and with them, come unbidden. Rather than attempting to ignore or control those fantasies, however, we can learn how to host them in ways that honor the potential for growth and healing in both therapist and client. In this workshop, we will use lecture, film, and discussion to explore the ethical dimension of the imagination in the practice of psychotherapy.
