One of Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung’s most notable and underlying theories contributing to the field of psychology is the concept referred to in Jungian terms as the “Ego/Self axis.” It suggests a relationship between an individual’s conscious and unconscious psychological life. The term “Ego” signifies one’s consciousness, and the term “Self” identifies the overall organizing principle uniting the psychological whole of an individual. In the field of psychology, we are generally more familiar working with the consciousness of an individual, often referred to as the self, but in this seminar we will expand on that knowledge to include an understanding of different types of consciousness: introverted, extroverted, feeling, thinking, sensory, intuitive. We will extend our awareness of consciousness into the less familiar, the land of the unconscious or the psyche. We will examine this relationship in a didactic, discussion, and case presentation format. Through case presentations, participants will come to recognize how unconscious material can materialize in individual sessions via dreams, gestures, fantasies, body movement, metaphors, identifications with fictional characters, etc. This unconscious material can be golden for the process of personal psychological development. Becoming consciously aware of the shadows lurking in the unconscious can bring light into the darkness of certain fears, uncertainties, and self-doubts, therefore becoming transformative.
