An essential part of working with Jungian Psychology is Complex Theory. Understanding complexes and their role in the psyche is a critical step in becoming whole. Complexes appear internally in dreams and externally as symbols and projections onto others. Working with complexes allows for increased authenticity, coherence and integration.
The possession of complexes does not in itself signify neurosis . . . and the fact that they are painful is no proof of pathological disturbance. Suffering is not an illness; it is the normal counter-pole to happiness. A complex becomes pathological only when we think we have not got it.
