Case colloquia & supervision are open to therapists from different orientation
There are two goals of the case colloquia in Jungian training: integration and differentiation.
Therefore, in the case colloquia there is an effort made to bring together, in a more cohesive pattern:
- The therapist’s conceptual knowledge of Analytical Psychology ( i.e., the theories which make up the structure of Analytical Psychology).
- The therapist’s grasp and application of various systems of archetypal symbolism.
- The therapist’s ability to understand and interpret dreams.
- The therapist’s capacity to utilize and metabolize various aspects of the transference - countertransference relationship (included in this is the therapist’s understanding and relationship to their own complexes and defenses).
- The therapist’s clinical technique (i.e., what is said to the patient, how it is said, when it is said, and why it is said).
- Finally, it involves the further development of the therapist’s analytic attitude or the capacity to “think psychologically”, i.e., to work on a metaphorical/ imagistic level, to see connections between subtle events and experiences, and to tolerate ambiguity and non-dichotomous experience.
