Introduction to Psychoanalytic and Jungian Ideas in a Challenging World

Birkbeck University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX. 

This course will also be run in the South West in Exeter from October 2017

This introduction to Psychoanalytic and Jungian thinking is aimed at people interested in learning more, and in looking at how these ideas can be applied in the world we live in. The course provides a sound basis for those considering psychotherapy training, but is suitable for anyone curious about this way of thinking and its relevance.

The course begins in September 2017.

The course consists of seminars exploring a range of contemporary issues through the understanding that Psychoanalytic and Jungian theory offer. Each seminar is followed by a facilitated discussion, in which the ideas and issues raised can be further opened up and links made to current events.  The course aims to kindle curiosity, encourage critical thinking, make connections, and investigate differences in a creative and inclusive group setting, enabling students to develop their own associations and ideas.
