Who is the man behind the science?
  • Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and the founder of Jungian psychology.

So what is Jungian Psychology?

“One must be open to the parts of oneself beyond one’s own ego”.

-Carl Jung

the unconscious
The Unconscious
  • Unconscious experiences such as dreams are thought to show ideas, beliefs, and feelings.
  • These feelings are often not yet addressed in the conscious.
  • Expressed in metaphors.

What is the significance of Lockwood’s dream? What is it a metaphor for?

“Begone!" I shouted; "I'll never let you in -- not if you beg for twenty years." "It is twenty years," mourned the voice -- "twenty years. I've been a waiting for twenty years!" Thereat began a feeble scratching outside, and the pile of books moved as if thrust forward. I tried to jump up, but could not stir a limb, and so yelled aloud in a frenzy of fright."

the archetypes
The Archetypes






Self (Archetype)

  • A theme often represented through mythological figures.
  • Center of Individualization.
  • “Although a person is a collection of all the archetypes…the self is what makes that person an I. The self cannot exist without the other archetypes and the other archetypes cannot exist without the self.”
  • The ideal form someone wishes to be.

Anima and Animus (Archetype)

  • “Soul Image”
  • Anima= Feminine
  • Animus= Masculine
  • One of the most significant complexes
  • It typically appears in dreams, and influences a man’s interactions and attitudes toward women, and vice versa for a woman with men.

Persona (Archetype)

  • The face that is put on for the world.
  • It is seen as a mask.
  • The breakdown of the persona constitutes the typically Jungian moment in therapy when the persona – breaks down and allows the true self to come through.
shadow archetype

“His reserve springs from an aversion to showy displays of feeling—to manifestations of mutual kindliness… No. I’m running too fast. I bestow my own attributes over liberally on him.”

Shadow Archetype

“Do you mark those two lines between your eyes; and those thick brows, that, instead of rising arched, sink in the middle; and that couple of black fiends, so deeply buried, who never open their windows boldly, but lurk glinting under them, like devil's spies?”

Definition: repressed qualities of the conscious self.

Interaction with the shadow: Denial, projection, integration, and assimilation.
