Jung and the
An eight week college level course
Anyone who works in the helping professions
will benefit from the important ideas covered in this course
It has been said that only the wounded healer heals, but the healer’s unattended wounds can also bring harm upon both therapist and client. The expectations that a patient or client projects onto a counselor, therapist, coach, or healer is a part of what both C. G. Jung and Sigmund Freud referred to as the transference. Join us for this free class as we discuss the importance of the transference and the archetype of the wounded healer. We’ll explore the archetypal and mythological roots of the wounded healer, as well as its contemporary manifestations in transference-countertransference phenomena. Awareness of the archetype of the wounded healer can assist those in the helping professions to remain balanced and healthy while helping others.
Join us for this free class, an overview of the archetype of the wounded healer, as well as a survey of what will be covered in our eight week college level course, which begins the following week on October 16, 2021.
