Lecture: Revalation in a Modern Dream: A New Image of the Divine

Manifestations of the Self are experienced as ongoing revelations within the individual psyche. In the dream to be explored, a woman’s image of God is transformed, her acceptance of aging and death was radically enhanced, and light is shed on the androgynous nature of divinity.

Workshop: Jungian Psychology and Kohut’s Self Psychology

This workshop will compare and contrast Jung’s theory of the Self with recent in developmental psychoanalytic self psychology, particularly those of Kohut. In certain areas, self psychology is rapidly replacing both classical psychoanalytical drive theory and ego psychology as the major conceptual modality of practicing analysts. Kohut’s theory bears several important similarities and differences from Jungian theory which will be explored in depth. No prior familiarity with Kohut will be assumed, but a working knowledge of traditional psychodynamic psychology will be helpful for participants.
