In fairy tales, says Jung, the psyche tells its own story as it does in dreams. Fairy tales give us joy in listening, surprise in their turn of events and provide answers to problems. They portray collective psychic principles and speak to our personal experience and problems in images and symbols. Fairy tales can be used therapeutically: they speak to the depth of the imagination and inspire new ways to address issues.
In the Fall of 2016, I lead a seminar and group discussion of fairy tales for psychotherapists. We meet once a month on Wednesdays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm near I5/217 and PCC Syvania exit. The group is small. I ask that you please commit and come to three consecutive meetings. I will collect a small fee of $60 for the three sessions prior to the first meeting to reserve your space. Please check this blog for a starting date. Therapists in training can waive a portion of the fee if necessary. Feel free to give me a call: 503 699 1664.
I am a Jungian analyst and a psychologist on the West coast of the USA in Lake Oswego near Portland, Oregon.I also consult with candidates in training in Jungian analytical psychology in Marana, AZ north of Tucson
