Module 1 - Live Lecture July 6, 2026

The Therapy Relationship and the Goals of the Work

We will talk about some very different approaches to the therapy relationship. These will range from understanding it as an ordinary human relationship, to considering various relational approaches, to discussion of transference-countertransference. Jung’s views on these matters will be discussed and his pioneering status in terms of today’s interest in ‘relationality’ will be highlighted. In addition, the question of what psychotherapy is for, and what its aims and goals might be, will receive attention. We will assume that there is no one single way to enter these matters.

presented by Professor Andrew Samuels

He has been referred to as ‘the most celebrated of today’s Jungian analysts’ (in American Imago). He is a former Chair of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.

UPCOMING IN THE THERAPY RELATIONSHIP


Module 2 - Recorded Lecture Available by July 13, 2024 - See Note**

The Infant Relationship to Objects and the Inner Landscape

Dr. Austin will discuss two of her papers which were published in the Journal of Analytical Psychology in 2016 entitled “Working with chronic and relentless self- hatred, self-harm and existential shame: a clinical study and reflections” parts I and II. The first of these papers was jointly awarded the JAP’s Fordham Prize for 2016 (see https://thejap.org/the-michael-fordham-prize). These papers explore some of  the theoretical and experiential reference points that have emerged in her work with people whose relationship to their body and/or sense of self is dominated by  self- hatred and (what Hultberg describes as) existential shame. The first paper focuses on self-hatred and the second paper focuses on shame. The second paper continues the discussion of the clinical material introduced in the first paper in the light of Jung’s and Laplanche’s emphasis on experiences of unresolvable, non-pathological ‘foreignness’ or ‘otherness’ at the heart of the psyche. Images, metaphors, elements of clinical experience, and working hypotheses from a number of analytic traditions are used to flesh out this exploration.

Module 3 - Live Lecture July 27, 2024

Interpretation in Jungian Analysis – Art and Technique

The issue of interpretation is fundamental to the process of analysis or any psychology of depth. It is the medium by which our art form is transmitted. If the analytic vessel is thought of as our canvas, then our interpretations are the paints with which the depth psychologist participates with the patient in the creation of the painting. What one chooses to say in analysis, why one chooses that particular thing to say, how one says it, when one says it – these are some of the building blocks of the interpretive process. It is an important tool to develop proficiency with, but it can’t be used effectively if we don’t develop fluency with it.

Learning Objectives
1. Differentiate between an interpretation and other non-interpretive interventions in therapy/analysis.
2. Explore of the origins of the interpretive process within the psychoanalytic world.
3. Differentiate between various levels of interpretation.
4. Examine style of language in interpretation
5. Understand interpretation from a Jungian perspective.

Module 4 - Live Lecture August 10, 2024

Ego, Shadow and the Four Stages of Transformation

The confrontation with the shadow: personally, collectively and archetypally is the first stage and keystone of the journey to consciousness, wholeness and in Jung’s terms, individuation. This module will focus on identifying, unmasking and engaging with the subject’s shadow material, both in its personal and subjective aspect and in its collective constellation in the therapeutic setting. This module will consider the definitions and roles of both the ego and the shadow and their dialectical relationship in Jungian analysis. We will look at questions of when and where the ego is functional and where it is inhibiting the subject’s individuation process.

We will consider how engagement with the shadow can break an ego deadlock and potentially fertilise the subject’s identity and individuation process, and where such engagement may be overwhelming for the ego. Once identified, Jung provides a four-step process for engaging and redeeming or transmuting shadow material: confession, elucidation, education and transformation. These steps mirroring the four alchemical stages of transmutation: Nigredo, Albedo, Citrinitas and Rubedo. We will consider each of these stages in detail and their practical application in therapy.
