Course Description

Jungian Archetypes are central to understanding Jungian Psychotherapy. Carl Gustav Jung, founder of analytic psychology, discovered that mandalas, masks and dolls were symbolic outward manifestations of archetypes in the collective unconscious.

Students will explore the major archetypes identified by Jung, including the shadow, anima, animus, rebirth, the wise old man, the mother, the hero, the spirit, the child, the trickster, and the Self. We create our own art therapeutic mandalas, masks and dolls in response to the Jungian archetypes of their choice.

During the workshop participants will discuss the art therapeutic process of creating mandalas, masks and dolls and how these techniques may be used by educators and mental health professionals with students and clients in their care. 

Course Goals:

  • An understanding of Jung’s archetypal psychology.
  • An appreciative attitude toward material from the collective unconscious.
  • An understanding of the development of Jung’s psychology.
  •  Introduction to a creative model for understanding symbols.
  • An art therapeutic way to understand common human experiences which can offer practical insights into the processes of personal growth and development for educators and mental health clinicians.
  • A creative way to use Jungian archetypes to assist students, clients and patients by identifying and expressing aspects of personality in need of  behavioral adjustment, conflict resolution, self-care and/or self-acceptance.
