Public Programs & Continuing Education

The Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts & the Philadelphia Jung Institute host Public Programs which are designed for clinicians, but are open to all who are eager to explore and be enriched by the ideas of Carl Jung and analytical psychology for their personal and professional development. No prior knowledge of Jungian thought is required. Our events offer the opportunity to hear from presenters on the leading edge of depth psychology, nationally and internationally. Most are published and have made significant contributions to the field. This format includes audience dialogue to enhance its relevance to individual interests.

When Continuing Education credit is available it will be noted with the program description.

  • Continuing Education For Professionals

      There are currently no continuing education programs solely for professionals. However, many of our public programs offer continuing education credits for mental health professionals.

      Workshop for Clinicians
      Working With Complexes: An Introduction To Depth Psychotherapy
      Robert Sheavly, LICSW, DSCW

      October 13, 2012       8:45 am - 12:15 pm
      Core to much of psychotherapy is the task of assisting the client to identify and modify repetitive, self-defeating patterns of behavior and in so doing, expand consciousness. From the Jungian perspective, such patterns are understood as complexes. Complexed behavior is essentially unconscious behavior and is referred to in a variety of ways depending on the psychological theory: The false self/adapted self; a sub-personality; childhood wounding; a script. Even colloquial usage reflects this experience: having a “button” (as in, “She pushed my button” or a “part” (as in, “I have an angry part”). These patterns are clinically challenging not only because of the unwanted aspect of the pattern which is in the client’s awareness (often the presenting problem) but because of the unconscious elements in the pattern as well as even deeper archetypal (universal) elements. This workshop will use lecture and discussion to briefly review Jung’s theory of the structure of the psyche. Experiential methodologies including demonstration and journaling will be used to explore the clinical dimension of working with complexes -- either our own (please be kind enough to bring one) or those of our clients.

      This workshop is approved by the APA for 3 hours of CE credit.
