SEXUALITY, GENDER IDENTITY AND ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY

with Dr. Dale Mathers

DATES: Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2006

The aim of this two day seminar for therapists is to explore ideas from Jung and the Post Jungians about the nature of sex and gender. Does Jung's concept of archetypes, particularly those of animus and anima, have any use today? What kind of dialogue is possible in negotiating sex and gender identity during development and within wider society? How do we use theory in practical day-to-day clinical work? We can be helped to explore this creatively by examining two myths: the story of Oedipus and the story of Eros and Psyche.
