Caring for the Soul: An Introduction to Jungian Psychotherapy for Patients and Therapists



Jungian psychotherapy is a secular method of dealing with emotional and mental problems facing modern individuals, but it also includes a specifically spiritual perspective in the work and welcomes the emergence of numinous experience into the consulting room as part of the individuation process. The experience of the numinous is seen as an important feature of attending to the needs of the soul and is indeed a key instigator of healing and the generation of a meaningful sense of identity. Hence the use of the term ‘soul’ in this seminar.

In this 3 hour live seminar, Dr. Murray Stein elucidates the fundamental features of Jungian psychotherapy. He looks at the heart of Jungian psychotherapy and its basic perspectives on the needs of the soul, the question of illness and health, and the quest for meaning and identity in a rapidly changing multicultural world. He includes one of the best historical reviews of how Jungian Psychology came into being and then spread across the globe. He explores Jung’s personal life, the first generation of Jungian analysts and the subsequent training institutions that developed.

Don’t miss this opportunity to go deeper into the fundamentals of Carl Jung and analytical psychology.
