Online Continuing Education Course Fall 2020
The Art of Psyche: Active Imagination and Art
5 consecutive Wednesdays, 6:00-7:30 pm, beginning October 7, 2020
7.5 CE contact hours for licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists.
An online course using Zoom platform.
We will explore the intimate relation between the art of psyche, active imagination and art. Our main focus will be on the role of active imagination in the psychic origin of artistic creation. Jung defines active imagination as a technique for evoking images from the unconscious and then actively engaging those images. By creating a series of dreams, visions, and spontaneous images during the course we will have the opportunity to observe the creative process in motion, in visual forms of the collective unconscious psychologically speaking in terms of the symbolic, compensatory, amplification, and unconscious complexes.
