The Value of Introversion: The Clinical Application of One of Jung’s Least Understood Concepts
– Presented by John Beebe, PhD [SEMINAR]
Sat February 12, 2022 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$130 – $150
The nature of introversion and its relation to extraversion has often been misunderstood since C. G. Jung made these contrasting attitudes central to his theory of psychological types one hundred years ago. In this seminar we will explore how introverted and extraverted types of consciousness serve as checks and balances on each other, as both are necessary to healthy adaptation.
We will identify four types of introverted consciousness that each of us has some degree of access to and explore the difference between introversion and social phobia. We will talk about how to support clients in whom introverted consciousness predominates and also how to help more extraverted clients engage with introverted consciousness, which helps such clients reflect on and integrate their extraverted experience.
Upon completing this seminar, participants should be able to:
- Explain how introverted and extraverted forms of awareness complement and serve as checks and balances on each other.
- List the eight types of consciousness that Jung distinguished in Psychological Types.
- Describe the qualitative difference between seeking to merge with an object and seeking to compare and match that object to a pre-existing archetype.
- Identify two forms of introverted consciousness that Jung labeled “irrational” and explain why the label “irrational” in this context is not pejorative.
- Discuss the difference between healthy introversion and social phobia.
- List a key word that can be used to mirror what one of the four introverted types of consciousness focuses on doing.
