Analytical Psychology: Historical Context
Monday, October 5, 2020
Mario Starc, MSW, PhD
The history of analytical psychology will be the focus of this section, both its relationship to Freudian theory and its roots in the intellectual culture of the times. Similarities and differences between psychoanalysis and analytical psychology will be explored.
SECTION TWO: Symbolic Attitude
Mondays, October 12, 19, 26, 2020
Yvonne Smith Tarnas, MFT, PhD
To develop the symbolic attitude, these three classes will introduce Jung’s world of the archetypal psyche, using images, film, and case material. Over our time together, we will discuss the symbolic representations in dreams, the clinical narrative, and the transference, including dynamics of synchronicity.
The Complex of Identity: Ego, Ego Development and the Structure of the Psyche
Mondays, November 2, 9, 16, 23, 2020
C. Shoshana Fershtman, JD, PhD
In this course, we explore Jung’s conceptualization of the ego, the Latin word for “I.” Jung wrote in Aion that the ego forms “the centre of the field of consciousness.” In this course, we explore Jung’s view of the ego, ego complex and identity. We explore ego development and its challenges, and the ego’s relationship to other aspects of the psyche, including the shadow, the persona and the Self.
Complexes, Persona, and Shadow
Mondays, November 30; December 7, 14, 21, 2020
Mario Starc, MSW, PhD
C.G. Jung’s description of the psyche begins with the concepts of “Complexes,” “Persona,” and “Shadow.” To help us understand human behavior, we will develop our understanding of how to apply these concepts to our clinical work through case material and mutual consultation in a group setting.

Carolyn H. Bray, PhD
Participants will be given an opportunity to evaluate the course to date: clarity of concepts, applicability of practices, incorporating course material into clinical practice.
Approaching the Unconscious: An Analytic Attitude
Mondays, January 11, 25; February 8, 2021
Tina Stromsted, PhD, MFT, LPCC, BC-DMT, RSME/T
Our goal will be to reflect on approaches to accessing the unconscious including the creative arts, the body in analysis and applying embodied methods of inner work toward a range of populations and clinical settings along with the importance of nonverbal, creative dimensions in the healing process.
Anima and Animus, Female and Male
Mondays, February 22; March 1, 8,15, 2021
Lauren Cunningham, LCSW and
Christopher Cunningham, PhD
Using Jung’s seminal writing, we will start with a historical account of his concepts of anima and animus, which pertain to the union of opposites and the emergence of the Self. Clinical material will be presented and compared to alchemical images. We will bring our conversation into relationship with modern cultural constructions of gender and sexuality and consider ways to inform our clinical work with contemporary gender theory and cultural struggles.
Mondays, March 22; April 5, 12, 19, 2021
John Beebe, MD
Jung’s psychological types are not types of people, but types of consciousness. In this course, we will learn to differentiate the eight types of consciousness Jung identified, as well as explore what Jung meant by the terms “rational” and “irrational” as well as extroverted and introverted as qualities of consciousness. We will learn to recognize the types of consciousness and see how the types relate to archetypal roles each of us take up.
Archetypes, Myths, and the Personal Psyche
Mondays, April 26; May 3, 10, 17, 2021
Alan Ruskin, PhD
Past the domain of the personal unconscious we encounter the impersonal realm of what Jung termed archetypes, energies in what he conceived of as the collective unconscious. We will explore how archetypes manifest themselves in various cultures’ myths, as well as our individual mythologies, and how during the clinical hour they influence the process of transference.
The Self, Ego-Self Alignment and Estrangement
Mondays, May 24; June 7, 14, 21, 2021
Maria Ellen Chiaia, PhD, MFT
To understand the basis of Jungian depth psychotherapy and dream work, we will focus on the developing relationship between the ego and the Self as posited by Jung’s concept of the “Individuation process.” We will discuss the emergence of ego functioning out of the Self, as well as the Self as a driver and symbol of psychological integration, wholeness.
Final Course Integration and Evaluation
Monday, June 28, 2021
Carolyn H. Bray, PhD
A focus on integrating course concepts and practical applications, a discussion of participants’ clinical development, identification of avenues for further study, and a course evaluation will comprise our final session.
