Visions of the Self: Perspectives from Analytical Psychology and Psychoanalysis 

Human beings have a rich inner life. Forces deep within the self serve as the wellspring of our thinking and our behavior. But how are we to understand this elusive self, which at once is the most central and the most hidden aspect of our personality. As Depth Psychologists, Carl G. Jung and Sigmund Freud, and all those who have been inspired by their work, have tried to answer that question.

In this program, analytical psychology (the movement descended from Jung) and psychoanalysis (the movement descended from Freud) join together to explore the nature of the self. The life history of a patient is presented, with an emphasis on how she, in her own words, describes her experiences. Then an analytical psychologist and a psychoanalyst look at this life and explain how each perspective offers insights into the deeper forces and patterns that make this individual who she is. Also included is a discussion with the audience.
