This introductory course will focus on dreams and their relation to complexes, complexes and their relation to archetypal motifs, and archetypal motifs and their relation to individuation. Class participants will acquaint themselves with Jung’s theories of complexes, archetypes, and individuation by drawing on your experiences and readings you may have done. In addition, class participants should come prepared to discuss dreams that you yourselves have had or dreams of people you work with, i.e., clients or patients. Dreams of friends and relatives should be avoided. Interpretations of dreams in the class will be tentative, hypothetical, and theoretical, and should not be considered to have validity beyond their hypothetical and theoretical value.
