Psyche and Music
December 7, 1996 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
What is the importance and significance of sound and music to analytic work? In dialogue with the theories of Jung, Kohut and Bonny, we will explore the use of music as a therapeutic modality, relating it to active imagination and to clinical and symbolic aspects of music and the psychotherapeutic process. The lecture will include music.
Saturday’s workshop will include an experiential portion; participants will explore their own responses in imagery in response to music. Please wear comfortable clothing.
